The population of Douglasdale in 2011 was 11,768, a large amount of persons for a community in Calgary by far. 4,088 homes, mostly of the single-family style, make up the community and range in price from $400,000 to $600,000. Although these prices are hardly the lowest in Calgary, they are very accessible considering the surrounding communities. The sister community of Douglasdale, Douglasglen, is the more affluent.
Despite its relative affordability, Douglasdale does not disappoint when it comes to convenience — shopping, transit, and recreation for example — as well as location, placed directly next to the Bow River.
Express route 102 provides transit services to residents of Douglasdale. Busses stop at three points within the community, and the nearest terminal is located on Deerfoot Trail.
Parks & Recreation
Two main attractions, as far as proximity, draw Douglasdale residents to the area: the Eaglequest Golf Driving Range and the Douglasbank Park. Instead of a golf course and country club, the driving range offers something different for avid golfers — the chance to practice their swing specifically, no matter the distance. The Douglasbank Park, on the other hand, provides the outdoor space community members want without the undesirable long drive.
Douglasdale also offers other conveniences; for example, quick shopping trips are a cinch with the closeness of the Douglas Square Shopping Centre and favorite stops like Starbucks. The Scotiabank Theatre Chinook, Landmark Cinemas 10 Shawnessy and Canyon Meadows Cinemas round-out the local recreation.
