Ranchers' Rise at the Okotoks Air Ranch - A Boutique Community in Okotoks

Why Ranchers’ Rise?


Detailed architectural guidelines, that include generous lot sizes and high quality materials such as Stucco, and James Hardie siding are the hallmark of Ranchers’ Rise homes. You will notice the quality and design of your future neighbours’ homes.

Growing families, or empty nesting, our residents are proud of their homes. All built by distinguished new home building companies, that are award winning and customer service driven.


A boutique community on the path less traveled: Ranchers’ Rise is located on the east side of the Okotoks Air Ranch Airport. Our community was built with premium semi-estate and move-up homes in mind. Mature trees, and wetlands surround this community, and it is located just outside of the Okotoks town centre.

Ranchers’ is perfectly situated, connected to all of Okotoks’ amenities through Milligan drive and 48 Street but far enough away to enjoy the quiet of small town life. Plus the commute to Calgary and surrounding communities is a breeze with easy access to the Highway. It’s only 25 minutes to downtown Calgary and 10 minutes to the South Health Campus.


As part of the Footshills School Division, the children in Ranchers’ Rise have the opportunity to attend the schools in Okotoks. Ranchers’ is part of the new Meadow Ridge Boundary, as such children attending public school for K to 9 will go to the new Meadow Ridge School. For high school they attend Foothills Composite High School.

Ranchers’ Rise is also home to the brand new Ecole Beausoleil Francophone School, located at the entrance to Phase 11.

Sports fields and Playgrounds

Residents in Ranchers’ Rise have their own soccer pitch and one of Okotoks’ largest baseball diamonds overlooking the wetlands. These facilities will serve as a gathering point for Okotoks amateur sports teams, and families and friends from throughout Okotoks to play and have fun.

Our community is also home to two playgrounds, conveniently located along the pathway system for all resident’s to enjoy. These playgrounds are complete and ready for children to enjoy from the moment you move to Ranchers’ Rise.

Wetlands and trails

Ranchers’ Rise is connected by 3 KM of walking paths meandering through the community and around the wet pond. It is perfect for family bike rides, your evening run or a leisurely stroll.

Whether you’re marveling at the rolling hills and mountain views, enjoying evening with your family, or spending quiet time in Beatrice Wyndham Bird Sanctuary, life here is nothing short of comforting.

Bordeaux Developments is committed to the environmental stewardship of the wetlands and works with the Town Of Okotoks while enhancing opportunities for the community to experience its natural beauty.


Are you a pilot? Have your own small plane? Or maybe just a plane enthusiast? Then this is the community for you. Orville Rowland loved aviation and was an avid pilot and crop duster, he built his own home and private airstrip here at Okotoks Air Ranch.

Much has changed since Okotoks Air Ranch was born in 1999 with the vision of a residential community with an aerodrome as its central feature. This includes significant upgrades to the airport to maintain aviation safety in 2016. Today, the airport is a central feature to Ranchers’ Rise at Okotoks Air Ranch and enjoyed by all the residents.
