Located between Crowchild Trail and 14th Street SW, Altadore is an inner city gem. It’s easily accessible, due to its convenient proximity to Crowchild, and is rich with parks, shopping, great restaurants, and – of course – beautiful homes.
On the north side of Altadore you’ll find Marda Loop (pictured above), along with all of its independent shops, pubs, and restaurants. On the southeastern side, you’ll find River Park, Sandy Beach, and Glenmore Athletic Park – three stunning city parks with off-leash areas, picnic spots, pathways, and more.
With so much to see and do (all within walking distance!), there’s no doubt why Altadore was named the 11th best community to live in in Calgary in the 2012 Best Neighbourhoods feature in Avenue Magazine.
