Canyon Meadows, which was established in 1965, is very accessible as it is surrounded by major roads: Anderson Road to the north, Canyon Meadows Drive to the south, Macleod Trail to the east, and 14 Street W to the west.
Not that you really need to leave the community that much when it has almost everything that you need. Fish Creek Provincial Park, the second largest urban park in Canada, is located just south of Canyon Meadows. The neighbourhood also has a golf course within the community, the Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club.
A number of schools also serve Canyon Meadows: Canyon Meadows Elementary, St. Catherine Elementary, Robert Warren Junior High, and Dr. E. P. Scarlett Senior High.
