In this neighbourhood, you’ll find everything from some of the city’s best coffee shops to specialty food stores to trendy clothing shops.
Altadore has a little bit of everything. The inner-city community claims the south side of the Marda Loop district — one of Calgary’s busiest outdoor shopping areas — and includes top coffee shops, laid-back pubs and specialty restaurants. The area’s vibrant culture really spreads its wings every August with Marda Gras, a New Orleans-themed festival that draws 35,000 Calgarians annually.
The eclectic nature of the neighbourhood is reflected on the streets themselves, with multi-million-dollar infills going up alongside a wide array of character homes. But it’s not all about the trendy urban experience, either. The neighbourhood borders the Elbow River and encompasses Sandy Beach Park and River Park — both excellent spots for dog-walking, picnic lunches and a leisurely weekend laze.
