Location of Cochrane Lake in Alberta

Cochrane Lake is a hamlet in southern Alberta under the jurisdiction of Rocky View County.[1] Statistics Canada also recognizes it as a designated place under the name of Cochrane Lake Subdivision.[2]

Cochrane Lake is located approximately 45 km (23 mi) northwest of the City of Calgary and 1.6 km (1.0 mi) north of the Town of Cochrane on the west side of Highway 22. Cochrane Lake gets it name from Senator Matthew Henry Cochrane who in 1881 founded the Cochrane Ranche (later known as the British-American Ranche) which was a major producer of beef.

Cochrane Lake is also currently the site of a sizeable luxury housing development, managed by property developer Monterra.[3]
