The Calgary-Forest Lawn electoral district was created in the 1979 electoral re-distribution from the southern end of the Calgary-McCall electoral district. The riding was abolished in the 1993 electoral district re-distribution when it merged with part of Calgary-Millican to re-form Calgary-East.

The riding was named after the Calgary community and former town of Forest Lawn.
