City of Chestermere
The city of Chestermere is located within Rocky View County and is a bedroom community to many commuters working in Calgary. Originally a natural wetland and known as Chestermere Lake in the early 1900’s, it was eventually developed into a lake for irrigation to farmers.
With a population of 22,774 as of 2020, Chestermere is catching the eye of those looking for small town living and lake life while still being able to enjoy the amenities of the big city. Built around a large lake, this friendly community offers a laid back atmosphere with quiet and calm from the hustle and bustle of large city living. With endless ways to relax and unwind, it’s easy to see why this is the perfect place to end a busy work day.
Chestermere Events and Festivals
Small city life means a close-knit community that prides itself on connecting. This is why Chestermere hosts several events and festivals throughout the year including Canada Day celebrations, Easter Egg hunts for the community, a popular water festival in the summer with water sporting events, food trucks and music, as well as the Winter Lights Festival at Christmas. Block parties are also popular in neighbourhoods and a great opportunity to meet people and have some laughs.
Chestermere Recreation and Amenities
The stunning 4.8 km long Chestermere Lake is the central hub of activities with endless recreational opportunities. Summer months bring families out for picnics and BBQ’s or a fun game of soccer on the stretch of greenspaces around the lake.

For those who enjoy a rush of adrenaline, take the boat down to the boat launch for a fun afternoon of water skiing or tubing. Fishing is also popular with residents looking to spend some relaxing time at the water’s edge. In the winter residents can skate on the lake or enjoy some ice hockey.
With several parks and pathways filled with trees and singing birds, families can take kids to the playground to burn some energy, while those who enjoy an active lifestyle can walk, rollerblade or bike the winding paths through the community.
