Auburn Bay: Family-Oriented Lakeside Living in Calgary

Auburn Bay Appeals to Both Parents and Children Auburn Bay Flag Calgary lake community

When I reminisce of my childhood, I often think about how great life was being only concerned about when and where I was going to get to play with my friends.

Most often we would end up at the parks and playgrounds along the perimeter of our community pond playing hide and go seek, grounders and other games of the sort.

These were moments in my childhood I would not trade for anything, memories that I am reminded of every time I drive into Auburn Bay and see the joyful families making the most out of the lake community they live in.

But those Auburn Bay kids all have it way better than I ever did! Let me tell you why…

Calgary north infill community summary happy familyA Great Place for Children

That small pond with the mediocre playground and limited park space captivated our child minds to a point where it became the place to go for play time.

Today I can only imagine what having access to Auburn Bay’s 43-acre lake, water recreation, summer programs, private beach / park and sophisticated playground would have done to elevate our imaginative fun to a whole new level.

As a youth I would have been jealous of any friends I had living in the lake community or perhaps would just attempt to visit them after school, on weekends and even holidays.

I might of even have begged my parents to move there, but then and again, they would have told me that adults lives are much more complicated than just eating, sleeping and playing and that we can’t just move on a whim.
