Falconridge and Castleridge are adjacent communities on the eastern edge of developed Calgary, east of the Calgary International Airport. They offer excellent views of both the city and the mountains. The Falconridge/Castleridge area was part of the Municipal District of Rockyview prior to its 1961 annexation to Calgary. There are numerous public and separate schools in the area, including Bishop McNally High School.
The Falconridge/Castleridge Community Association is one of the most active in Calgary. The Federation is home to the North of McKnight Community Resource Centre. This centre offers 19 social services to help area residents, including counseling, baby clinics, immigrant services, parent support and financial aid. Aside from the Resource Centre, the community centre also houses 8 playschool classes, and a before and after school care program. The Boys and Girls Club of Calgary has an office and recreational centre complete with pool and foosball tables located in the community centre. The Walsh and Auxiliary halls of the centre are home to a variety of groups, including the Boy Scouts, Kumon, Karate, prayer groups and dance groups such as Zumba and Epic. These numerous programs enable the Falconridge/Castleridge community to appeal to the wide variety of interests and needs of their diverse residents.
