Auburn Bay real estate caught our eye a few years ago, and ever since, we have been hooked like the fish in our 43 acre lake! Auburn Bay is a dynamic community, and continues to expand. As new developments unfold in Auburn Bay, we can help you learn what's happening!

Found 20 blog entries about Auburn Bay.

Jaime had the idea to compile a list of the best pizza in SE Calgary (specifically Auburn Bay, Mahogany & Cranston) after so many requests on Facebook for people's personal preferences on pizza in the area. I (Rachel) fell in love with the idea immediately and asked her to write it. She stumbled briefly on the idea of quantifying the goodness of pizza and the impact it would have on small businesses, but I reminded her that this was a reality of a free market. (She's so cute and tender-hearted!)

So the list below is a result of Jaime's tireless research. She went and blended up the number of Facebook recommendations, Yelp reviews, and Trip Advisor ratings, and made this list of the best pizza places in SE Calgary. I trust her implicitly, since there is

The Vanderveen Team is so honoured to introduce our new esteemed guest blogger, Jaime Wilton. (I spelled it right this time, Jaime!) Not only is she a dear friend to the team, but she is easily the most talented and well-versed community expert I have ever encountered. She knows all; she sees all. She IS Auburn Bay.

With that, I introduce a new series of blogs from our guest blogger, Jaime. You'll know it's her because she'll sign each post with her lovely name. Now without further delay I bring you her first blog on Auburn Bay parks.

Parks and playgrounds are such an essential way to burn off energy, increase creativity, and encourage active outdoor activity for children. There is no doubt that Brookfield has succeeded in bringing Auburn Bay a

Don't be an Auburn Bay Hermit

community involvement in Auburn Bay CalgaryBeing involved in your community can mean a variety of things. It can mean anything from your quintessential TV-PTA-Home-Owners-Association-Cheerleader, right down to knowing the names of a few of your neighbours, and anything in between.

The truth is that, as we head more into an isolated community framework, our streets are more vulnerable to crime, and our kids are getting more into video games than bike rides. So this blog is all about how to go from an Auburn Bay hermit, to some level of joiner or starter, wherever your personality leads you.

Facebook

As outgoing as I am, I still find it easiest to meet people on Facebook before I meet them in person. How nice is it to sit in your yoga pants with greasy hair,

Skating in CalgaryIf you’re like me, you get a specific joy from cruising kids classes on the internet and finding the awesome and price-friendly classes for your little ones. Today, I’m going share a little Vanderveen secret: where I find all the classes in South Calgary that I use for my pile of children, and how I keep the costs down.

1)      Indus Figure Skating Club/Can Skate/Star Skate

This one is by far one of my favourites. You cannot beat the value for the dollar here. Classes range from beginning into full-fledged training for figure skaters. The drive is about 7-10 minutes from Auburn Bay depending on traffic. My daughter gets an awful lot of one-on-one coaching and costs are very low for what you get here. Click here for details.

How to throw a block partyThis year, our street had an amazing block party. Every year that we have one, it’s always an event that is remembered and it certainly contributed to the cohesiveness of the block. Perhaps I have a bias, but I think Auburn Glen Circle is one of the tightest-knit blocks in Auburn Bay.

I think one of the ways that we got as close as we are, is because every year, some generous soul has taken time out of their day to plan a great block party in the summer. This year, that generous soul was Amanda Harrison. I asked Amanda to give me some pointers on how she pulled off the great par-tay that she did this year and with her help,

I have produced the following blog which should help more blocks around town pull off the same shindig, whether you’re in

Here in Auburn Bay we have a Facebook Page called the Auburn Bay Blockwatch. I liked the page a while ago, and I’ve gotten a lot of valuable information from it. Last week, a resident in Auburn Bay posted a warning to the community that started with the titular line of this blog: “My daughter was almost taken yesterday.” She noted in her post that after her daughter got off the bus, a woman grabbed her child’s hand and just started walking away, essentially dragging this young girl with her. Eventually the little girl was able to break free and run home, but the situation was still terrifying to say the least.

The response from the community was overwhelming on the Facebook page. It started out with concerned moms in Auburn Bay, offering words of
