Conveniently located on Highway 2, this bedroom community of over 1,200 people is located 25 minutes south of Red Deer and 50 minutes north of Calgary. With affordable housing and amenities of a much larger centre, the Town has benefitted from Alberta’s strong economy. Bowden’s future growth remains positive as the Town is working with a developer, to add over 200 new residential lots with several being located just off the Golf Course.
Bowden offers an enviable quality of life for all ages. An abundance of parks and new playgrounds offer families recreational opportunities right at their doorstep. Minor sports teams continue to succeed at levels far higher than most communities this size. The fair, but challenging 9 hole golf course remains very popular with both residents and visitors.
For school aged children, the Bowden Grandview Schoolcontinues to achieve high academic standards and rates very high in the Provincial rating system.
Residents have several choices of medical facilities located within 10 minutes, at the Town in Olds or Innisfail and a first class facility in Red Deer 25 minutes away.
For seniors, the Town has two senior's manors offering affordable housing. For more information, visit Parkland Foundation Housing for Seniors. With regular trips in the community van, easy access to many regional amenities is possible. To book a trip in the community van, please call Dorothy Doherty at 403-224-3380.
