Shopping & Entertainment Options in Auburn Bay

Shopping Centers such as South Trail Crossing in the North, Shawnessy Towne Centre to the West, and High Street in Mckenzie Towne are easily accessible by the residents of the community in Auburn Bay as it is effectively situated at the intersection of Marquis of Lorne Trail and Deerfoot Trail.

Recreation & Lifestyle Opportunities in Auburn Bay

Auburn Bay Lake, a 43-acre freshwater, is the heart of this intricately-designed community in Auburn Bay. A 7,000 sqft lodge on the lakeside called Auburn House includes skating facilities, meeting rooms, and multi-function rooms. Outdoor activity venues such as open play areas, tennis courts, playgrounds, and a private beach will soon open as the community flourishes.

Thin Ice

Thin ice is hazardous since it looks like it is a hard surface but it does not hold a person’s weight. For safety purposes, everyone and/or residents of Auburn Bay with Lake Shore and Lake Access are encouraged to keep off of the lake when the signages of Thin Ice are posted. Staying off of ponds is also encouraged as it accumulates storm water runoff during Chinooks and can form thin ice as well. Additionally, residents are also reminded that dogs are not allowed to the lake. The condition also applies to boats unless ABRA has put up its green flags which means it is deemed safe and are now permitting boats in the lake. These restrictions are applicable to all points of access to the lakes.

Hockey Tournament

The 12th annual Auburn House 3 on 3 Hockey Tournament was held on January 19, 2020. Team “Spoilers” became the victor in the fierce battle with team “Jofas”.
