Perhaps you could call this a personal passion for the owners. They have chosen to develop the property in a style that allows others to appreciate its park-like setting. The CEO, Bob Walker, and his family have built right on the property, and have planned it as a family heirloom for their children and grandchildren. In contrast to their many financially-driven ventures through the years, Bella Vista Estates is perhaps the most special for this very reason.
In addition to his ventures in the oil and gas industry, Bob has always maintained
his interests as a naturalist since becoming the first Park Naturalist
at Fish Creek Provincial Park in 1976. It is evident that he has planned
this development to preserve its natural features. The naturally treed
lots, streams, walking trails, and site features all bear his personal
stamp of conserving and enhancing the natural environment.
