Settle in at Sage Hill

As one of Calgary’s fastest-growing northwest communities, residents love that Sage Hill embraces the natural landscape, with beautiful green spaces winding throughout the entire neighbourhood. Set along the northern edge of the city’s developed area, Sage Hill is also extremely well-supplied with various amenities, including satellite locations of some of the most popular restaurants.

Living in Sage Hill

You’ve heard the radio commercials, but what is it really like to live in Sage Hill? The answer: Beautiful! There is a great mix of home styles, with single-family style as the most popular. There are a few multi-family complexes as well as some executive homes, and you can also find some very nice townhomes. There is even a retirement residence, making this a fantastic choice for multi-generational families to live nearby their elders.

Sage Hill Recreation

This neighbourhood follows a series of coulees, which really breaks up the blocks beautifully. Nearly every street is within walking distance of green space in the form of parks, playgrounds, pathways, and natural areas. A few spots you’ll love:

  •         The Sage Hill Community Association is complete with soccer fields, baseball diamonds, and an outdoor ice rink.
  •         Sage Hill Lake and Kosar Storm Pond – A set of pathways around the lake connect with the rest of the area, offering hours of walking, running, or cycling.
  •         Sage Valley Playground, Pirate Playground, and Sage Spaceport Playground – Kids of all ages have a blast at these well-constructed playgrounds throughout the community.
  •         Nose Hill Park – A quick drive down Shaganappi Trail will take you to the iconic park, which offers plenty of parking as well as walking, biking, and off-leash dog areas.

Amenities Throughout Sage Hill

Sage Hill solves the dilemma of whether to live closer to the hustle and bustle and lose your privacy or enjoy life farther out with fewer great amenities – it has the best of both! Major shopping areas that are close to the area include Sage Hill Quarter, Sage Hill Crossing, Creekside Shopping Centre, and Beacon Hill.


Groceries, home goods, and even a bakery make running errands a breeze. Each shopping area offers its own mix of retailers, like Walmart, Calgary Co-op, London Drugs, Shoppers Drug Mart, and even a bulk barn.


The selection of eateries in Sage Hill really shines. There are the requisite fast food and coffee shop chains, but there are also unique restaurants in a huge variety of styles. Local favorites include Leopold’s Tavern, Bow Tie Pizza, and D Spot Desserts.


Medical, dental, veterinary, banking, childcare, hair, and nails; you name it, and you will find it here. There’s a public library, and of course plenty of fitness and wellness options as well. Between Sage Hill Quarter and Sage Hill Crossing, you really do have everything you’ll need without leaving home.


Sage Hill is still a new and growing area, and as such doesn’t have its own school district yet. That said, the neighbouring areas offer a vast array of public, Christian, and Catholic schools accessible in less than a 10-minute drive. The Designated public school for Sage Hill includes Hawkwood School Elementary (K-6), F.E. Osborne School (6-9) Junior High, James Fowler High School (10-12). The designated Catholic schools for Sage Hill Include Msgr. Anderson, Blessed Marie-Rose, Notre Dame High School, or St. Francis High School 

Getting Around Calgary from Sage Hill

Like many of Calgary’s new communities, the benefit of living outside of the inner-city neighbourhoods is that each area is much more thoughtfully designed around the quality of life. What this also means is that being connected to the rest of the city becomes very important, and that’s something that Sage Hill has done very well.

Primary Routes

Sage Hill is in the northwest of Calgary, near the edge of the city. To one side, Symons Valley Road offers quick access to Stoney Trail, and it also connects to Big Hill Springs Road north of the city, making Airdrie equally accessible. On the west side of the community, Shaganappi Trail heads south along the west edge of Nose Hill Park and connects to Crowchild Trail, where you will find a huge shopping area and a c-train station, as well as an easy drive toward downtown. One other unique benefit to living along the northern edge of Calgary is access to 144 Ave NW, which heads west, so you can get out to Cochrane or the mountains without having to venture into the city proper!


Calgary’s bus transit network is extensive and runs year-round. Sage hill has bus stops all throughout, so catching public transit is easy to do within walking distance of any block. For downtown commuters and students, a short drive and cheap parking at the Crowfoot LRT station allow you to avoid the buses while still saving money on parking and reducing your daily drive.
