Calgary’s Cutest Neighbourhood

This picturesque neighbourhood has lots to offer local residents, shoppers and explorers.

Winner: Crescent Heights

What makes a neighbourhood cute? We’d venture to say it’s a mix of cottage-style heritage homes, residential streets lined with mature trees (bonus if the trees do that highly Instagrammable thing where they grow into a canopy over the street), quirky features that pop up where you’d least expect them and easy access to boutique shopping. First incorporated as a village in 1908 (and annexed by the City the following decade), Crescent Heights still has a healthy contingency of detached residences designed in its formative years. Along with the Rotary Park lawn bowls green, and a variety of unique artisan food-sellers, you’ll also find the Tigerstedt Block here, home to a host of quirky micro-retailers, a pop-up flea market and one of the coolest vintage signs in town.
