Residences south of 66th Avenue are part of a smaller development named Lakeview Village, which features larger, more expensive homes. East of Crowchild Trail SW with the Earl Grey Golf Course, Longridge Drive and 50th Ave SW, North Glenmore Park is often mistakenly referred to as Lakeview. Built in 1960.
The community was founded in 1962, six years after the city of Calgary annexed the land it was built on. The name Lakeview was chosen quite obviously for the view of Glenmore Reservoir its location afforded. Many of the original homes were built by Engineered Homes Ltd. of Calgary.
The current controversy surrounding Lakeview is its opposition to a provincial highway, known as Calgary Southwest Ring Road or Alberta Highway 201, through the southwest communities of Calgary and the natural park areas.
The Calgary Rowing Club and Calgary Canoe Club are located in the south of the community, adjacent to Glenmore Reservoir. Numerous hiking and cycling trails are maintained on the shores of the Reservoir, between the Weaselhead flats and Glenmore Trail.
Residents in this community had a median household income of $64,535 in 2000, and there were 5.2% low income residents living in the neighborhood. The neighbourhood is represented in the Calgary City Council by the Ward 11 councillor.
Unusually, residents living east of 30th Street may also have membership with the neighbouring North Glenmore Park Community Association.
The main schools in this community are:
- Calgary Science School
- Bishop Pinkham Junior High School
- Jennie Elliott elementary school
- Calgary Girls' School
The closest separate school is St.James Elementary & Junior High School
