Coming home to Mother Nature’s playground

With its close proximity to Calgary and stunning Rocky Mountain vistas, Redwood Meadows encompasses mountain living.

The area earned its name after a 1940 brush fire that destroyed most of the area. Elders of the T’suu Tina Nation noticed regrowth of trees in that area had a reddish colour to them and dubbed the area “Redwood Yard.”

In the early 1970s, the community was developed by the T’suu Tina Nation, just off the historic Cowboy Trail. The more than 1,100 residents can enjoy amenities such as an athletic field, baseball diamond, tennis courts, outdoor skating rink and, central to the community, Redwood House.

The tight-knit community features several local events, including dinner theatres, carnivals and welcome-to-the-neighbourhood parties for new residents.

Bordered by the Elbow River, the community surrounds the championship layout of the Redwood Meadows Golf and Country Club. Designed by architects Bill Newis and Stan Leonard, the course features a natural terrain combined with water hazards and distinctive holes that make it a challenge for golfers of all skillsets.

Whatever the season, residents of Redwood Meadows also have Mother Nature’s playground at their feet – from the West Bragg Creek Nordic Trails to the south to Elbow Falls and Kananaskis to the west.
