Best Neighbourhoods 2018: Calgary’s Most Walkable Neighbourhoods

These 10 neighbourhoods have the highest Walk Scores in Calgary.

For our 2018 Best Neighbourhoods project, survey respondents ranked Walk Score as the fourth-most-important characteristic of a great place to live. Walk Score measures the walkability of a neighbourhood based on the percentage of daily errands that can be accomplished on foot in the area. Walk Score is a private company based in Seattle, Washington, and it provides a complete list of both Walk Scores and Transit Scores for Calgary neighbourhoods on its website. A score of 90 to 100 means daily errands don’t require a car and a score between 70 and 89 means most errands can be done on foot.

These are the most walkable neighbourhoods in Calgary.
