Which is the best lake community in Calgary? McKenzie Lake or Lake Bonavista...

Welcome to this week's battle of the communities!

This week we are taking a look at two amazing communities that both have incredible lakes and amenities. The sun was out this week and we started to get a taste of what is coming very soon in terms of a great summer. 

If you have ever been to either of these communities before, you know that they are both sought after and when you live here, your friends are sure to follow. We've seen this happen with our own clients as a group of them have all started to or already have moved into one of these two communities! I'm not going to say which one, as I want you to be the judge for yourself!

Let's meet this week's contenders:

On the east side of the Bow River, we have McKenzie Lake! It is well-regarded for its prestigious homes with private lake access, excellent shopping at hand, and access to the best of Calgary. The opportunities to live in McKenzie Lake won’t last long, so it’s best to grab the chances to live here when they arise. There are now over 14,000 people who make this their home. The community has been working hard to create a sense of belong here and that is evident in the number of people living here long term. Of those 14,000 residents, 70% have lived in McKenzie Lake for over 5 years! 

And on the West side of the Bow River we have Lake Bonavista! Lake Bonavista is a large community in Calgary’s southwest, first established and constructed in the early 1970s and 80s. Homes here feel more spread out, more relaxed with their boundaries with large amounts of room on either side of the house. Over 10,000 people live here in homes that vary in size and style. Most of the homes have a character from when they were built. They tend to be centred around the lake, which forms the basis of much of the community’s activities and events.
