Outdoor Parks, Trails, and Green Spaces

Run, walk or stroll, through the outdoor amenities of Sunset Ridge, or sit on a bench reading and watching the sunset. Thoughtfully designed parks connect Sunset Ridge to local regional paths, and with stunning hillside views from the top of Cochrane, the community is as beautiful as it is practical. Sunset Ridge is a community designed to support your active outdoor lifestyle. From our outdoor exercise circuit, to 5+ km of scenic paths for a casual stroll or a quick run, there are lots of ways to get outside and get active. In Sunset Ridge, it’s easy to get the whole family outside – ambling trails and parks create space for kids to burn off energy and places for dogs to roam and explore. The community design features a central park, as well as many small neighbourhood parks and playgrounds, and a 6-acre freshwater pond. All are connected with regional multi-use trails dotted with gazebos and benches. Explore the green spaces in the community on our parks map at the link below.
