Vista Heights was established in 1962. It is bordered by the Trans-Canada Highway to the south and Deerfoot Trail to the west--these are two of the most important roads in Calgary.
The neighbourhood is serviced by Vista Heights Elementary, and other public schools. A lot of commercial opportunities are just around the corner including South Airways Industrial Park, which borders it to the north and east, as well as McCall Industrial Park and Sunridge Industrial Park.
Within the community, there are also a lot of greenspaces where neighbours bond and stay active. There are also beautiful golf courses nearby.
