Shawnee Slopes is a residential neighbourhood in the south-west quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is bounded to the south by James McKevitt Road, to the east by Macleod Trail, to the north by Fish Creek Provincial Park and to the west by Evergreen Street SW. The Shawnee Slopes Golf Course is developed in the center of the community. On 13 June 2011 it was announced that the Golf course will permanently close to the public, effective 2 October 2011.[3] As of 11 February 2013 city council approved the redevelopment of the golf course lands to add 1400 homes to the community.[4] This community is closely connected with the first-built, the northern section of the neighbouring Evergreen community. Shawnee and this part of Evergreen share the same Community association, while the rest of Evergreen is independent.
