Chestermere has a great family bike park.
Located close to Westcreek, Rainbow Falls, The Beaches and Lakeview Landing.
The bike park is also close to Rainbow Creek Elementary and Our Lady of Wisdom and Chestermere Middle Schools.
Take a look at this video of the Chestermere’s bike park.
Chestermere lake offers many recreational opportunities for families. There is the 750 acre lake that you can sail, waterski, wake surf, wakeboard, skate, fish, swim, cross-country ski, snowmobile, kite ski, walk or just enjoy the beach. Chestermere also has walking and bike paths throughout the community. There are dance studios, martial arts schools, hockey teams, soccer teams and many other activities to become involved in. See the recreation map.
Chestermere touches the Calgary border on the eastern edge, so it is actually 20 minutes to downtown, ( longer in rush hour). As it is only minutes from Stoney Trail you can get to either end of Calgary really fast.
Being only 20 minutes from the airport is another great advantage to Chestermere’s location. If you have to travel a lot or work for one of the airlines this is not a bad commute.
Chestermere has a population of near 20,000 people as of 2016. It is a family friendly community with activities for the whole family. We do not yet have a swimming pool as a community cannot afford a pool until it reaches 20,000 people. There is however a recreation centre that has two arenas, 4 sheets of ice for curling and two large gymnasium type rooms and many meeting rooms for different groups to use. Recently the Best Western Hotel opened up and they are allowing the community to use the pool for aquatics programs.
