The exclusive residential neighbourhood of Altadore, bordering Sandy Beach Park and River Park in SW Calgary, features a mix of residential houses, mostly dating back to the 1950s, but with some still standing from 1911.
The exclusive community has several recreational facilities, including parks, tennis courts, sports fields and playgrounds. Altadore was on the list of Calgary's best neighborhoods in 2010, for its proximity to Marda Loop, the River Park, Glenmore Athletic Park and several other amenities. A gentrification process is evident in Altadore, with many streets having luxury in-fill homes built within the last 8 years, especially by families and professionals.
Nestled on a plateau between Crowchild Trail and 14th Street, Altadore has several bike paths and great access to the downtown core. Some of the higher-end homes are located near the exclusive areas of Garrison Woods and Sandy Beach Park. The eclectic mix of retail, shops, restaurants and cafes in the Marda Loop business district is one of the big draws to this community. Altadore's elegant setting helps classic homes blend in with picturesque views of parks and tree-lined paths!
