Cougar Ridge is an upscale community found in the west sector of Calgary’s southwest quadrant, a desirable area also known as the Westside. Established in 2001, the community is nestled away directly behind Canada Olympic Park on the edge of a plateau that overlooks much of northwest Calgary as well as the Bow River Valley and mountains to the west.
Although mostly single-family homes, there are some attached developments in the area which provide options for a more broader spectrum of buyers. All Cougar Ridge homes for sale are close to outdoor green spaces as well as amenities along 85th Street SW while being less than 20 minutes to downtown.

Cougar Ridge is a smaller community compared to its neighbours Aspen and West Springs. One thing it does have that these two communities don’t is a beautiful location on top of the Springbank plateau that gives some of its homes spectacular panoramic views.
While many Cougar Ridge homes for sale were built throughout the 2000s, there are a limited amount that were more recently constructed in 2013 in a subdivision called ‘Paskapoo’. Located directly behind Canada Olympic Park’s ski-jumps, Paskapoo is an exclusive part of the neighbourhood and is home to some of its most luxurious properties.
