Lake Bonavista is a community in the South East quadrant of the city of Calgary.
It is the first man made lake community in Calgary. Development started in the mid 1960's and consists mainly of bungalow style single family homes.
There are homes built all along the two lakes in the community. Only residents of the neighbourhood, and their guests, can enjoy the lakes.
The community borders Fish Creek Park to the south, across from Canyon Meadows Drive.
Fish Creek Park is one of Canada's largest urban parks. Boundaries to the west is the T'suu Tina Nation Land and to the east is the Bow River.
So many things to enjoy at Fish Creek Park. There is simply so much beauty and tranquility and all so close to and/or connected to so many communities.
There is the Sikome Aquatic Facility, which is a man made lake opened from June to September of each year.
There are picnic sites and lots of pathways and trails to enjoy.
As well, you can find the Bow Valley Ranch Visitors Centre and the Fish Creek Environmental Learning Centre.
Neighbours to the north include Willow Park and Maple Ridge, while Bonavista Downs is to the east of the community and Canyon Meadows, divided by McLeod Trail, is to the west.
There is shopping nearby in the community of Willow Park at the Willow Park Village, but both South Centre Mall and Chinook Mall are in close proximity as well.
Bus service is available with the closest LRT (Light Rail Transit) located just a little west of the community in the neighbourhood of Canyon Meadows.
Excellent schools in the community and surrounding Neighbourhoods.
