Anders is one of those Red Deer subdivisions that has evolved over decades.  First there was Anders or Anders Village in the mid to late 70′s.  Then not much happened until the late 80′s early 90′s with the start of Anders Victoria Park, followed by Anders Aspen Ridge and Anders on the Lake in the 2000′s.
On The Lake is a man made lake created by the developer with walking paths around the lake connected to many of the other trails and parks.  Anders on The Lake quickly became one of Red Deer’s “high end” or “luxury” neighbourhoods.  What is interesting is the use of a fountain by the developer.  Probably not a feature the City would approve again due to annual maintenance and operating costs.
There are some impressive homes with interesting architecture, finishing and features.  many of them backing on the lake and many of them designed for Empty Nester’s.
