Map of Lakeview, Calgary, AB, Canada

Nestled between Glenmore Trail Sw and Crowchild Trail SW to 37th Street SW, the western city limits at this point. The Tsuu T'ina Nation Indian reserve borders it to the west.

Residences south of 66th Avenue are part of a smaller development named Lakeview Village, which features larger, more expensive homes. East of Crowchild Trail SW with the Earl Grey Golf Course, Longridge Drive and 50th Ave SW, North Glenmore Park is often mistakenly referred to as Lakeview. Built in 1960.

History

The community was founded in 1962, six years after the city of Calgary annexed the land it was built on. The name Lakeview was chosen quite obviously for the view of Glenmore Reservoir its location afforded. Many of the original homes were built by Engineered Homes Ltd. of Calgary.

Amenities

The Calgary Rowing Club and Calgary Canoe Club are located in the south of the community, adjacent to Glenmore Reservoir. Numerous hiking and cycling trails are maintained on the shores of the Reservoir, between the Weaselhead flats and Glenmore Trail.
