Bayview is a small residential neighbourhood in the south-west quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is located on a peninsula on the southern shore of Glenmore Reservoir. One of the lake's two marinas is located in this community.

Bayview was established in 1967. It is represented in the Calgary City Council by the Ward 11 councillor[1]


In the City of Calgary's 2012 municipal census, Bayview had a population of 682 living in 249 dwellings, a 5.2% increase from its 2011 population of 648.[3] With a land area of 0.4 km2 (0.15 sq mi), it had a population density of 1,710/km2 (4,400/sq mi) in 2012.[4][3]

It is one of Calgary's wealthiest communities, with residents having a median household income of $184,383 in 2000 (the highest in the city).[5] As of 2000, 15.1% of the residents were immigrants. All buildings were single-family detached homes, and none of the housing was used for renting.[2]


The community is served by Nellie McClung Elementary and John Ware Junior High public schools as well as by the St. Benedict Elementary (catholic), none of which are actually located within Bayview itself.


The Glenmore Landing strip mall shopping centre is located off the southeast corner of the community and is its closest retail operation.
