Five Reasons You Should Consider Moving to New Brighton

Posted by Rachel R. Vanderveen on Monday, January 7th, 2013 at 1:18pm.

Located in Southeast Calgary, New Brighton is one of the city’s newest neighbourhoods. Inspired by the English countryside, this idyllic community offers a picturesque park and pond. But it’s not just a pretty place to live; New Brighton, with its extensive indoor and outdoor recreational facilities, and proximity to the urban district is a paradise for the active family of today.

  1. Active Family Living
    Scenic views around the area of New Brighton are abundant within the twenty acre central park and the twelve acre pond. A family walk, a friendly game of frisbee, or a leisurely bike ride are all a reality in this community green space. Your routine morning jog or your afternoon dog walk will be a fulfilling experience in the beautiful park setting of New Brighton.
  2. New Brighton Club
    The New Brighton Clubs offers recreational activities for active families, adults and youths alike. Summer activities offered at the club include volleyball, basketball and tennis courts, as well as a waterpark to play and cool off in. Hockey rinks, a skating pond, and a winter fire pit are all a part of this full service club. Residents have access to the most popular recreational programs, such as fitness, wellness and dance classes among others.
  3. A Connected Community
    New Brighton has created an interactive website for residents to stay connected with the community and their neighbours. This online community has forums for residents to participate in and stay up to date with neighbourhood programs, events and activities. This program has instilled a strong sense of togetherness and community among residents of New Brighton.
  4. The Seton Urban District
    Currently under construction, Seton is poised to become Calgary’s most vibrant urban district outside of downtown. This 365 acre urban development will be a mix of office and residential space, healthcare and education facilities, as well as recreation, shopping, and dining. Seton will surely be an asset to the South Calgary area and a popular destination for New Brighton residents looking for some nearby city action.
  5. Affordability
    One of the best things about the desirable community of New Brighton is its affordability. No longer will perspective buyers have to choose between the home they want and the home they can afford with housing starting in the mid $200s. An attractive mix of condominiums, townhomes, starter homes and move up homes by a variety of different developers will ensure that New Brighton will have something for you and your family.

Few suburban neighbourhoods offer such a sense of small town community without sacrificing an active and fulfilling lifestyle as New Brighton with its large park and pond, the New Brighton Club, and the dynamic online community forums. With the lively urban district of Seton being constructed in the area, all the most wanted amenities of the city are nearby. Combine all that with reasonable housing prices, and your vision of the future may just become a reality. So, what are you waiting for?
