After being annexed in 1956, the community of Lakeview was established in 1962. Located in the southwest area of Calgary, the community of Lakeview is bordered to the north by Glenmore Trail, to the south by Glenmore Park, to the east by Crowchild Trail and to the west by 37 Street. The smaller development of Lakeview Village, which is a smaller development within the Lakeview community, is located south of 66th Avenue. As such, residents of the Lakeview Village community enjoy easy access to a wide variety of recreational opportunities while also remaining relatively close to the downtown area.
For those who enjoy spending time outdoors, the Lakeview Village community offers the perfect starting point. Located next to Glenmore Park, Heritage Park and Weaselhead flats, the community provides its residents with ample opportunity to explore the great outdoors. The development, which features larger and more expensive homes than the rest of the Lakeview community, is also located near to numerous boat docks, bike paths and hiking trails.
Residents who prefer to stay closer to home will find that the Lakeview community association is also quite active. The community hall regularly hosts a variety of groups and activities, including Brownies, arts and crafts, martial arts, quilting, Bridge and more. The centre also features a pleasure skating rink and hosts a summer soccer program as well as a variety of annual events, including family fun days.
Elementary-age children whose parents are interested in homes for sale in the Lakeview Village community may attend school at Jennie Elliot or Westgate, which offers a French Immersion program, or at the Catholic schools of St. James or Holy Name.
