Situated in the southwest quadrant of Calgary, Discovery Ridge is established on the Jackson Valley land, intended to be a gated community and originally called New Discovery. Discovery Ridge founded in 1990, is home to an estimate of 4,000 residents. Up and coming and family oriented, Discovery Ridge has one school in their community, Montessori. However, many options for schools just outside the neighbourhood including, Jennie Elliot Elementary, Bishop Pinkham Junior High, and Ernest Manning High School. A great community with multiple amenities, restaurants, coffee shops, and dance studio. Any larger amenities are just a quick drive out the gates.
