The Rocky View County Glenbow Ranch ASP
The Glenbow Ranch area is a spectacular landscape. The narrow plateau south of Highway 1A provides outstanding views of the Rocky Mountains and the dramatic transition of the rolling foothills into the prairie grasslands. From the escarpment, a relatively undisturbed landscape of coulees, wetlands, and rough fescue grasses flows down terraced slopes to the Bow River. The area, situated between Calgary and Cochrane and isolated by Highway 1A, contains three small country residential communities situated on the plateau adjacent to Highway 1A. The primary land use activity in the Plan area is currently ranching.
In 2008, the Government of Alberta created Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park (Provincial Park), which operates as a working ranch and protects some, but not all, of this important landscape. This combination of landscape, the Provincial Park, and proximity to neighbouring centers provides the opportunity, and the challenge, of creating distinctive residential communities that embrace and successfully retain the natural values that are present within the Glenbow area.
