Oakridge Houses for Sale
Oakridge is a cozy residential neighborhood in Calgary's southwest quadrant that would be a great place to raise a family. First established in 1968, Oakridge has a population of just over 5,000 residents, approximately one fifth of which are immigrants.
Located just south of the Glenmore Reservoir in Calgary SW, Oakridge is bordered on its west side by the Tsuu T'ina First Nation reserve, on its south side by the Cedarbrae neighborhood (divided at Southland Drive), and on its east by the Palliser neighborhood (divided at 24th Street West).
The area boasts a number of great options for those interested in purchasing real estate. Homes for sale predominate, however, as less than 10% of the available properties are used for renting. In fact, less than 2% of the buildings in this area are listed as condos or apartments, with the vast majority consisting of single family homes or affordable, split-level bungalows.
One great thing about Oakridge is its proximity to the beautiful green spaces of South Glenmore Park and Weaselhead Flats, which also happens to be accessible by bike. The shoreline of the Glenmore Reservoir, located just north of the neighborhood, is another part of the natural landscape that can be enjoyed by residents.
It is a short drive to the center of Calgary, only 25 minutes by car, and about double that via public transportation.
The community of Oakridge has a number of options for education either in Oakridge proper, or in a very nearby location. The options include:
- Louis Riel Elementary and Junior High (in Oakridge)
Residents can also use some of the other education options nearby, which include:
- John Ware High School (a five minute drive east, in Pump Hill)

- Dr. EP Scarlett High School (a ten minute drive south east, in Canyon Meadows)
