With Cranston being conveniently situated with Deerfoot Trail to its east and Stoney Trail to its north, there is quick highway access to all parts of the city if you want to get out of the neighbourhood.
But you don’t need to – and you may not want to – once you see all the options this popular area has to offer. It’s nice to know that when you buy a home in Cranston, you get instant access to a multitude of nearby amenities, including South Trail Crossing on 130 Ave. SE, the newly built Seton, which is a booming commercial area that is home to many shopping and dining options as well as Mahogany, Auburn Bay, Shawnessy and more.
