Area Details

Why You'd Love This Area!

At the crux of 550km of bike and pedestrian pathways throughout the City, many running along our 2 rivers

Calgary's oldest community with lots of antique shops, cafes, music venues and markets along the main street

Walking distance from downtown, yet only 1-2 hours from skiing, hiking, camping, paddling

Community Description

Walking distance to multiple coffee shops, antique stores, art galleries, restaurants and live music venues, plus many eclectic shops. High percentage of local business owners who also live in the neighborhood so there`s a strong community vibe. Join one of the weekly "haunted Inglewood" ghost tours or drop-in at the local lawn bowling club. Local full-service print shop with copiers and computer stations is one block away. Walking distance from the Calgary Zoo, Inglewood bird sanctuary, Stampede Park, and many large parks and green spaces. We`re in the car2go zone if you have a North American car2go membership. Named Canada's greatest neighborhood in 2014 (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/inglewood-named-canada-s-greatest-neighbourhood-1.2827676) Calgary is a fantastic hub for exploring the mountains (hiking, camping, skiing/snowboarding), Banff, Lake Louise, glaciers, hot springs, badlands (Drumheller), houseboating, river rafting, paragliding, hot air ballooning, and tons more. And of course there's the annual 10-day Calgary Stampede.

Additional Info

You Should Know

We're flexible on travel times. In particular we'd be interested in doing a swap during the Calgary Stampede (July) but are open to traveling throughout the year, except around holidays. We haven't had time to take many photos but hope to add some soon. We can also email you informal (read: house not totally cleaned up!) photos if interested.
