Happy Young Family - Douglas Homes

Living In Waterford, Chestermere With Douglas Homes


The community of Waterford is the largest neighbourhood to be approved for development in Chestermere. Our vision for this new community at Douglas Homes is to provide residents with diverse home choices that match their needs across all walks of life – whether you’re a young family with kids or you’re looking to downsize.

In it’s completion, Waterford will be home to:

  • 3,700 homes
  • 3 shopping plazas
  • 3 schools
  • 8 parks with promenades along the water

Located on the Southwest edge of Chestermere, Waterford is less than 10 minutes away from Stoney Trail by car which creates a unique balance of quiet suburban living while being close to Calgary and the amenities of a big city.

Our founder Doug Musak states that his goal with Waterford in Chestermere is to create “inclusive communities with thoughtful design that families at any stage of life can enjoy.” We offer no-condo fee quick possession townhomes and semi-detached front-garage homes with the quality that Douglas Homes is known for.

Chestermere Living

Chestermere is one of the most desirable suburban locations just outside of Calgary for its affordability, beauty, and immaculate lake living. As a recreational town, Chestermere offers plenty of family-friendly activities that draw in residents from Calgary, Airdrie, Cochrane, and surrounding areas.

Here’s why residents call Chestermere living a dream:

  • A quiet, simple life – One of the most common reasons people choose to live in Chestermere is to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. There’s less traffic, it’s a slower pace, and it’s a much more relaxed feel than the big city. There are plenty of public parks, playgrounds, retail establishments, and restaurants that make it simple to plan activities with the family. When you enter Chestermere, you feel a certain sense of security, safety, and laid-back atmosphere.
  • Plenty of outdoor activities – Chestermere Lake is a popular attraction where residents and visitors can enjoy canoeing, kayaking, fishing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, swimming, ice skating in the winter, and more. Chestermere also has a BMX and skate park, an 18 hole Lakeside Greens Golf Course, and plenty of parks, open space, and playgrounds.
  • Tight-knit community – One of Chestermere’s founding values is community with a mission to remain family-oriented and collaborative. As a tight-knit community, the town holds local events and gatherings including the annual Chestermere Water Festival in the summer and the Winter Festival to celebrate life at the lake.
