Life On Chestermere Lake
Remember those wonderful family vacations at the lake? The days seemed to stretch on forever, and the center of the universe was the sun-drenched dock. Entire days were spent in bathing suits and bare feet, leaping into the cool water, racing to the raft and water skiing until dusk. It's where your dad helped you reel in a trophy trout and let you drive the boat for the first time. Where you drifted off to sleep to the sound of the wind through the pines and the loons calling across the moonlit lake.
Imagine your kids experiencing such carefree days at your own lakefront hideaway in Chestermere. A beautiful lakefront community steps from the water's edge and moments from the community filled activities.

These early pioneers had visions of what irrigation would mean to the lives of the people. The building of the headwork’s of an irrigation water supply was the birth of Chestermere Lake.
