Chestermere – a recreational community 15 minutes NE of Calgary
Life in Chestermere is that of a laid-back lakeside community with
friendly neighborhoods, housing, schools that are close to home and with
stores and services only minutes away.
A lake setting with the Rocky Mountains to the West makes Chestermere
parks and pathways a pleasure to explore.
But Chestermere is now sleepy town. Chestermere has vibrant and growing
business community with a climate that is optimal and opportunistic for
those interested in bringing their business to this unique lakeside
It was built in the 1880's by the Canadian Pacific Railway, for
irrigation of the area between Calgary and Strathmore. It is presently
used mainly for recreation purposes, such as swimming, windsurfing,
fishing and skating (in winter). The town of Chestermere surrounds the
lake on three sides. The Trans-Canada Highway follows the northeastern
shore, while the railway tracks pass by the southern shore.
According to Wikipedia the lake Chestermere covers a surface of 2.65
square kilometres and has a maximum depth of 7 meters and is filled via
a canal from the Bow River.
The phrase "Chestermere Lake" is actually inaccurate as "mere" means
lake in English. With "Chester" an English word derived from the Latin
for a defensive fort and meaning "Castle", this would make "Chestermere
Lake" translate as "Lake Castle Lake".
