[ Calgary-Neighbourhoods ]
Arbour Lake is nestled northwest of the intersection of Nose Hill Drive and John Laurie Boulevard. The community is built around 10 acre Arbour Lake, west of Calgary's scenic Nose Hill Park. Its western vantage point gives it both good mountain and Bow Valley views. Home building in Arbour Lake began around 1991. The area has about 1,200 homes built to date, and when the community is complete will have about 3,000 homes.
There are no schools in the community yet, though a separate elementary school (at the intersection of Arbour Lake Drive and Arbour Lake Road) will be opened shortly. Separate board pupils are bused to Assumption Elementary/Junior High, and St. Francis High on Northmount Drive N.W. Public board students are bused to Dalhousie Elementary, H.D Cartwright Junior High (also in Dalhousie), and Bowness High.
Crowfoot Town Centre, off Nose Hill Drive, has a Safeway and Revy, restaurants and several auto dealers.
The community is mostly single family homes with some bungalows, with some teh smaller starter homes closer to Crowfoot Centre, and the move-up and estate homes north and east of Arbour Lake.
