Tuscany is a residential outer suburb in the northwest of Calgary that takes its name and inspiration from the rolling hills of the Italian countryside.
Established in 1994, the community is one of the fastest growing of Calgary’s suburbs. The 19,000 residents occupy over 1,000 hectares, and there’s still more room for growth.
Those who live here, while having access to big-city convenience, are at the far west of the city, so enjoy panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains, as well as quick escape routes to both foothills and ski hills.
The neighbourhood includes a 170-hectare natural ravine system that has been set aside as an environmental reserve.
There are a couple of schools in Tuscany:
Tuscany School (kindergarten – grade four)
Twelve Mile Coulee School (grades five to nine)
Crowchild Trail and Stoney Trail are the main arteries taking Tuscanites in and out by road.
The CTrain hasn’t reached Tuscany yet, but it’s on its way. The extension of the northwest line is expected to reach the community in 2014.
