Avenue Calgary just released its list of Calgary’s best neighbourhoods to live. This is the fourth consecutive year that Avenue Calgary has released a list ranking Calgary’s best neighbourhoods to live in. Arbour Lake was this years winner!
What’s different and interesting about this year’s list, is surveys were submitted by Avenue Calgary’s subscribers with them voting on the neighbourhoods they felt are the most liveable in our great, booming city.
This years Calgary top neighborhoods to live were influenced most by factors such as neighbourhood safety, proximity to parks and pathways, and whether the neighbours are friendly. The factors that the readers felt were least important in determining Calgary’s best neighbourhood were whether the houses in the neighbourhood looked similar or were uniform, whether the area was newly developed and whether the neighbourhood housed lots of large homes.
Other factors that Calgary residents considered very important when deciding on desirable neighbourhoods are the amenities that neighbourhood contains. The most important ones were great restaurants, schools, shopping and proximity to public transportation.
