We recently stocked our lake again with these beautiful and healthy brown trout. Look at those stunning colors!

Hello Arbour Lake Residents!

‚Äč

Your Arbour Lake Staff and Board have been very busy. The early winter storm was a speed bump but hopefully we will have a great fall. We are gearing up for a fantastic winter and hope the weather cooperates! The ALRA AGM was held on September 25th at the Arbour Lake Residents Hall. There were many items discussed. Check out the AGM/SGM tab to see the slideshow presented this year!

 

We had a record amount of rain this summer. 44 days of rain recorded at Arbour Lake. This resulted in poor attendance at our beach this summer. It also caused huge algae blooms all summer. As our Lake is at the bottom of a drainage basin every time it rains the drainage gets to our lake. If you use phosphate fertilizer it reaches our lake and causes algae to bloom. PLEASE DO NOT USE PHOSPHATE FERTILIZER IF YOU LIVE NEAR THE LAKE!

 

The movie, Aladdin, on the beach was a huge success and we will do another summer movie next year. We will do another Movie Night as soon as the ice is ready. What an amazing summer! We have a new marina-style dock on the water. This enabled us to free up space so we could build another beach. We also replaced the access docks at both east lake accesses. We installed a new fountain and two new compressors for our six aerators. The credit goes to the General Manager, Craig Somers, and all staff of the lake. Great job!

 

The ALRA has many upcoming events. This year, we will be donating our proceeds from the concession and table rentals to the Arbour Lake Christmas Kids Toy Drive (to help less fortunate families in Calgary). Please join us for some unique Christmas gifts and special treats. Donations for the toy drive will also be accepted at the door. We will accept toys right up until December 15th! The Arbour Lake “Kids Christmas Party” will be held on December 7th. Due to our growing popularity, we will host a morning and an afternoon party. The cost is $15 per child. This is an event that you must preregister for. Our “Light the Night” event will be held on Friday November 29th. Please come join us for a family night of food, fun and family pictures with Santa! The Arbour Lake Residents Association is always looking for new ideas to make Arbour Lake great. If you have any ideas, want to volunteer, or are just interested in knowing information, come on down to the lake office. You can email us at info@arbourlake.com. We would love to hear from you!

The Haunted House was a huge success! 1000 people came to the haunted house. A new record!
