Most people would rather spend time doing what they enjoy than staring at taillights while stuck in traffic.

That’s what makes well-connected communities so important. A shining example of this is Sage Hill.

The master-planned community nestled in northwest Calgary’s scenic Symons Valley corridor is home to the award-winning condo development Mark 101 by Shane Multi-Family.

Residents of Sage Hill are benefitting from a location that puts them near many appealing shops, services, and recreation opportunities. Here is a look at 5 things located within a 10-minute drive of the community.

For people who live in this community, the challenge isn’t finding a grocery store, it’s deciding which one to shop at.

Within Sage Hill, itself, there’s a Loblaws City Market and substantial Walmart Supercentre. One community over – in Nolan Hill – there’s a Sobeys. There’s also a Costco at nearby Beacon Hill Shopping Centre and a Coop at Creekside Shopping Centre.

People who live at the Mark 101 are a quick stroll from a variety of places to eat. At a retail complex called Sage Hill Crossing, which is a 10-minute walk away, there are options such as the Sunset Grill, Barcelos Flame Grilled Chicken, and Fritou Chicken, to name a few.

Creekside Shopping Centre adds to the menu with restaurants including barBurrito, Taiyo Japanese Restaurant, Vietnam Palace Grill and Noodle House, Tuk Tuk Thai, and a breakfast and the Bro’Kin Yolk.
Meanwhile, Beacon Hill boasts options such as Kim Lan, California Thai, and the Chopped Leaf.

Staying active is more convenient in a community like Sage Hill. Not only does the community feature long stretches of pathways and impressive parks, but it’s near an assortment of fitness centres. 9Round, F45 Training, and Oxygen Yoga and Fitness are in Sage Hill, and Orangetheory, GoodLife Fitness, and Anytime Fitness are all in close proximity.

For a full fitness experience, including a gymnasium, ice arena, aquatic centre, and climbing wall, the Shane Homes YMCA in Rocky Ridge is about 10 minutes away.  

It’s convenient to head out for a sunny afternoon on the links. The 18-hole Hamptons Golf Club and Country Hills Golf Club, featuring two championship 18-hole courses, are both well within reach of Sage Hill.

For a glass of wine or pint with friends, there are destinations around the community. State and Main is in Nolan Hill and Scotsman’s Well is a pub in Creekside, and the Tipsy Pig Pub is in the nearby community of Evanston.
