This neighbourhood is located on a plateau just north of the sublime Bow River. Residents are lucky enough to have direct access to this Canadian marvel. Varsity was developed between the 1960s and 1970s.
There are three major areas in Varsity:
- Varsity Acres - the oldest part of the neighbourhood and has access to the 40th Avenue NW.
- Varsity Village - the development of this community is centered on the principles of the garden city movement.
- Varsity Estates - upscale residential area.
Varsity also has access to the major Calgarian roads with Crowchild Trail bordering it to the north and east and 32nd Avenue NW to the south.
