History – The land on which Arbor Creek now sits was annexed between 1980 and 1984. The majority of residential construction was done between 1996 and 2006, with a small amount of construction before this (the area first appeared on city maps in the late 1980s, branded as part of the neighboring Erindale community before being split off in the early 1990s). Roadways feature the names of prominent local personalities, many of them musicians, as well as several former mayors.
Education – No schools currenty exist in Arbor Creek. Though land was set aside for schools, the public and separate school boards decided to build schools in the adjacent Willowgrove neighbourhood.
