Are amenities and recreation important in your search for a new home? If you answered yes, you should consider Chestermere real estate. What began as a small Summer Village location has grown quickly into one of the most desirable places to live in the Calgary area. The area, an easy 25 minutes from downtown Calgary, has grown by leaps and bounds over the last 10 years. The access to recreational activities and great community make it easy to see why.
The Town of Chestermere boosts a wide variety of recreational opportunities with Chestermere Lake being at the heart of it all. Year-round activities at the 4.8 km long lake include boating, fishing, swimming, skating, and snowmobiling. In addition to the lake there are several km of biking paths with one that goes all the way to Calgary. The area also hosts over 50 parks and green-spaces that enhance the feeling of the natural openness of the area. Rounding out these outdoor amenities is an 18-hole golf course. The Chestermere Recreation Complex provides even more occasions for residents to enjoy activities. Here you’ll find two ice arenas, a curling rink, a gymnasium, meeting rooms, and a Senior’s Centre.
The community hosts a variety of festivals and activities throughout the year. Coming up soon, January 25, 2014, is Winterfest. Here you can participate in a polar bear dip, ice carving, and a pancake breakfast just to name of few of the activities. There will also be a bonfire and fireworks to end this fun-filled day. During the summer there is an annual Canada Day celebration and Water Festival. In the fall during Alberta Culture Days, Chestermere celebrates Chestermere Arts Days with live performances, art workshops, and an art market.
With the announcement of the Waterbridge community development options for housing will be greatly increased in the area. Contact Us for information on real estate listings in Chestermere or information on other great communities in the Calgary area.
