Located along the southwestern edge of the city, the neighbourhood of Lakeview draws homebuyers who appreciate its quiet streets and mature trees. It also has a lot to offer those who appreciate being close to nature, due to its access points to Weaselhead Flats. Created in the early 1980s and managed by the City of Calgary, this 237-acre natural area extends over the delta formed at the mouth of the Elbow River and features an extensive network of hiking trails that wind through coniferous and deciduous forests. A true wilderness experience, despite its location within the city limits, the Weaselhead is also home to a vast array of wildlife and birds.
Unique Feature: In addition to the expected wildlife sightings, Weaselhead Flats is also known for black bear sightings.
