Want to see into the future? Check out the plans for Dawson's Landing

Dawsons Landing

Small community charm. Experiential eco-park. Outdoor focused lifestyle. A regional recreational site.

If these phrases are appealing, the upcoming Dawson’s Landing neighbourhood may be in your future.

“Dawson’s Landing is an exciting project as it will be one of the first parts of our westward expansion,” explains Chestermere Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “Now that the Outline Plan has been approved, we look forward to seeing the subdivision applications soon.”

If you close your eyes (or read the Outline Plan) to imagine this community, one of the most recognizable features will be a stunning eco-park. This extensive wetland will serve as a focal point and educational opportunity to share the importance of wetland rehabilitation and preservation. A boardwalk around the wetland will serve as an access point for residents and included sheltered education sites to provide more learning on the wetland itself. You can almost hear the sounds of birds mingled with the excitement of kids spotting wildlife.   

For indoor recreation, Dawson’s Landing has a site for a future regional recreation complex. A long anticipated desire in the community, the facility can be developed in conjunction with a high school slated for the neighboring community of Chelsea. While the future construction details of such a building are still to be determined, having a site is one step closer to making it a reality.

Finally, the development will contribute to the future sustainability of the City with a mixed-use commercial site.

“As a part of a balanced approach to community development, Dawson’s Landing is a significant addition that will help enhance the quality of life for all residents in Chestermere,” says Catherine Proulx, the City’s Economic Development Manager.

At full buildout, the community will be home to more than 4500 residents who will be able to choose from a variety of housing options including single and semi-detached homes, laned townhouses, cottage cluster housing, laneless townhouses and multi-unit dwellings.

While construction won’t begin for a few years, the development south of Chestermere Boulevard and just west of Rainbow Road is one step closer to reality.
