Varsity best areas of Calgary to live in

Varsity is one of the Best Areas of Calgary to Live in!

I love CalgaryVarsity is a popular northwest community in Calgary to live in, so much in fact that it has been named as the #1 Calgary Neighbourhood by Avenue Magazine in 2012!

Built in the 60’s and 70’s on a plateau north of the Bow River valley, Varsity’s location gives residents quick access to some amazing outdoor recreational areas such as Bowmont Park and also provides many of its ridge homes with fantastic views.

But that’s not all that makes this neighbourhood one of the best areas of Calgary to live in. Varsity also has ample access to a plethora of nearby amenities including Northland Mall, Market Mall and even has its own central strip mall with names like Peking Garden, Planet Organic and Matador’s Pizza & Steakhouse.

Almost all residences in Varsity are single-family homes built on wide lots. Over the years many home owners have chosen to renovate their homes to some degree, while others have completely redeveloped theirs.

Playground and Park in Varsity

One of the best things about Varsity is how much variety of amenities and services are found very close to the neighbourhood.

Not only do residents have to drive only a few minutes to reach Market Mall and Northland Mall, but they also have a very useful central shopping centre located on Shaganappi Trail with a gas station, organic grocery store, professional health building, coffee shop, restaurants, various retailers and more.

For those who might not drive, Varsity is a perfect community to live in, with several bus stops throughout the neighbourhood and various routes going every which way.

Brentwood LRT and bus station is only a 5 to 35 minute walk depending on where in Varsity, although there are bus routes that shorten this time considerably.

And let’s not forget about the tons of parks and interconnecting pathways in the community. Even a walk to the Bow River is no more than a half hour and it’s easy to get there by following the pathway system!

With all that has been said and more, it’s no wonder Varsity is one of the best areas of Calgary to live in where many families tend to stay for the long term.

Varsity Schools

Another undeniably attractive feature of Varsity is that many of its schools are located within the community itself. They are part of the relaxing, family oriented ambiance Varsity is known for!
