This year Avenue Calgary named Varsity the best neighborhood to live in, and we totally agree! We may be biased as our office is situated right beside the golf course on Varsity Estates Drive, but keep reading and you'll see all that this amazing community has to offer!
Varsity is located perfectly between the U of C and Silver Springs so it's only a 15-minute drive to downtown but it's also a quick escape to the Mountains. You can move your family there with ease as there are 3 schools within Varsity and the University is right next-door! The community was built in the 60's-70's so it "sits in that sweet spot where you get all the best parts of being both old and new. Seniors aging in place in modest bungalows share calm streets lined with mature trees with energetic young families in new builds..." (660)
Varsity is also home to 4 shopping centres including Market Mall. You won't need to go far for groceries as there's a Safeway connected to the Mall and a Planet Organic for those families looking for a healthy option. Speaking of food, here's a great list of restaurants & cafes all within the community to check out:
- Euphoria Café
- Matador Pizza & Steak House
- Snow Palace
- Varsity Pizza & Subs
- Fresh Blend Coffee & Sandwich Bar
- Peking Garden
- Chiang Mai Thai Food
If you're a nature-lover or even just an active individual/family, then you'll love Varsity! One of the biggest pros about this lovely community is the access to parks, pathways, recreation & bike lanes. Take your pup on a walk through Howard Park, Varsity Estates Park, Varsity Acres Park or off-leash through the Bowmont Park (just next door to the community)! The kids won't run out of places to play as there are half a dozen playgrounds within Varsity. My personal favorite perks are access to the Bow River Pathway & the gorgeous Silver Springs Golf & Country Club situated in the middle of the community making the drive in & out a very scenic one! Last but not least, Varsity also has an active Community Association where you can find fun programs to participate in all year long, check out their list of programs here.
