A Brief History
Bordered by the Elbow River, the community of Altadore is a highly sought after neighbourhood in Calgary. In 2010 it was named one of Calgary’s Best Neighbourhoods for two reasons. The first is that Altadore is close to River Park which is one of Calgary’s best parks in the city. The second is its proximity to one of Calgary’s top outdoor shopping strips – Marda Loop.
Established in 1945, this community wasn’t developed until the early 1950s. There is a wide variety of home styles in this area due to their spaced out construction throughout the past 70 years. The area, however, has consistently attracted trendy young professionals and young famillies throughout this time. As a home builder who is well versed in building Altadore homes, we invite you to take a peek inside this community.
What Makes It Special
Its location near to some of the best rated parks in Calgary, River Park and Sandy Beach Park are two primary features of this community. Its proximity to Marda Loop makes Altadore a trendy neighbourhood and is highly sought after by many young professionals. Those who enjoy an active lifestyle can step out their front door and escape into beautiful surroundings whichever way they go.
Altadore is a part of the South Calgary Community Association which is packed with incredible amenities from an outdoor swimming pool, two skating rinks that are transformed into beach volleyball courts in the summer time, and tennis courts. Also available are sports teams for kids and teens as well as big recreational fields for multi-purpose use.
