Castleridge is just east of Calgary International Airport. It was established in 1980. The area originally belonged to Rocky View County but was annexed to Calgary City in 1961.
The neighbourhood is home to some of the most active organizations in Calgary. The North East Family Connections, for example, provides free community-responsive services to residents of Castleridge and other towns. Castleridge working parents can take advantage of the available play-school classes in the centre as well as before- and after-school programs. The Boys and Girls Club of Calgary is also active in Castleridge.
The neighbourhood is also home to Baitun Nur, the largest mosque in Canada. It is 48,000 square feet and has a 97-foot steel-capped minaret tower.
