5 Great Reasons to Live in The Gardens

5 Great Reasons to Live in The Gardens

Situated within a picturesque cul-de-sac in The Parks of Harvest Hills, The Gardens present a unique opportunity for home buyers to live in a fun little community unlike many they’ve seen before. These paired homes offer plenty of space to grow your family while remaining close to established amenities. If you’re unsure if this space is for you, we’ve got 5 great reasons why you belong in The Gardens.


Right in the centre of the cul-de-sac you will find a beautifully landscaped green space where neighbours can gather and interact with each other. For those with a green thumb, there are raised garden beds that present the opportunity for some community garden projects to take place. If getting out and being active is more your jam, many of these homes back on to the community path network where you can strap on your shoes and head out for a scenic run. You will also find a beautiful naturalized pond right beside the Gardens where you can escape to for some relaxation.


When you live in The Parks of Harvest Hills you will never have a hard time getting around the city. Both Deerfoot Trail and Stoney Trail are just a hop, skip and a jump away. If you work downtown, there is a City of Calgary Transit stop just in front of the showhomes in the Gardens and Route 88 takes you directly downtown. For more information on this option, click here and search route 88. For all the globetrotters out there, the Calgary International Airport is just a short 10-minute drive away. Finally, if you’re just looking to get out for a walk or run, the community path network connects directly to Calgary’s regional path network where you can follow the trail all the way downtown to the Calgary Zoo (and beyond).

One of the best perks of living in The Gardens are the perks you receive from your low monthly condo fees. For just $100 a month, you can rest easy knowing that your streets will be maintained throughout the winter, so you don’t have to worry about not making it out of your cul-de-sac when the snow hits. In addition, you will receive top of the line waste management as the Gardens is equipped with Molok waste bins. Check out our blog post here for all the perks of these state of the art bins, including less need for garbage pick-ups and minimized odours. In addition to these services, there are a few designated visitor spots near the central green space for guests to park when they come visit you in your new home.


There’s no question that our paired homes in The Parks of Harvest Hills hardly feel like a paired home at all thanks to their spacious and wide floorplans. These homes range in size from 1,788 to 1,993 square feet and each include a minimum of 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. There are four different models to choose from – the Orchid, the Blossom, the Peony, and the Lotus. These homes come with single or double attached garages, and some even come with walk-out basements. Plus, for a limited time only, free basement development is included.


Seeing as though The Parks of Harvest Hills is in an already established area of Calgary, homeowners have easy access to several nearby amenities. Just down Country Hills Boulevard you will find a wide variety of shops including a Sobeys, Shoppers Drug Mart, Home Depot and more! If you really want to get your shop on Cross Iron Mills is 10 minutes away and when it’s time to relax and enjoy a movie, Landmark Cinemas is less than 5 minutes away. There are plenty of great dining options in the area as well such as Amici Italian Grill & Lounge, Woody’s Taphouse, Ginger Beef Bistro House, Via Cibo and more. T&T Market is also a short 6-minute drive away to refill all your grocery needs. When you live in The Gardens, you will never have to drive far to find the things you need.
