Neighbouring Midnapore and Sundance share extensive amenities and lake-community identity
Lake Communities build memories that will last a life time
It’s early afternoon on a chilly Saturday in January, and in Calgary’s southeast community of Sundance, groups of teenagers gather to play a friendly game of shinny on the frozen, manmade lake that serves as a hub for the community. There is camaraderie here – an old-fashioned feeling of belonging. A fire pit takes centre stage at the upper skating rink, and an oversized sculpture of Santa Claus and his sleigh – remnants from holiday festivities – graces the promenade level of the park.
Just across Sun Valley Boulevard to the north, in neighbouring Midnapore, similar good times are unfolding. Here, young tots are sipping on hot chocolate, as mom and dad tug at their skate laces in preparation for a family glide along the shores of Lake Midnapore.
Midnapore and Sundance are two lake communities that flow into one another, sharing the same extensive amenities, from shopping centres to schools.
