Auburn Bay is a great community to raise a family. Auburn Bay is an established lake community located in SE Calgary.
The lake is a man-made lake that is stocked each year with trout for fishing in the summer and ice-fishing in the winter. It has a beautiful sand beach. It is a great lake to swim in on hot summer days and skate during the winter months. Various non-motorized boats are available at the boathouse, even paddleboards. A pathway on the lake is zambonied during the winter as soon as the ice allows, as well as designated hockey/ringette areas and a leisure 'no-sticks' ice pad. A fun tobogan zone is also created on the hill.
