Sundance is a tranquil neighbourhood in Calgary's southeast quadrant, centred around a 33-acre man-made lake, that offers a broad range of recreational facilities to its residents.
It is bordered on the north by Sun Valley Boulevard, on the east by Fish Creek Park, on the south by the Marquis of Lorne Trail, and on the west by the Macleod Trail. Both routes connect Sundance to the rest of the city easily.
The Sundance Lake is a notable element in the community and is also a recreational location. It boasts a waterfall and a range of recreational amenities as well as year-round leisure activities. During the summer, homeowners can unwind at the lake’s. The lake also offers fishing opportunities for enthusiasts.
The Sundance Lake transforms into a massive ice rink in the winter, where everyone can indulge in their favourite sports. The large bonfire that lights up in the middle of the rink adds to the appeal of the manmade ice rink.
You can also indulge in basketball and beach volleyball which are popular sports in the Sundance area.
