This advice is probably better for when you look into buying...

I grew up in SW Calgary in the neighbourhoods just south of the Glenmore Reservoir, it was a great area to grow up in. Far enough but not too far from downtown, everything you need is close by, nice older houses (not a fan of the new cookie-cutter neighbourhoods with like a foot of space in between each house).

Down in here, tucked between the reservoir and fish creek, you can find places to live in every price range, from the super-rich to the not-so-much:

Now if you want to be a bit closer to the action you should live closer to downtown, this just depends on your lifestyle and priorities.

I'm also a fan of the Lake Bonavista/Bonaventure area, usually more pricey but there are some cheaper options in there if you get lucky. Plus lake access.
