Nestled adjacent to the NCC Greenbelt, Bridlewood home buyers are able to enjoy plenty of walking and cross country trails, trees, green space, and large community parks.
Residents can participate with the neighbourhood’s soccer and baseball teams, which compete on a regular basis in the spring and summer months. Geared for children, the recreational programs are through the Bridlewood Community Association (BCA) that also supports everything from arranging community sport sponsors; communicating development information and community watch programs.
