Best Neighbourhoods: Dalhousie


Recently, Avenue Magazine released their annual list of Calgary’s Best Neighbourhoods, a ranking of the top 50 communities as voted on by Calgarians. We decided to take a closer look at the communities in the top 10, and give you some insight on what to see and do there.

In the number three spot, is the northwest community of Dalhousie. This community is bounded by Crowchild Trail, John Laurie Boulevard, Shaganappi Trail and Sarcee Trail.

  • Population: 9,362
  • Density/People per sq. km: 2,837
  • Homeowners: 65%
  • Median tax assessment of residential property, 2016: $467,000

According to Avenue Magazine, the top ranking quality of Dalhousie, is the community engagement. Residents of this neighbourhood are lucky to have the Dalhousie Community Association.

The Dalhousie Community Association provides programs and services to enhance the quality of life for the people who live and work in Dalhousie. We oversee the Dalhousie community centre – a vibrant and dynamic meeting place that promotes community involvement and engagement. With approximately 9,000 residents, we are a community that is small by big city standards, but big in community spirit. [Dalhousie Community Association]
