There are actually two Scarboro communities. But this is the one that's actually on the Scarboro Hills and is referred to as Scarboro proper or just Scarboro.
Scarboro is in the inner city. It is bisected by Crowchild Trail, a major expressway in western Calgary. It is bordered to the north by 12th Avenue South and to the south by 17th Avenue South. It is also situated beside another expressway, the Bow Trail. This just shows how accessible Scarboro is, whether it's your starting point or your destination.
A lot of trendy shops, cosy cafes, and excellent restaurants are lined up along 17th Avenue. There are also two schools that serve Scarboro: Sunalta Elementary and Sacred Heart Elementary.
