Varsity Revealed as No. 1 in Calgary Neighbourhood Rankings

The results of a recent survey have crowned Varsity as Calgary’s best neighbourhood. Varsity won the top spot thanks to a combination of peace and quiet, greenery, location, ease of access to transit, and range of shops.

Avenue Calgary’s recently released 2017 ranking of Calgary’s best neighbourhoods placed Beltline and Edgemont in the second and third spots, meaning they are also fantastic places to live. The variety represented by those three communities shows just how varied the ranking criteria are; Beltline is in the heart of the city, while Edgemont is further out and offers more open space.
