Lake Chestermere

Lake Chestermere was built in the 1880s by the Canadian Pacific Railway, for irrigation of the area between Calgary and Strathmore. It is presently used mainly for recreation purposes, such as swimming, windsurfing, fishing and skating (in winter). The town of Chestermere surrounds the lake on three sides. The Trans-Canada Highway follows the northeastern shore, while the railway tracks pass by the southern shore.

The phrase "Chestermere Lake" is redundant as "mere" means lake in English. With "Chester" an English word derived from the Latin for a defensive fort and meaning "castle", this would make "Chestermere Lake" translate as "Lake Castle Lake".

Chestermere is a dynamic recreational community with all of the ambiance of a laid-back lakeside community with friendly neighborhoods, housing, schools that are close to home and stores with services minutes away.
