Bayview, which was established in 1967, is on a peninsula. It is on the southern shore of Glenmore Reservoir, which is a large reservoir on Elbow River. The reservoir has two marinas and one of them is on Bayview.
Anytime you live near a body of water, there is always peace and calm. That's exactly what residents of Bayview enjoy. They are lucky enough to revel in the gorgeous views of Glenmore Reservoir every day.
The neighbourhood is a small community. It's nearest commercial centre is Glenmore Landing. While there are no schools within the neighbourhood, there are nearby institutions that serve Bayview residents: public schools Nellie McClung Elementary and John Ware Junior High, and the Catholic school St. Benedict Elementary.
