Best Neighbourhoods 2018: Calgary Neighbourhoods with the Best Access to Recreational Facilities

We counted the rec facilities in every neighbourhood.


In our scoring of access to recreational facilities for our 2018 Best Neighbourhoods project, we included public leisure centres, art centres, aquatic and fitness centres, outdoor pools and rinks, athletic parks, multi-sport facilities, tennis courts and lakes. We evaluated neighbourhoods based on the facilities inside their borders and in adjacent neighbourhoods. (Private lakes were considered recreational facilities for the home community but not for adjacent neighbourhoods.)



These neighbourhoods ranked the highest for access to recreational facilities.
