Brimming with families, many of whom have been in the community for decades, Applewood Park extends to the north from International Avenue near Elliston Park in Calgary’s southeast. Big houses, double-car garages perfect for home workshops, and large yards are a few of the defining characteristics of this community developed in the early 1980s.
Chestermere maintains its charm amidst rapid growth and development
When Toni Lynne Cousineau and her husband, Larry, moved to Calgary in 1996, they weren’t familiar with the city. Even though they initially lived in Applewood Park, on the city’s eastern edge, they did not know about Chestermere. “We didn’t even know it existed,” said.
It was through her employment with a local builder that Cousineau first discovered Chestermere, when she ended up working in a show home there. It was a case of love at first sight.
