Bonavista Downs in South Calgary

Although the community of Bonavista Downs might seem like it would be noisy due to its close proximity to Bow Bottom Trail and Anderson Road, it’s actually just the opposite. Residents who live here are glad to enjoy peace and quiet in one of the most beautiful areas of South Calgary. It’s perfectly tucked away with Maple Ridge bordering the north and Queensland bordering the west. In fact, there are only two roads in and out of the neighbourhood, contributing to more peace, less traffic, and an overall more relaxed feel.

Bonavista Downs Real Estate Market

Development in Bonavista Downs first began in 1973, with the majority of properties being single-family homes that were built on spacious lots. These were designed with the feel of the generation they were built in, which is why so many residents today have begun renovating their properties to be more modern. However, the homes themselves are not the main attraction in the area. Instead, home buyers pref to own real estate in Bonavista Downs because it’s quaint, safe, quiet, and friendly. In fact, there are only around 400 homes in this modest community, which only adds to the charm and at any given time only a selected few homes to go up for sale.

Bonavista Downs was created to be a family-friendly neighbourhood where families could enjoy living in a small-town environment that’s not too far from the city. It still has this reputation today, with families to boast about how safe they feel living among locals who enjoy the tight-knit relationship as much as they do. Most live in single-family dwellings with two floors and three bedrooms, making the properties easy to grow with. The grounds outside the homes only make the community more beautiful with added colour and curb appeal.

Bonavista Downs Neighbourhood Amenities and Highlights

Although many residents in Bonavista Downs can find what they need in the immediate area or nearby communities, this suburb does enjoy excellent access to amenities nearby as well as many other areas. These can be accessed by the nearby Anderson Road, Deerfoot Trail, and Macleod Trail, all of which are minutes away from the borders of the neighbourhood. For those who want to travel without a vehicle, there are two city buses that come in and out of Bonavista Downs, including Route 28 Deer Run and Route 29 Queensland.

A quaint strip mall located on Lake Sylvan Drive is the spot where most Bonavista Downs residents take care of errands. This shopping area contains a music store, music lessons, a Chinese restaurant, dance studio, a chiropractor and more. Neighbouring communities are the best resources for chain grocery stores and other retail shops that offer great convenience. The Southcentre Mall is another popular shopping area with close proximity. It’s one of the largest shopping malls in all of Calgary and has almost 200 stores for shoppers to choose from.

Because Bonavista Downs has made the friendly community feel a priority, the events team takes care of organizing activities all throughout the year. These are fun for the entire family and include an annual Christmas Party, community bbq, Easter Egg hunt, bingo, and more. This association has also created a community garden and other programs to help keep neighbours connected.

Children can attend schools in Lake Bonavista, which is a neighbouring community just up the hill. These include Andrew Sibald School, Nickle School, St. Bonaventure Junior High, and many others of all ages to attend. When class is over it’s a quick walk back home where kids can hang out on playgrounds, join in a soccer game, play baseball on the baseball diamond, or enjoy a wide variety of other activities on the sports fields within the community. There are also nearby shops in the strip mall where school-age kids will often be found spending their allowance.

Bonavista Downs Recreation

Recreation plays a major role in resident’s lives, as there are plenty of sports fields outside for kids to take advantage of. There are also many playgrounds that offer ample space for kids to run and get their energy out all throughout the year. Bonavista Downs is also located close to the incredible Fish Creek Park, which is the perfect place to swim, hike, bike, fish, and picnic. Being close to Lake Bonavista as well makes it even easier to embrace warm weather in the parks. Although the name Bonavista Downs sounds similar to Lake Bonavista and they are also located next to each other, home buyers shouldn’t be mixing up the two communities with each other. The most evident difference that residents of the area need to be aware of is that people living in Bonavista Downs don’t have lake access in contrast to their neighbours residing in Lake Bonavista.
