Still making history.
From the early explorers and settlers to the boom-town dwellers to present day, Burke Mountain’s potential as a bustling urban centre, historic natural wonder, and family-friendly community has been recognized. The Foothills may be new, but when you think about it, it’s been over 100 years in the making.
This place of pioneers saw specially bred championship horses being raised. Sleighs riding down Galloway Street on mornings where the snow blanketed the mountain. Summer evenings when the locals would take their dogs out walking by the dykes.
Here people bonded together as they defined a new style of community – close to the mainstream but just far enough away from it all to do things in their own particular ways. It is a place of many fond memories and one where the future is still to be shaped by the new settlers who will define The Foothills.
