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.
Forest Lawn is a beacon of cultural diversity and entrepreneurial spirit
When one thinks about Calgary’s southeast community of Forest Lawn, one of the first things that come to mind is its lively food scene.
“I try to take a meander through the area at least once a month, exploring new restaurants and grabbing some great ingredients from the local ethnic food stores,” said Jenna McNab, who loves to whip up authentic culinary gems. Although she doesn’t live in the neighbourhood, like many Calgarians she considers Forest Lawn’s International Avenue a can’t-miss destination.
However, Forest Lawn is about more than just food. It’s also about diversity and inspiration.
