Bonavista Community Overview

Lake Bonavista is a neighbourhood in Southeast Calgary, Alberta. It is bounded by Anderson Road to the North, Macleod Trail to the West, Canyon Meadows Drive to the South, and Bow Bottom Trail to the East. The small community of Bonavista Downs resides in the north-east corner of the neighbourhood.

Lake Bonavista was developed by the Keith Construction company and Francis James Anderson starting in 1967. It was the first community in Canada to be built around a man made lake, and served as a prototype for other Lake Communities in Calgary.

Lake Bonavista Promenade is a small commercial development within Lake Bonavista that includes both retail space and professional offices. There is also convenient access to shopping areas along Macleod Trail and in Southcentre Mall.

Fish Creek Park borders the community to the south, and provides a variety of outdoor recreation opportunities.

The Lake Bonavista Community Association (not to be confused with the homeowners association which maintains the lake) owns a community centre within the district. The community centre includes two ice rinks, a gym, and a variety of multipurpose rooms.

There is also a City of Calgary ice rink, Frank McCool Arena, within the community.

Lake Bonavista is home to the following schools:

Lake Bonavista, Public Elementary
Andrew Sibbald, Public Elementary
Sam Livingston, Public Elementary
Nickle, Public Junior High
St. Boniface, Catholic Elementary
St. Bonaventure, Catholic Junior High
