#1 – Tranquil Community Feel
One of the best things about Sunnyside is the tranquil nature of its streets. Walk down any part of the community except for Memorial Drive (on its most southern boundary), and 10th street NW (on its most western boundary) and you will notice peaceful, quiet streetscapes.
This is supported by the beautiful vegetation inherent to the inner city community, which also helps to improve privacy between properties. This lush, mature vegetation grows every which way in the spring and summer, much of which consists of tall deciduous trees with leaves that create a relaxing rushing sound as they blow in the wind (and drowning out nearby sounds).
Another important part of Sunnyside’s laid-back ambiance is the easy access residents have to nearby amenities. Over 100 businesses in the Kensington Business Revitalization Zone (BRZ) support the neighbourhood, making it no rush to get to and from home as they are all less than a few minutes away.
Let’s just say that when you are so close to so many amenities, life seems to slow down and everything more sunny in Sunnyside.

#2 – Kensington & River Pathways
Living a walkable lifestyle has never been easier than when living in Sunnyside. That’s because of its close-to-everything location, including having the Kensington BRZ on its western boundary.
As mentioned above, the Kensington BRZ is home to more than 100 restaurants, shops and services. There’s also a handful of up and coming or recently completed residential projects that have introduced new bottom-floor retail spaces in the BRZ, which will add even more variety and convenience to the mix!
Meanwhile, on the south side there’s the Bow River and its network of paved pathways which connect to downtown’s west end via the 10th street bridge and to Eau Claire Market as well as Prince’s Island Park via the Peace Bridge.
There’s also the Crescent Heights plateau which is accessible via stairs and various pathways from Sunnyside’s north end. These pathways run along the top of the plateau and are used by many for recreation and leisure of all sorts.
#3 – Easy Access to Downtown
If you happen to be an urban professional who frequents the downtown area, living in a Sunnyside home or condo may be an ideal situation for you!
Walking to and from downtown is easily done when in Sunnyside and takes just a few minutes to do. There’s four different bridges that cross the river into downtown from different points in Sunnyside, making it easy no matter what part of the neighbourhood you live in.
Many Sunnyside residents love walking to work in downtown and back again at the end of the day because they beat all the crazy traffic on congested main routes such as Crowchild Trail and 14th Street. They have more time for more important things in life instead of waiting in traffic!
There’s also thousands more amenities in the downtown core that can be accessed on foot in a matter of minutes when living in Sunnyside. This provides so much more opportunity to enjoy an urban lifestyle to the fullest as the city centre is home to some of Calgary’s best restaurants, entertainment, lounges, shopping and nightlife.
