First established in mid 1980s, Douglasdale is situated in Calgary's Southeast quadrant. It is bound by the Bow River tp the West, Deerfoot Trail to the East, Quarry Park to the North and McKenzie Lake to the South. Douglasdale was developed along a gentle slope that provides picturesque views of the Rocky Mountains. The community was built around a private golf course and offers plenty of green space. The parks and pathways of the Bow River are also close by. Construction of homes in Douglasdale began in 1986 with the last homes in Douglas Glen being completed in 2001.
The community can be divided in to three distinct areas: Douglasdale, Douglasdale Estates, and Douglas Glen. A variety of homes can be found in the community ranging from smaller single family homes in Douglas Glen to estate style homes backing onto the golf course or ridge homes offering a fantastic view of the mountains and city. Most plans are two storeys, two storey splits, or bungalows.
