Acadia Calgary

Acadia Calgary has been described as "not suburbia", a quiet area with easy access to downtown, restaurants, parks, trails, the Acadia pool Calgary, shopping, transportation (including transit and Heritage LRT) and plenty of schools.

It provides community members the convenience of inner city living along with the affordability of suburbia.    And this all combines to provide great real estate value for young families and investors alike.

The area including Acadia is a mature community that features a decently sized swath of green space, with majestic oak trees nicely showcased in some parts. Acadia lies in the southeast part of Calgary, right between the Bow River to the east and McLeod Trail on its western edge. To the north is bounded by Heritage Drive and Southland Drive wraps up its southern boundary. Look for the number 164 on the map. The population of Acadia is just over ten thousand.
