This year, Avenue Magazine's Best Neighbourhood title went to Arbour Lake. This community is one we work in, and have nothing but good things to say about!
Arbour Lake is Northwest Calgary's only lake community, featuring a trout stocked, 10 acre lake, mountain views, and plenty of parks and pathways. Located in the community is a state of the art YMCA, a brand new library, shopping centres and a community centre as well.
The lake brings people together for fishing derbies, stand-up paddleboard races and bouncing on the water trampoline. Groceries are available at Amaranth Whole Foods Market and Co-op in Crowfoot Crossing. There are nearby spas and yoga studios, vet clinics and pet daycares, restaurants and pubs, movie theatres and a YMCA, as well as specialized medical centres for diagnostic imaging, dentistry, chiropractic care and family medicine.
In addition to its top-10 finishes, Arbour Lake also scored above average for access to LRT (Crowfoot Station is close), property value (it had a slight 1.9 per cent increase from 2012 to 2013), proximity to parks and recreation facilities (the aforementioned lake and Y, plus Crowfoot Park), and schools (Robert Thirsk High School will open this year), and well-maintained homes. Plus, survey says, the neighbours are friendly. - Avenue Magazine
