Forest Lawn Community Background

Forest-Lawn-AreaForest Lawn is located in the southeast quadrant of Calgary.  The community has a rich history dating back to 1910 when homesteaders located in the area.  The district was part of the real estate speculation of 1910-1912, and suffered a depression with the start of World War 1.  Many area homes and lots were reverted to the Municipal district of Shepard in default of taxes.  In 1935 the village of Forest Lawn was formed by amalgamating the villages of Alberta Park and Forest Lawn.  Forest Lawn was incorporated as a town in 1953, and annexed by the City of Calgary in 1961.  This long history has resulted in area homes displaying a diverse range of building styles.  Located 6 km east of downtown, Forest Lawn is close to the Bow River, the Western Irrigation District Canal, a regional park and major roadways.  There are public and separate schools in the area including Forest Lawn High School and Jack James High School.  Forest Lawn also contains the 17th avenue commercial district, known as International avenue due to the proliferation of businesses owned by various ethnic groups, notably Asian markets, shops and eateries.
