This is a rural foothills district of some 3,600 square kilometres that has gracious family homes bordering the golf courses and wild spaces of Kananaskis Country.
M.D. Foothills surrounds the towns of Okotoks, High River, Turner Valley and Black Diamond, as well as the village of Longview and the Eden Valley First Nations Reserve.
According to the 2011 census, there are nearly 21,260 people living in the rural municipality.
Rural life in the Rocky Mountain Foothills includes wide open spaces perfect for horseback riding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and motorbikes, to name just a few activities.
It’s an area of profound natural beauty, and perfect for those looking to get away from the conveniences of city, and even town, living.
Depending on where you are in the vast district, kids would probably commute in to the closest town or village for school. M.D. Foothills’ public school district is the Foothills School Division.
