Living Rental Opportunities in Fabulous Neighborhoods of Alberta
The province of Alberta is home to many welcoming and thriving city centers, the most populous of which are Edmonton and Calgary.
Calgary boasts over 180 neighborhoods, all of which have something different to offer their residents. Young adults or those with artistic and cultural interests may choose to settle in the downtown neighborhood of Eau Claire which contains the city’s festival district.
The area features a mix of apartment and condominium living, restaurants, shopping, and a plaza. The Hounsfield Heights/Briar Hill area is great for young families due to its close proximity to Briar Hill Elementary school and it’s suburban feel amongst a high renters population. The neighbourhood is very popular for its stunning mountain views. Hillhurst is another fabulous family options as it homes numerous schools, pleasing aesthetic, and its safety factor.
Of course, for those looking for a residential area that also provides easier access to fun and entertainment, the neighborhood of Bridgeland is a good bet. Home to the Calgary Zoo, Telus World of Science, and numerous dining and shopping opportunities, Bridgeland provides a faster pace of life.
As the capital city, Edmonton is the second most populous city in the province and offers numerous neighborhoods that are ideal for living in. Sherwood is ideal for those who would prefer easy access to downtown, and is undergoing many redevelopments which ensures it will be a great place to settle for awhile. Killarny and Meadowlark Park provide great schools and parks for young families, and the Skyrattler neighborhood is quiet, safe, and picturesque.
