Over to the east on Highway #1, find
not too far out. It's right south of the main highway, also known as 16th Avenue, and north of Memorial Drive; it's also between 36th and 52nd Streets. Look for the yellow number 167 on this map.
Most of the houses sprang up in this area in the early 1970's. A little over 8000 people now live in Marlborough.
The Marlborough Community Association serves this neighbourhood with a 400 patron main hall, meeting rooms, BBQ, fireplace, gym, kitchen, lounge and sports playfields. People participate in bingo, seniors' programs and recreation as well as fitness opportunities.
Two features stand out for Marlborough. One is the overall real estate value. A shopper for a home will find that decent sized homes on decent sized lots can be found for low prices relative to most of the rest of the city. Here, you will find great starter family homes on quiet streets.
Getting around in Marlborough
The other feature is convenience. This is a partly suburban/partly inner city neighbourhood location where amenities are well-established and well-located.
People like the short walks to handy places like the Marlborough Calgary C-Train station, BRT, the Sunridge Mall and Marlborough Mall and other retail complexes. Driving is easy with Memorial Drive and 16th Avenue providing service to Deerfoot Trail, Stoney Trail, downtown and the airport. On the other hand, these transportation routes remain far enough away not to be on your doorstep.
And what about schools? The Calgary Board of Education provides the Marlborough and Chris Akkerman School for kids in kindergarten up to grade 6, Bob Edwards Junior High School for 7 to 9, and Forest Lawn High School after that. Similarly, the Calgary Catholic School District offers Holy Redeemer and St. Mark for K to 6, St. Martha for K to 9 and Father Lacombe High School for 10 to 12.
