Somerset Bridlewood Community Background

Bridlewood-logoThe communities of Somerset and Bridlewood are located in the southwest corner of Calgary.  Development in the area commenced in the 1990s.  These communities were designed to have plenty of open space for use as school sites, community recreation areas and linear parks.  A number of pathways also weave through the area.  The east side of the community of Bridlewood is a natural wetland, the Bridlewood Creek Wetland, which features almost two dozen types of birds and an abundance of flora and fauna.  Nearby Shawnessey center provides shopping opportunities for residents.  Transportation routes include Marquis of Lorne Trail and Macleod Trail. 

The Somerset and Bridlewood community association currently lacks a community center but remains active in programming.  The grand historic Shawnessey Barn is used for community dances.  The community also enjoys an excellent relationship with nearby Spruce Meadows and often makes use of their facilities for special events such as Canada Day celebrations.  The community is also closely tiers with neighboring Midnapore, where children can register for sports.  Also in Midnapore is the new South Fish Creek recreation center, which offers a variety of recreational opportunities.  Baseball diamonds and a waterpark can also be found in Somerset.  The community association also works to address issues such as traffic concerns and is a member of the South Fish Creek Transportation Action Committee.
