Bonavista Downs, Calgary Houses, Luxury Homes and Estates For Sale
Bonavista Downs, South Calgary Real Estate Listings and Community Info
If you want a taste of what it’s like to live in a small town, you’ll enjoy Bonavista Downs (formerly known as Lake Bonavista Downs), a south (formerly southeast) Calgary community that features a variety of single family houses and luxury homes and estates for sale. This tiny, family-friendly community is filled with bungalows and split-level housing – along with some truly spectacular 2-storey luxury homes. Bonavista Downs is bounded to the north by Anderson Road, to the east and south by Bow Bottom Trail, and to the west by the green space along Lake Wapta Rise.
It’s a Small Town Life in a Big City
It’s a small town life in this tiny neighborhood. You won’t find much for amenities available within the neighborhood itself, but if you head over to Lake Bonavista and Southcentre, you’ll find all the shopping you could ask for. The Bow Bottom Baseball Fields are to the north of the community, alongside the Maple Ridge Golf Course. Bonavista Downs residents have access to tennis courts, a skating rink, and a basketball court.
Schools serving the area include Sam Livingston School, St. Boniface School, Lake Bonavista School, and Nickle School.
While it’s a bit far to walk to a C-train station, you can hop on the #29 Queensland bus line to get to Anderson C-train station. Commuting by car? Easy access to both Deerfoot Trail and Macleod Trail let’s you get across the city with ease.
Bonavista Downs is very much the small town buried within a big city – an atmosphere that the community association is focused on cultivating. With a community this small – there’s just over 400 houses – it’s easy to see why you’ll become friends with your neighbors. While it may lack the amenities of other, larger neighborhoods, life in Bonavista Downs is a throwback to when kids played outside until the streetlights came on.
