If you were going to pick an area to live based on just the name, Silver Berry might be the one you would choose.  

  • Silver Berry is almost as lovely as its name and it’s a relatively new neighbourhood.   It’s located east of Mill Woods between 17th Street and 34th Street.  The area was used for farming prior to urban development. The bordering Mill Creek ravine was wisely left in its natural state.

 

  • Like many newer neighbourhoods, Silver Berry is home to a younger population.  Close to 90% of the residents are under the age of 60. So it makes sense that a large school is situated right in the centre of the area.  There are lots of open spaces and parks including easy access to Mill Creek to help keep the young and the young at

We're looking a well established and sought after neighbourhood to live; Meadowlark Park in Jasper Place.

  • In the latter part of the 1950’s the Town of Jasper Place developed some new neighbourhoods to compete with those in Edmonton.  By the early 1960’s the Town of Jasper place was annexed by the City of Edmonton and those beautiful new suburban communities, including Meadowlark Park became a part of Edmonton.

 

  • The average purchase price of $345 thousand is a primary reason Meadowlark Park is so popular.  Mature neighbourhoods offer a lot of built-in upside such as recreation facilities, lifestyle choices and family services.  The age demographic is almost equally split between young starter families, established families and

If you’ve lived in Edmonton for any length of time you’ve heard about the neighbourhood of Bonnie Doon. The name was taken from the Scottish for “Pleasant, rolling country side” way back in 1907. Edmonton and Strathcona were still fighting about who should get to annex it.

 

  • Early Bonnie Doon residents recognized right from the start what a beautiful part of the city they were in. They built the first houses next to Mill Creek Ravine overlooking the stunning Saskatchewan river valley. Of course, the neighbourhood has expanded south and east over the years, especially after world war two, with residential development typical of the time.

 

  • Today, Bonnie Doon has a variety of residential options for home buyers including single family

Edmonton is surrounded by a number of very nice smaller communities. In the past, living in Fort Saskatchewan or Spruce Grove meant driving into the city for almost all your shopping or recreational needs.

 

Well, things have changed quite dramatically for these “smaller” communities. One of the best examples of this transformation can be seen in Spruce Grove.

 

  • Spruce Grove’s newer neighbourhood of Harvest Ridge just might be the ultimate combination of beauty, comfort and functionality. There are baseball & soccer fields, playgrounds, walking trails and access to the amazing Atim Creek natural area all located within neighbourhood. And it’s a short walk to facilities like the Tri-Leisure centre, Fuhr Sports Park and the fantastic new

Not many neighbourhoods in Edmonton can claim to be well over a hundred years old, but Ritchie is one of them. It was named for Robert Ritchie the former Mayor of Strathcona. The historic Ritchie Mill still stands on the corner of Saskatchewan Drive and 102nd Street. 

  • Because of its long history and location, Ritchie has evolved into an area of mixed land use. Although primarily residential, it does contain a number of commercial and light industrial properties. Almost 50 per cent of all residential units in Ritchie are single-detached homes. A nice mixture of semi-detached dwellings along with low to medium-rise apartments and some row housing, account for the rest.
  • Ritchie scores a five out five in the Community Scores - Lifestyle category
