When Albertans ask me about buying a property at Gleniffer Lake and what amenities are available in the area, I feel like I can go on forever. I mean, it’s a gated community with a secure entrance, so everyone in the area is a neighbour or friend. Our roads are paved and effectively cleared of snow all winter long — more than some suburban neighbourhoods can say. We have an on-site manager who is easy to get ahold of and is alway ready to help with any problem large or small. The fact is Gleniffer Lake is one of the best places to live in Alberta — it just makes sense that our community has a lot to offer.
Our Wonderful, Wonderful Lake offers nearly 5000 feet of shoreline and beaches for residents to play in the sand, craft sandcastles, or just relax and read in the sun. As a gate community, our beach is private and for residents and their guests only. The boat launch and dock, as well as individual boat slips are also located in a secured area, so you never have to worry about strangers. Our lake is extremely clean, clear of algae, and ideal for swimming, boating, and all water sports. If you enjoy diving, you’ll enjoy using the diving platform on the beach.
Not Too Close, Not Too Far.
Gleniffer Lake is an easy drive from Alberta’s major cities. Only a quick 35 minutes from Red Deer, our residents and their guests find the 75 minute trip to Calgary or the 2 hour drive from Edmonton very comfortable. And our surrounding are full of useful amenities for our residents to take advantage of. We’re mere minutes from a great little pond that Alberta Fishery stocks with Rainbows. Spruce View, a cozy town also just minute away, has a co-op grocery store, hardware store, post office, restaurants, liquor, and even a motel and fire hall. If you’re in the mood for some truly excellent ice cream, Dickson is also a very quick drive and boasts a wonderful antique Danish museum, a variety of quaint crafts and gifts, and even a friendly Lutheran Church for Sunday Mass if you’d like to attend. But don’t worry about needing to head out for every little thing, the general store at Gleniffer Lake offers Foothills Creamery Ice Cream, basic staples (milk, bread, etc), movie rentals, and assorted goodies and treats.
If you don’t feel like driving or spending a day at the lake, there are still a ton of options available to you. Our huge community centre has a licensed restaurant that backs onto the lake. And this centre comes equipped with a fitness facility, games room, showers, laundry facility, an indoor hot tub, and both an indoor and outdoor heated pool. All these facilities (except the outdoor pool) are available to residents year round. If you’ve come to Gleniffer Lake to stretch your legs and get some exercise, our challenging full length 9-hole golf course and putting greens may be calling your name. And if golf isn’t your thing, we’re sure that, between our five horseshoe pits; our six outdoor adult fitness machines; our baseball diamond; and our tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts, you’ll still find something to do to stay fit and have fun. We also have two playgrounds areas and an off leash field for you to run with your best fur-friend.
When it comes to Gleniffer Lake, I really can go on forever talking (or writing) about how great it is to live here. But don’t take my word for it! Give me a call, and come take a no obligation tour of the area. You may just find your dream home!
