Altadore Community Background

Altadore-CommunityAltadore is a residential neighbourhood in the inner-city portion of the southwest quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is located between 14 Street and Crowchild Trail, south of the neighbourhood of South Calgary. It is bordered by the Elbow River and the River Park to the southeast.
Altadore was named one of Calgary’s best neighbourhoods in 2010 for its proximity to River Park, one of Calgary’s best parks on the Elbow River, and Marda Loop, the largest and busiest outdoor shopping area in Calgary, and for having a vibrant party and cultural scene. The Marda Loop Business Revitalization Zone is located within the community, along 33 and 34 Avenues SW. The neighbourhood is experiencing a gentrification process with many high-end, luxury semi-detached homes built in the last ten years, favoured by trendy, young professionals and families.

The Marda Loop Communities Association

Altadore Community HallThe Marda Loop Communities Association serves the residents of South Calgary, Altadore, Garrison Woods, and River Park neighborhoods. With an ever increasing population, we represent one of the largest groups of communities in Calgary, and one of the fastest growing communities in Canada with a rich mix of cultural diversity, parks and green space, recreation facilities, and of course our one-of-a-kind shopping district, Marda Loop.

The Marda Loop   Community Association has a variety of resources available for residents. The   community’s outdoor pool, tennis courts and two skating rinks (which become   beach volleyball courts in the summer) offer recreational opportunities to   residents. Various sports teams and a play group also operate through the   community association. The Community Centre is also used by a variety of outside   groups, ranging from catering groups who make use of the centre’s commercial   kitchen, to organizations such as the miniatures club, orchid society and doll   enthusiasts.

The Association is a not-for-profit body that has proudly served the residents of our community for over forty years and is run by a group of dedicated volunteers. The scope of our work revolves around many issues in our community including development, transportation, parks and green space, plus recreational and educational programs for all ages. Our organization serves as a conduit to City Hall as the voice for our residents.
