The southeast community of Mahogany has not only the largest man-made freshwater lake and beachfront in Calgary, but also a 5.3-hectare (13-acre) central park. The park will be bookended on one side by an urban village that will give residents a hip place to grab a java or window shop, and the lake on the other. Homes in Mahogany range from townhouses to exclusive estates on residential islands, with private lake access from all sides.
