Mckenzie Lake Community Information

The high-price glorious developments within and surrounding the suburban McKenzie Lake are well known throughout Calgary. The neighborhood is held between Deerfoot Trail to the east, Stoney Trail to the south, Fish Cree Provincial Park to the west, and 130th Avenue to the north. McKenzie Lake has seen ongoing development beginning in the 1980s up until to the present. Aligned across the ridge and lake, multi-million properties occupy the land which is known for its private lake and island. This artificial lake was originally installed in the 1990s and has since brought in value sevenfold for residents and businesses alike.

With a population of approximately 14,000 residents, McKenzie Lake maintains a set permanence among its residential numbers with very few properties being used for renting. The majority of the buildings contained within McKenzie Lake are single-family detached homes that house residents that maintain median annual incomes of $100,000 and above.

Public school students in McKenzie Lake are designated to attend McKenzie Lake Elementary, Mountain Park Junior High, and Lord Beaverbrook Senior High School while Catholic school students attend Blessed Cardinal Newman Elementary and Junior High before graduating to attend Bishop O’Byrne Senior High School.

The pristine green space that populates the area – the Bow River Valley, the Marquis of Lorne Trail, and Fisk Creek Provincial Park – make this a desirable area for those looking for a suburban atmosphere that isn’t set far outside the cityscape. The pine forests, abundant gardens, sandy streets, and superb amenities make it a desirable community for many residents. McKenzie Lake offers a myriad of recreational amenities – primarily in the area of outdoor living but also in shopping and commercial opportunities.

Calgary Transit offers several bus stops throughout the community to accommodate the few residents who do not own a vehicle.

The lakeside McKenzie Lake neighborhood is an ideal living space for young families, professionals, and established seniors looking to settle down in a quaint community. The luxurious developments within and nearby have led to significant property value in the past two decades. The area is well known for its cozy feel. Whether it’s a young romance or a budding family, McKenzie Lake offers pristine properties at a premier rate.
