Calmar has the welcoming and friendly small town character while being at the hub of an amazing variety of attractions within easy reach. Ten minutes from the Edmonton International Airport, without any of the noise, Calmar residents also enjoy the luxury of hassle free travel when journeying between Provinces or out of Country.
For those loving outdoors sports the close proximity of both Wizard and Pigeon Lakes are another bonus, with fishing, camping and swimming to name just a few activities. Many first class golf courses are also located in this area.
Those who prefer woodlands, natural areas and flowers can enjoy both the Clifford E. Lee Nature Sanctuary and the Devonian Botanic Gardens within easy driving distance.
The recently renamed Queen Elizabeth highway, a short ten minutes from Calmar, gives easy access to Edmonton. Visit the West Edmonton Mall for a shopping experience in the largest mall in North America. Want a completely different experience? There are many festivals throughout the year and some very interesting guided tours. What about a Ghost Tour, or alternatively, a stroll through the Muttart Conservatory for a look at ecosystems? The Valley Zoo offers a great family outing and the Royal Alberta Museum opens the doors of history. For living history take a trip to Fort Edmonton and the Cultural Ukrainian HeritageVillage.
Mountains, lakes and badlands, Alberta is a mix of all three. Jasper National park is a day trip as is the Royal Tyrrell Museum for budding paleontologists.
Industries might note the proximity of Calmar to the Nisku Industrial Park, one of the biggest in Canada, and one of the major employer bases nearby. The Edmonton International Airport is also scheduled to expand into Port Alberta, a huge incentive for any incoming industry with a potential rail link that runs parallel to Calmar’s own Industrial Park.
