A 2019 real estate survey identified Charleswood as one of the three most livable neighborhoods in Calgary. It really helps that the area is bordered by Nose Hill Park in the north and Confederation Park in the southeast. Nose Hill Park is home to a lot of deer, some coyotes, porcupines and northern pocket gophers. Confederation Park, on the other hand, is a public park that is also a National Historic Site of Canada.
This neighbourhood has a relaxing feel and not just because of its proximity to two of Canada's most popular parks. Charleswood also provides a great view of the Calgary mountains. This is definitely a place where you can find peace.
The community is also in close proximity to the University of Calgary, a public research university founded in 1944. There are also a number of popular public and private schools nearby.
