Different areas in the Calgary Community

Before you search for a house that you are planning to buy, think of the kind of environment you would like for your new home - a bustling city, a laid back countryside, or quiet suburbia. Also check out the community itself, a friendly walkable neighborhood is always ideal.

If you enjoy having your own yard, being close to schools, shopping and recreation amenities then Northwest Calgary is the perfect area for you. Northwest Calgary is known for the Bow River, Nose Hill Park and suburban communities with tons of green space.  There are many well established communities in the Northwest some complete with spectacular golf courses.

Do you long to have a panoramic view of the mountains every time you wake up or before you sleep? Southeast Calgary will be the perfect place for you. It has the perfect view of the mountains and river valleys. It is popular with people who want to have a country lifestyle, live on a golf course or enjoy the view of the lakeside.

Downtown Calgary features many high rise Calgary Condos, with spectacular mountain and river views and access to numerous entertainment venues.  These condos are walking distance to fabulous shopping, restaurants and nightclubs.  The City of Calgary’s new bike lane initiative ensures that it’s easy to get around without owning a car. 

If you want an area that offers an exciting lifestyle, then the inner city communities of Mount Royal and Elbow Park located in Southwest Calgary is what you are looking for. This is where the most popular entertainment districts are located at including 17th Avenue and 4th Street.

Don’t want to stay in the inner city but don’t want to be too far away from the city? Calgary Acreages are just close enough to the city to provide convenience. Two of the most popular acreage communities are Springbank and Bearspaw. They offer peaceful living on mostly two acre parcels of land many with mountain views.
