2017: Best Neighbourhoods in Calgary’s Southeast

The top 10 overall neighbourhoods include the Beltline (2) and Downtown Commercial Core (9), both of which straddle the southwest and southeast. Here are five next highest ranked neighbourhoods in the southeast.

13. Lake Bonavista

It borders Fish Creek park and has two arenas and an athletic park, but the best parts of Lake Bonavista are the lakes. The two man-made lakes within the community – Lake Bonavista and Lake Bonaventure – provide year-round recreational opportunities for community members, such as skating, swimming and boating.






14. Acadia

Established in the 1960s, Acadia offers a wide variety of recreation opportunities with an ice rink and racquet sport courts at the Acadia Recreation Complex, swimming at the Acadia Aquatic and Fitness Centre and the Osten and Victor Alberta Tennis Centre offering state-of-the-art tennis courts and coaching.






15. Riverbend

Bordered to the west by the Bow River, this neighbourhood benefits from being close to Carburn Park, which features three man-made ponds and is known as a good spot for fishing. Riverbend residents are also close to Sue Higgins Park, which has the largest fenced off-leash park in the city.






17. Inglewood

This is one of the best neighbourhoods in Calgary for shopping and dining out. Add in its proximity to downtown and its good community engagement and it’s easy to see why Inglewood is so beloved, even getting a nod as Canada’s Greatest Neighbourhood according to the Canadian Institute of Planners in 2014.






21. Willow Park

Ranked second overall for  schools, Willow Park is also one of the best neighbourhoods in Calgary for shopping. It’s home to Southcentre Mall, which houses retailers such as Sporting Life and Crate and Barrel, as well as the boutique retailers of Willow Park Village, and the specialty stores along its Macleod Trail border.
