Arbour Lake Community
Arbour Lake is a well-established Calgary lake community in the northwest quadrant. Founded in 1992, the community is centered on a man-made lake and is only minutes of driving from Crowfoot, one of the largest outdoor shopping centres in Calgary.
These two features alone have made living in Arbour Lake as convenient as it gets for any lake community in Calgary, with heaps of essential amenities, services and recreational opportunities very close to home. Commuting to downtown Calgary takes approximately 20 minutes, give or take depending on traffic, while ample access to other parts of Calgary are provided by Country Hills, Crowchild Trail and the nearby ring road of Stoney Trail.
All of this and more is yours as a resident of Arbour Lake without sacrificing too much of the urban lifestyle for living in such a beautiful lake community. Keep an eye open for a new mixed-use neighbourhood called "Arbour Lake West" coming soon to the area, which will feature high-end new construction condos and townhomes.
Arbour Lake Amenities
Arbour Lake in northwest Calgary is truly a remarkable neighbourhood that brings the convenience of inner city living to an exclusive suburban lake community. Built on a foothill, many homes in Arbour Lake have spectacular views of the mountains to the west; residents can escape to the Rockies with little or no traffic given their northwest location.
Crowfoot Crossing, one of Calgary's largest outdoor malls, is home to more than 240 restaurants, shops and services. From big-chain names like Sport Chek and Ciniplex Oden to small businesses that locals love, Arbour Lake residents have access to a full plethora of amenities just minutes from their front door.

Arbour Lake Parks & Recreation
Many families browse Arbour Lake homes for sale with the hopes of moving in and gaining a lifestyle where activities such as swimming, boating, canoeing, fishing and skating - all made possible by the lake - become part of daily life.
When not at the lake, the kids may find themselves at the nearby Crowfoot Library, Melcor YMCA or outdoor fields near the relatively new Robert Thirsk High School playing sports with their friends. Interconnecting pathways that meander through ravines and green spaces then back again to major amenities make it easy for the kids to meet new friends and stay connected.
Expansive ravines are found in the north part of the community, where you'll find several ridge walkout homes that provide direct access to leisure and recreation along the pathways. These ravines extend north and east into Citadel.
Lake Water Quality
As with any man-made lake community in Calgary such as Auburn Bay for example, the quality of water in the lake is of the utmost importance. The Arbour Lake Residents Association (ALRA) takes pride in keeping the lakes water as clean as possible, with weekly water samples tested at a provincial lab and results monitored by the government.
ALRA is 100% committed to maintaining the water in the lake as clean and pollution free as possible, meaning a cleaner, more toxic free water environment for you and your family to enjoy the spoils of. Also be sure to check out Mahogany on the opposite end of the city.
