Lakeside living, all
year round

Built on the shores of Chestermere Lake, the city of Chestermere attracts those who love nature and being active. It began as a summer recreation area, where people built cabins so they could swim, boat, and fish their way through the hot months of the year. Today, those activities are still valued by Chestermere’s active population. Many of Chestermere’s residents work in Calgary, but they choose to raise their families in the natural beauty associated with lakeside living.
