Scarboro is an beautiful neighbourhood, full of both traditional and modern homes with well manicured lawns. The homes here are not cheap as your neighbours will be well educated, travelled and successful. Demographics in this area range, but there are a large majority of families as well as older couples - who have often watched their families grow.
There are so many things to like about Scarboro! First of all its location, the proximity to the downtown core and LRT will put its residenets at the heart of Calgary. High walkability, beautiful running trails, biking routes on the Bow River coupled with hotspots on 17th ave and gorgeous homes, make this a coveted area for many.
Some of my favourite amenities here in Scarboro is the community centre with an ice rink and nearby tobogganing hill. As well you have the Calgary Tennis Club right at your doorstep. The community also has a very popular Friday night Badminton at the Sunalta School.
The first ever multi-family building to be constructed in the iconic inner city community of Scarboro is currently under construction. This development will have have both condominiums as well townhouse options. The design and architecture will blend quite well into the neighbourhood.
In short, Scarboro is an upscale Calgary neighborhood that encompasses a handful of things that make this a great city to live in: quiet residential tree-lined streets, local parks, accessible transit, and walkability to excellent restaurants, bars, and cafes.
