About Ranchers’ Rise

Thriving in Ranchers’ Rise, an Okotoks Community

As one of Okotoks’ newest communities, Ranchers’ Rise is a collection of homesites nestled within the Okotoks Air Ranch, Canada’s first private air park community.

Okotoks Air Ranch History

The land upon which Okotoks Air Ranch sits was first homesteaded in the late 1800s and was home to several pioneering families until William ‘Orville’ Rowland eventually acquired it in the late 1970s. Orville loved aviation and was an avid pilot and crop duster. His plans for developing the land included a 250 acre residential lake community, a golf course, a wildlife refuge and a private airport community. Orville built his own home and private airstrip and over the years this airstrip has evolved and opened to other users.

Growth of Ranchers’ Rise

Over the last 10 years, the Air Ranch itself has seen the development of beautiful luxury homes, of both airplane lovers, and those that wanted wide open space to build the home they’ve always dreamed of. Ranchers’ Rise, located on the opposite side of the airstrip, carries on the vision of this community with a variety of homes that offer wide lots, larger homes and some amenities that certainly add to the comfort and character of this community.

Currently building in phase 10 of our 14-phase development, Ranchers’ Rise continues to provide quality homes for sale in Okotoks, starting in the low $500s.
