Lake Bonavista is Canada’s first community to be built around man-made lakes. There are two lakes in the community – Lake Bonavista is a bigger lake with access for the entire community and Lake Bonaventure is a smaller lake in the southern half of the neighbourhood. Access to Lake Bonaventure is only for residents who live right along the lake’s shores.
The SE community is bound on the northern side by Anderson Road, south side by Canyon Meadows Drive and on the western border by Macleod Trail. Two main roads run through the community – Bonaventure Drive and Acadia Drive. Directly to the east of Lake Bonavista is the community of Bonavista Downs, and Willow Park is to the north and Parkland is to the south.
