Lake Bonavista
Lake Bonavista - First Of Its Kind

Located in South East Calgary, Lake Bonavista was one of a kind, being the first lake community in Canada. The Community was developed by Genstar and Keith Construction in 1968 and included 3,000 housing units, 1,400 acres of land and a 50 acre lake.

A bold financial venture, imaginative in its planning and daring in its requirements, this fresh water lake development set the standards for many more lake communities to come. In fact, after the completion of Lake Bonavista, Genstar proceeded to build 4 more lake communities in Calgary.
