History

The land where Lakeview now exists was annexed in the period between 1975 and 1979. It includes part of the Sutherland Moraine, a ridge that forms a local topographic high.[3] Home construction was at its peak from 1981 until 1985. Lakeview School officially opened on November 24, 1981, and St. Bernard School opened on April 2, 1982. [4] With exception of Taylor Street, McKercher and Stillwater Drives, the streets in Lakeview are named after Saskatchewan lakes.[5]
