Bridlewood was first built in 1998, which means it’s a very young community compared to others in Calgary. Development has not occurred on all sides, so this community is quite peaceful; however, that doesn’t mean Bridlewood is lacking when it comes to any of the amenities expected by residents.
The community is bordered by 37th St to the west, James McKevitt to the east, 22X to the south and 162nd Av to the north. The highest priced homes in the area cost around $700,000, while the lowest priced homes cost around $350,000. Approximately 4,200 homes are located in Bridlewood with, as of 2012, nearly 12,000 people living within them.
Bus route 14 stops at Bridlecreek as well as Bridlewood with a terminal at Somerset-Bridlewood.
