“The Cliff Bunglaw-Mission Historic District is worth checking out”

Cliff Bungalow-Mission Community Association
Ranked #87 of 321 things to do in Calgary
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

This is one Calgary's special communities. On the east and south, it's bordered by the lovely Elbow River and all the great pathways connected to that. On the south is 17th Avenue, with all its fun shopping and restaurant. The core of the neighbourhood is 4th Street, and the ever-changing range of great restaurants and boutiques. But for the history buff, there's so much more, with the Rouleauville French District on the north side, the old Holy Cross Hospital, and many other historic homes and buildings. For the architecture lover, there are old, mid-century, and also wildly contemporary buildings sprinkled through the district. It's a highly liveable community, with a good gas station on the north side, and a good grocery store on the south edge. What more could a visitor or local want to see?

If all that was there was beautiful tree-lined streets with its mix of old homes and new condos, it would still be worth a visit. But Mission also has a couple of excellent green spaces nearby - to the east - Lindsay Park and to the south the Elbow River and Elbow Islands Park. Fourth Street business and entertain district bisects Mission, so there's lots of fun eateries and shops to keep you fed and stocked up. You can even gas up and have your car washed at the PetroCan station. If you can't live here, you can still visit!

Walkable from downtown, this is one of Calgary's desirable neighbourhoods. If you're lucky enough to live there, you'll know why. But like most of us, we just visit as we can. The Elbow River borders the Mission / Cliff Bungalow on the north and east, wonderful for people who love Calgary's river pathways, and strolling through Lindsay Park. For foodies, there's lots of restaurants and eateries of all kinds on 4 Street, including a Safeway. The Petro Canada gas station has a car wash, and there are many other services and shops to explore. If you're staying in Calgary, make sure to drop by!

Recently moved here -- but have been coming down almost weekly for the past couple of years. This neighbourhood has everything you could want. You can walk to restaurants, parks, running paths, shopping, health care, theatre, movies, etc.

Wonderful location by the Elbow!
