Lake Bonavista Community Background

Lake Bonavista is located in Calgary’s southeast and is bordered by Bonavista Downs to the east, Macleod Trail to the west and Anderson Road to the north. The community is just north of Fish Creek Park. Lake Bonavista is a primarily residential area, with development beginning in 1967. The area is also home to two man-made lakes, Lake Bonaventure and Lake Bonavista, which offer excellent recreation and relaxation opportunities for residents. The community is also close to Southland shopping centre as well as the Deerfoot Trail. Both public and separate schools can be found in the area.
Lake Bonavista also contains a very active community and recreation centre. The recreation centre houses two skating rinks, a gym, and a fitness studio. One of the community’s most successful initiatives is the Canskate program, which utilizes the skating rinks for lessons geared towards community youth. Soccer, hockey, basketball, yoga and fitness classes are also popular. Such programs are financed in part by the frequent bingos held at the centre. The community association also offers tennis and canoeing lessons at Lake Bonavista. Such programs allow the Lake Bonavista community to appeal to a wide variety of community interests.
