McKenzie Lake Community Background
The McKenzie Lake community is located in Calgary’s southeast. It is on the east side of the Bow River, North of the Marquis of Lorne Trail and East of Fish Creek Provincial Park.
The area is named after J. McKenzie, one of the area’s first settlers. He arrived in McKenzie Lake from Montreal in 1882. With the arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1884, and the Calgary Macleod Railroad in the early 1890s many more people arrived from the east to settle in the area. Situated on good farmland, with easy road access to the city of Calgary, the McKenzie Lake area quickly became a prosperous farming region. The region was annexed by the City of Calgary in 1970. Residential development began in 1982. Today, McKenzie Lake is conveniently located near major roadways (the Deerfoot and Marquis of Lorne Trail). Several golf courses, Fish Creek Park and the popular McKenzie Lake are also in the area. The community offers excellent view of both the city and the mountains.
