Peaceful natural surroundings, crisp fresh air, ample recreational activities, and plenty of elbow room, these are only a few reasons why Calgary lakefront communities boast some of the most sought after real estate in the city. Residents enjoy small-town lifestyles with big city amenities, and some truly spectacular views.
Lake Bonavista & Lake Bonaventure
If attractive amenities are high up on your list, Calgary lake communities in the northeast quadrant offer plenty of creature comforts. Lake Bonavista ranks high in terms of recreation, with outdoor opportunities at Lake Bonavista, Lake Bonaventure, and Fish Creek Provincial Park. Residents here are also close to Southcentre Mall, Willow Park Village, gourmet coffee shops, and quality schools.
Chaparral Lake Homes
Chaparral is another northwest Calgary community that was built for active lifestyles. Homes sit around a 21-acre lake, popular with divers, runners, and outdoor enthusiasts alike. Chaparral home buyers can choose between panoramic views of Fish Creek Provincial Park or the Rocky Mountains. Also nearby are several golf courses including Cottonwood Golf Club and Carmmoney Golf and Country Club. Access to South Calgary Hospital, South Centre, and well established schools makes Chaparral a great place to raise a family.
Hidden in Calgary's northwest quadrant is the hidden gem of Arbour Lake. It consistently ranks as one of Calgary's best neighbourhoods, year after year, and for good reason. Arbour Lake homes are spacious with breathtaking views, and located right on nature's doorstep. Close to grocery stores, shopping, parks, medical care, and recreational facilities, Arbour Lake also delivers on quality amenities. Direct access to major travel arteries makes this Calgary lake community perfect for commuters.
Homebuyers searching for a family-friendly, lakeside community should consider Auburn Bay in Calgary's northeast quadrant. Tranquil surroundings, cheerfully colored homes, and friendly neighbours make you feel like you're living in a small town. Homes in Auburn Bay come in a range of prices and many feature sweeping views of the Calgary skyline. Auburn House, the newly renovated community center offers lots of kid-friendly programs and activities including crafting, play groups, organized sports, and fitness classes.
Lakefront living in Calgary doesn't have to cost a fortune. Affordable lake homes in Coral Springs, offer the same attractive features found in its more expensive counterparts. Aside from the boating, beach volleyball, hockey and skating at Coral Springs Lake, residents can take advantage of recreational opportunities at Don Hartman Sportsplex, hike and bike trails, baseball diamonds and soccer pitches. Day-to-day shopping can be found in neighbouring Falconridge, and at Sunridge Mall.
