Marda Loop is becoming a trendy place to be. With its funky mom and pop stores, restaurants and coffee shops, it offers plenty for people to see and do.
The area, centred on 33rd and 34th Avenues southwest between Crowchild Trail and 19th Street S.W. bisects both Altadore and South Calgary.
It is experiencing significant revitalization, as are the adjacent surrounding areas, where older homes are giving way to new higher-density developments.
Named after Marc and Mada Jenkins, owners of the now demolished Marda Theatre, Marda Loop was a turnaround point for the Marda streetcar line.
