Laurel Crossing is home to multiple recreation areas, but only one is known as “the” park. Offering everything from walking trails to playground equipment, it serves as the heart of Laurel Crossing’s family community. Children will enjoy the swings and slides; parents can relax on a comfortable bench after a long day at work.

Laurel Lake #1

This beautiful lake sits serenely in the middle of Laurel Crossing’s developing neighbourhood. Not only does it offer a picturesque panorama if you want to stop and smell the roses, but it also boasts walking, jogging and biking trails around its perimeter. If you like to get your heart pumping in the morning, enjoy some exercise at Laurel Lake!

Laurel Lake #2

Another lake with natural beauty that has to be seen to be believed! This one is surrounded on all sides by friendly neighbours. Your kids will be able to play under the watchful eyes of many other parents. As a bonus, there are multiple bus routes running along this lake, so you’re in for some scenic views if you take public transportation.

Svend Hansen School

This K-9 school just opened in the fall of 2017, so everything is brand new and ready for growing minds. The athletic programs include a co-ed soccer team and a cross-country running team, and there are many clubs, events and activities to be created by students and teachers. It’s definitely a school to watch in the coming years!

Laurel Heights Retirement Residence

This community takes care of its own. Whether you’re a senior citizen yourself or just thinking about high-quality elder care for an ageing parent, the Laurel Heights Retirement Residence provides a safe, peaceful environment where the older generation can enjoy their twilight years.

Anthony Henday Drive

This highway can take you all over Edmonton, and it’s conveniently located right near Laurel Crossing. Running almost parallel to the community, it’s close enough to be useful but distant enough so that traffic noise isn’t a problem. It’s the best of both worlds!

There are many types of property that you can build or buy in Laurel Crossing and you have your choice from reputable builders such as Sterling HomesVictory HomesParkwood Master BuilderCoventry HomesPacesetter HomesDaytona Homes, and Landmark Homes. Here’s a quick list, but it’s by no means an exhaustive one!

Single-Family Home

These traditional homes are great for people who have or are expecting kids. They’re freestanding domiciles, so you’ll enjoy a certain amount of privacy from your neighbours, and they’re also very customizable. For example, you can choose to build a single-family home with a front or rear garage that’s either attached or detached.

Duplex

Duplexes are single buildings with two different homes inside. They have separate doors for their separate residents, and their yards, garages and storey levels can vary. You might enjoy a duplex if you’re a young professional who isn’t ready to buy a house but has outgrown a cramped apartment.

Townhomes

Townhomes are buildings with conjoined housing units that share walls. They’re a bit like duplexes except that townhomes can contain as many tenants as an apartment complex. They’re great starter homes for couples, families and individuals, so don’t write them off. There are some beautiful townhomes in Edmonton built by some very reputable home builders.

This was just a quick guide to the beautiful community of Laurel Crossing. You’ll have to arrange a visit to see everything for yourself, so get in your car and make it happen!
