When my parents first moved to Calgary, they bought in the suburbs. It's close to Dad's office and to the airport. As he traveled more and more frequently, they came to appreciate this proximity.
At one time, however, they had looked at a lot in Crescent Heights. It was right at the end of Centre A St NW, beside Sunnyside Bank Park, with a view of all of downtown Calgary and the river valley.
