The Okotoks communities of Crystal Shores, Green and Ridge are located on the north side of Okotoks, and these neighbourhoods are closest to Calgary (with easy access to Highway 2). If you buy a home in the Crystal area, you’ll get to enjoy exclusive lake privileges, a private beach, and a beach house. This is the only community within Okotoks that has lake access, so the homes tend to sell very quickly.
Some of the more desirable properties in Crystal Shores also back onto either the lake or the Crystal Ridge Golf Course. The lake is a superb location to spend a warm afternoon swimming or, during the winter season, the lake is open for ice skating and ice fishing. If you enjoy fishing, you can fish for free and the lake is fully stocked with trout (some of which are quite large). Within the private lake area, you’ll also find picnic spots, beach volleyball, fire pits, and barbecues. The firewood is supplied free of charge for your enjoyment and can be used in the provided BBQ’s or fire pits.
