The requisite car culture and distance from the city’s steady hum give the neighbourhood the calm feel of a bedroom community. Although many older people remain in the area, the numerous schools and spacious homes are attracting considerable attention from families looking to grow. The Centennial area earned blue chip status in 2009, recording some of the highest solid gains in home values in Canada. Since then, prices have held steady in the neighbourhood of ranch-style bungalows and two-storey homes. Residents report that the nearby airport isn’t too noisy and even livens up the view from the top of the Centennial Park skiing hill.
