Although Deer Ridge is not directly adjacent to Fish Creek Provincial Park, residents of our community enjoy access to Fish Creek Provincial Park via Bow Bottom Trail, Canyon Meadows Drive or the pathway. Our location also provides access to other parts of the City and to the Downtown, which is approximately 15 kilometres northwest of Deer Ridge. This predominantly single family residential community began to develop in 1978.
