In the number four spot is the southeast community of Acadia, which is bounded by Macleod Trail, the Bow River, Heritage Drive and Southland Drive.

According to the Avenue Magazine survey, the top ranking qualities of Acadia are as follows:

The Alberta Tennis Centre sits on land leased from the City of Calgary in Acadia and cost $10 million to build. The province of Alberta funded $2.4 million, while Tennis Canada brought the “overhead” down by another half million. The other $7 million was funded by donations, represented on a cool tennis ball donor wall.
