The neighbourhood is split into two areas: Ranchlands, which has a diverse mixture of houses, townhomes and condos, and Ranchlands Estates, which is in the northeast corner and has single family homes on large lots, many of which border grassy natural areas.
The community has a few schools – Ranchlands School and St. Rita Elementary School. There are a few large parks and green spaces in Ranchlands, most notable Ranchero Park and Ranchlands Community Park. The Ranchlands Community Association has events, programming for all ages and hall rentals.
There is easy access into Ranchlands from all sides expect from Crowchild Trail. Calgary Transit also serves the community with a few buses that connect quickly to nearby LRT stations. Trains travel to the south, passing through the University of Calgary, SAIT and downtown.
