The Community:
Located in Calgary's SE, this community lies south of Fish Creek Park, and on the east side of Macleod Trail. Midnapore is attractive for its community-owned artificial lake. This community is new, having been built since 1980. The more expensive homes are closer to the lake (and also pay a higher community fee). New office buildings and the extension of the south LRT are expected to reduce commuting time for residents. The community is rapidly becoming a shopper's paradise with many big box stores attracted to the 25,000 area residents in the "young family" demographic.
