Community Description

go to top ^

The community of Marda Loop is   located in the southwest quadrant of the city and consists of the neighbourhoods   of Marda Loop, Garrison Woods, Altadore, Riverpark, and South Calgary. The South   Calgary area was annexed by the city in 1907 but remained undeveloped until the   early 1950s. The area offers picturesque views of both the city and the   mountains. The South Calgary area also contains a variety of styles of housing,   reflective of it’s 50 year development. In addition, the Marda Loop area has   served as a business revitalization area, enhancing the commercial areas of the   community. South Calgary contains both a public school, which offers   Mandarin/English bilingual education.

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 community association also makes an effort to address issues of   concern to residents, and is currently developing a traffic committee to address   traffic concerns facing the rapidly developing area.
