Calgary's neighbourhoods

The downtown Calgary streets are lined with tall office buildings, most containing shopping areas on the basement, ground and first floors. These buildings are connected by covered pedestrian bridges known as Plus 15.

8th Avenue between 3rd St SW and 1st St SE is a pedestrian only shopping street known as Stephen Ave Walk. The C-Train, Calgary's light rail train public transport system, runs along 7th Avenue, the next parallel street north, and is free to use in this section.

East of Stampede Park, across the Bow River is Calgary's hip and cosy neighbourhood of Inglewood.

This neighbourhoods charm comes from its collection of antique stores, bookshops, friendly pubs and great eateries.

South of the railway tracks, along 17th Ave SW between Centre St and 10 St SW is Uptown. This mainly residential neighbourhood is popular for single professionals working in the city and the younger population.

Uptown has a good selection of pubs and restaurants.

4th St/Mission
Around 4th St SW further south from Uptown. 4th St/Mission is very similar to Uptown and is surrounded on 3 sides by the Elbow River. There are lots of shops, restaurants, galleries and interesting finds around this area of the city.

Over the Bow River to the north of downtown is the older district of Kensington which has a good selection of cafes, restaurants, clubs and local shops.
