Bordering 10 St West - 2nd St N.W and south of 16 Ave N, and trailing along Confederation Park this inner city community has gone through a big transition in the last 14 years. Popular among young families, Mt. Pleasant mirrors Marda Loop in terms of demographics and commute to downtown. There is good gastronomy in the area whether you choose to walk or drive Including 4th Spot, Block Kitchen, Earls, La Viena and one of the first Mcdonald’s in Calgary. Accessible grocery shopping with Lina’s Italian Market on Centre along with Safeway, take time out to enjoy a coffee over at Rosso Coffee or Starbucks on 16 Ave, 3 schools including King George Elementary, École de la Rose Sauvage (grades 7-12) and St Joseph Elementary & Jr. High School, and walking distance to S.A.I.T. Take advantage of Confederation Park; year round enjoyment with running, picnics, x-country skiiing along with easy access to the Confederation Park Golf Course and for our beloved ‘man’s best friend’ there are 4 dogs parks with Cambrian Heights and Rosedale along Crescent Road being the favorites.
