Calgary City Centre neighbourhoods

  • Downtown (bordered by 14 Street SW on the west, the Bow River on the north, the Elbow River on the east and the CPR mainline tracks on the south). Contains the second largest concentration of head offices in Canada. The region is divided into several neighbourhoods.
  • Downtown Commercial Core. Calgary's dense business area comprises the bulk of the downtown area. The commercial core is also divided into a number of districts including the Entertainment District (includes Stephen Avenue), Cultural District (includes Olympic Plaza), and the Government District.
  • Chinatown (bordered by 2 St SW on the west, the Bow River on the north, Macleod Trail on the east and 4 Ave S on the south). Canada's third largest Chinatown. It is the heart of Calgary's Asian diaspora, although much of northeast Calgary has a Pacific Rim influence. The area of about a half-dozen blocks is along Centre Street S, from 4 Ave S (on the south) to the Bow River (on the north). Calgary's Chinatown packs in a dense network of Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese and other Asian restaurants, shops, housing and cultural facilities.
  • Downtown East Village (East Village) (bordered by 3 St SE on the west, the Bow River on the north, the Elbow River on the east and the CPR mainline tracks on the south). The East Village has seen a great amount of redevelopment since the late 2000s, including several restaurants in the historic Simmons Mattress Factory building, and several new condo towers, with several more under construction. The neighbourhood is host to the National Music Centre of Canada and New Central Library.
  • Downtown West End (West End) (bordered by 14 St SW on the west, the Bow River on the north, the 9 St SW on the east and the CPR mainline tracks on the south). The West End is a high-rise, high-density residential neighbourhood to the west of the Downtown Commercial Core.
  • Eau Claire (bordered by 9 St SW on the west, the Bow River on the north, 2 St SW on the east and 3 Ave SW on the south). A mix of riverside condominiums, shopping, restaurants, hotels, a large public plaza and urban parkland make Eau Claire one of Calgary's most popular areas. Contained within Eau Claire is the city's Festival District.
  • The Beltline and 17th Avenue. 17th Avenue SW is Calgary's première place to see and be seen. It boasts a large and eclectic variety of restaurants, unique shops, boutiques, and bars. This street is where Calgary parties, most notably becoming the "Red Mile" during the 2004 Stanley Cup ice hockey playoffs, where up to 100,000 cheering fans gathered to celebrate victories by the hometown NHL Calgary Flames. While the Beltline spans from the Stampede Grounds and Victoria Park on the east to Mount Royal on the west, the dense nightlife on 17th Avenue starts at about 2nd Street SW and goes to 15th Street SW.
  • Mission and 4th Street (Rouleauville). The Mission district was established as a French and Catholic settlement (later called Rouleauville) at the same time that Calgary was founded. Historic displays at Rouleauville Square and the Elbow River Promenade tell the story of the area. In many ways, Mission acts as an extension of 17th Avenue. Like the Beltline, it is packed full of interesting restaurants and shops. It does not share 17th Avenue's late night reputation, however, and it generally lacks the bars and nightclubs. Mission extends from 4th Street SW to 1st Street SE and from 17th Avenue SW in the north to 26th Avenue and the Elbow River in the south.
  • Mount Royal. Mount Royal is a neighbourhood south of the downtown with charming old homes on winding streets. The area houses some of Calgary's elite. It is a nice area to do a quiet stroll through, admiring old residences. Driving around the community can be challenging due to the preponderance of traffic calming measures and street closures to prevent cut-through traffic.
