IMO Cochrane is a great place to live and raise a family. We have two children, aged 9 and 5, and they have a great life here. There is plenty for them to do here. I agree that the local pool isn't the best - it's OK just not very big although I understand that there are plans for a new one to be built at some point in the future.

We have no complaints with the schools here. We are more than happy with the school our kids go to and I've only heard favourable comments about the other schools in town too.

Like so many others in Cochrane, my husband works in Calgary and finds the commute OK. I work part-time here in Cochrane.

I agree there are a lot of Brits living here but we have a good mix of both Canadian and Brit friends.

Regarding your comments about living in Canmore - we have some Canadian friends who used to live in Canmore but now live in Cochrane. Their reason for moving was largely for the sake of their kids. They said there just wasn't that many kids living there for theirs to socialise with. They said they prefer Cochrane.

Anyway, if there's anything else I can help with or you want to know anything specific, please don't hesitate to ask.

Best of luck.
Thanks so much for your comments. You have just made me even more excited for our move!
