Getting Active & Outdoors in Your Community This Summer

June 19th, 2017


Staying active doesn’t always mean hitting the gym and lifting weights. Physical activity in your day to day routine is what’s most important!

At Sunset Lakes Developments, our communities are designed for optimal outdoor activity usage, so there’s no shortage of ways to boost your activity levels. Moderate to vigorous intensity aerobic (sustained cardio) activity – like brisk walking with a neighbor, is the perfect way to up your heart rate (safely!)






How long and how often?

  • Well an ideal goal every week would be 150 minutes. That may seem like a big number but if we break it down to a few minutes every day, you’ll see just how doable it is!
  • 30 minutes at least 5 days a week whether that’s a 30 minute walk with the dog after work or three 10 minute bouts throughout the day

What can I do?

  • Walking trails – walk, run, bike, blade (or cross country ski & snow shoe in winter)… your options for using the walking trails in Greely are abundant. Take your pick!
  • Help out in your community – your Owner’s Association can always use some helping hands. Whether that’s planting in the community gardens, cleaning the pool area… Reach out to your Owner’s Association Board to see how you can help! It’s a win-win for you and your community!
  • Splash! Hop in your lake or community pool to do some laps. Swimming is a great aerobic exercise that’s also easy on your joints.
  • Hit the parks – your community is loaded with recreational amenities. Hit the tennis, volleyball, or basketball courts, fitness trail (Check out the new Greely Village Park and Pebble Trail Woods Park & Fitness Trail), or playground with the kiddos.





This counts as physical activity?! I didn’t realize!

  • That’s right! Gardening, mowing the lawn, playing with the pup, taking out the recycling bins, walking up and down the stairs, the list goes on… these ALL keep you active throughout the day
  • But what’s most important – is to limit your sedentary time throughout the day. I know, I know! It can be so hard in today’s world –sitting in your car on the commute to and from work (yes, that counts, sorry!), or lounging on the couch watching the news or reading a book. It is necessary to rest but if you can limit these bouts of sitting to 20 minutes at a time it will make a big difference in the long run.

How do I do that?

  • Are you sitting at the office all day? Set yourself a timer. Every 20 (or so) minutes, get up, have a stretch, grab some water, use the washroom, say hello to a coworker… You get the idea! Breaking up the time in your chair can make a significant difference in your activity levels and heart health long-term.

So grab a friend, family member, or neighbour and get active & outdoors in your community!

 Making Greely Your HOME

June 15th, 2017

Moving into a Sunset Lakes Developments Community…



Owners Association:

One of the best parts of buying a home in a Sunset Lakes Developments Community is that you are not just creating a beautiful custom home on your private, landscaped property – you’re joining a community and building a lifestyle.

Owners associations are a key component of our communities and ensure that valuable community amenities are available to you.

Residents are truly dedicated to upholding the beauty and functionality of their community. Annually you will pay a small community fee, which goes towards maintaining the cleanliness and safety of your neighbourhood trails, pool, waterfront and all your other wonderful amenities!

Headache Free Living

A main reason the Greely lifestyle appeals to all of its homeowners is peace and quiet. After a long day of work, you will come home to the tranquility of a rural village lifestyle, only minutes away from the city, without the hustle and bustle. Finding your dream home in one of our Sunset Lakes Developments communities will bring you steps closer to living a stress-free lifestyle, with the charm of a small community and the relaxation of the outdoors.

A True Community

When you purchase a home or lot in Lakewood Trails you will have a unique opportunity to participate in creating a whole new community.  This sense of community delves deeper though – it’s a place where families grow, alongside neighbours you will one day call friends. All it takes is a friendly hello on the walking trail for some lasting friendships to begin growing! From the community events organized by each Owners Association, to the connections formed with your neighbours, your new house will soon feel like home sweet home.

Greely’s up and coming “Greely Village Centre”, will give the Greely community its long awaited downtown. With a new grocery store on its way, Greely Village Centre is expected to welcome a banka pharmacy, a restaurant, a medical clinic, professional centre, and many other conveniences. The walkability (or bike-ability!) of Greely will make exploring the village effortless with the new Greely loop connected trails. Not to mention your own neighbourhood trails, parks, and lakes! With all these amenities just moments away, you will soon discover Greely has everything you need!
