Forest Lawn stands proudly as one of Calgary’s oldest communities. With a rich history, this community is located in the southeast quadrant of Calgary, approximately 6 km east of downtown Calgary. This historic community enjoys proximity to the Bow River, the Western Irrigation District Canal, Elliston Park, and major roadways like Deerfoot Trail and Stoney Trail

Established in the early 1900s by homesteaders, the hamlet evolved into the vibrant community of Forest Lawn. In 1934, it was amalgamated into the villages of Albert Park and Forest Lawn, later forming the Village of Forest Lawn in 1935. Supporting its residents, the Forest Lawn Community Association was founded in 1952, with the community hall constructed around 1960, serving as a space for private events and communal gatherings.

Over the years, Forest Lawn’s population grew attracting both residents, and businesses. In December 1961, the town was annexed into the City of Calgary, further enhancing its development.

For schooling options, Forest Lawn offers institutions such as Forest Lawn Senior High School, Holy Trinity Elementary School, and Patrick Airlie Elementary School. Additionally, daycares like the Immigrant Education Society, Jump and Lead Childcare, and Smart Kids Daycare cater to working parents with young children.
