Lakeview is a community in the South West area of Calgary. The community was developed in early 1960's. Conveniently located just south of Glenmore Trail in between 37th Street SW and Crowchild Trail.
The name was chosen because of the views of the Glenmore Reservoir.
Beautiful homes, and some Condo's can be found in this community. Many of the homes have views of the mountains.
The area south of 66th Avenue towards North Glenmore Park is known as Lakeview Village.
The homes in this section tend to be quite larger with bigger back yards to enjoy. Some of these properties also enjoy views of North Glenmore Park.
Many Green spaces and parks for families to enjoy throughout this community.
Naturally with North Glenmore Park directly south of the community, there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy. Canoeing, biking, nature hikes at the Weaslhead, a natural environmental park.
Many families spend the entire day at the North Glenmore Park, where they can enjoy a picnic at the many spots particularly designated for such activities, with so much to do, there is fun for everyone.
All this natural beauty within close distance to downtown. A quick drive along Crowchild Trail is all that is between this community and the city centre.
There is excellent bus service either directly to downtown or the LRT (Light Rail Transit)
Due mainly to the natural boundaries, this is a community that does not have traffic crossing the neighbourhood to get to another community.
Entrance and exit of the neighbourhood is only via 37th Street SW or Crowchild Trail SW.
