The community of Lakeview is located in southwest Calgary along the north shore of Glenmore Reservoir. The gently rolling landscape provides glimpses of Glenmore Reservoir and the Elbow River Valley. The TsuuT'ina First Nations community is located directly west of Lakeview.

Lakeview is within Calgary which sits on Treaty 7 territory, on the lands of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot), Iyarhe Nakoda, and TsuuT’ina Nations, as well as Region 3 of the Alberta Métis Nation.
