List of homes for sale in Shawnessy, Evergreen &  Millrise
View live MLS listing of every home for sale in Calgary

These communities lie south of Fish Creek Park, and on the west side of Macleod Trail. Tn hese communities are new, having been built since 1980. New office buildings and the extension of the south LRT are expected to reduce commuting time for residents. The community is rapidly becoming a shopper's paradise with many big box stores attracted to the 25,000 area residents in the "young family" demographic. Two low-density communities are close to the Fish Creek Park: Shawnee is built around the Shawnee Slopes golf course, while Evergreen Estates is to the west. Millrise and Shawnessy are higher density communities with mostly single family homes. Some newer developments to the south and west (in Somerset/Somerside) are including townhomes and condos, trading off affordability for a higher density reminiscent of the Inner City.

These communities are new and can provide only elementary schools for both boards. High School students must commute to schools north of Fish Creek, though a major High School facility is in the planning stages for the area.

The west side of Macleod Trail provides a number of "category killer" big box stores to meet almost every need. The small Midnapore Mall is across Macleod Trail, the upscale Avenida Mall is just north of Fish Creek, and Southcentre -- the largest mall in the area -- is just north of Anderson Rd.

Most of the recreation is around Fish Creek Park, with its recreational pathways that link to the Bow River pathway system to the east. There is an indoor pool in Canyon Meadows, and two wave pools, the Southland Leisure Centre to the north, and the Family Leisure Centre to the east. Shawnee Slopes golf course is in the middle of the community. The Famous Players Coliseum movie theatres are right on Macleod Trail.
