Lakeview Community Overview

Lakeview is a residential community in the southwestern quadrant of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Nestled between Glenmore Trail SW and Glenmore Reservoir, its boundaries stretch from Crowchild Trail SW to 37th Street SW, the western city limits at this point. The Tsuu T'ina Nation Indian reserve borders it to the west.

Residences south of 66th Avenue are part of a smaller development named Lakeview Village, which features larger, more expensive homes.

The community was founded in 1962, six years after the city of Calgary annexed the land it was built on. The name Lakeview was chosen quite obviously for the view of Glenmore Reservoir its location afforded. Many of the original homes were built by Engineered Homes Ltd. of Calgary.

The Calgary Rowing Club and Calgary Canoe Club are located in the south of the community, adjacent to Glenmore Reservoir. Numerous hiking and cycling trails are maintained on the shores of the lake, between the Weaselhead flats and Glenmore Trail.

Lakeview School building was closed and re-opened as Calgary Girls' School (a charter school). The main schools in this community are:

  • Calgary Science School
  • Bishop Pinkham junior high
  • Jennie Elliott elementary school
  • Calgary Girls' School
