    In this particular case, that hillside is part of fish creek provincial park, and is too steep to build a subdivision on anyway. But yeah, lots of people get "views" of a farmers field and act shocked then it turns into houses.

    I’m still curious when fish creek was extended past 22x… doesn’t stop these north Lethbridge communities from advertising it’s fish creek though

    Fish creek adjacent at best… looks like rotary nature park (that ends before riverstone) on the east side and LaFarge Meadow on the west side (ending at the end of blue devil) are now technically floating unattached parts of fish creek

    I love how all these but fuck nowhere suburbs have views like that. Right up until they build the next version of Silverado where your view used to be and you now get to stare at a mud pit for 20 years then a sea of siding thereafter.

    At least the people in the middle of the suburb arenít kidding themselves.
    what is wrong with mud pit? they have summer mud wrestling parties down in the south.

    Airdrie has their garage orgies, Cranston has their mud body slides.

    Looks like the park does extend south of 22x (now stoney trail) but not actually into the neighborhood where that house is.

    Dropped a pin where that house is, and sketched in the approximate location of that "park-like" hillside area.

    This is why you buy a place where there is zero chance of further residential development lol. No surprises is best because developers will figure something out and piss you off one day.

    Why would you want your view to be looking UP at something (unless it's a mountain in Canmore or something).

    There's a fair bit of certainty about the potential for additional resentatial development in my neighborhood . . . .

    I don't think anywhere is immune. Golf course? Now a condo community. FN reserve? Now a 6 lane highway.

    The real solution is to own all the land you can view. So buy a hill somewhere in the foothills, and make sure to own the whole next 10-20km. Simple and @kilramos approved.

    Looking down at things is $$$

    And yes. Own everything you want to look at is best.

    This backyard view is decent.
    Attachment 104034

    One of the better streets in Riverstone, backs onto the hill/park. Long way above the floodplain, much higher than you might think.
    Nice

    Wealth flowing from the rich downhill to the poor. Sounds like socialism so this checks out.
