This article is part of the 2018 list of Calgary’s Best Neighbourhoods. For the 2019 list, go here

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.
