New Family Friendly Communities Around Edmonton

One of the most important aspects of buying or building a home is where you want to live. Not only will this determine the future appreciation on your home, but it will also determine your level of happiness with your home.

The great thing about living in Edmonton is there are many great communities to choose from. Each community has different features that people enjoy. Before making a final decision, you need to decide on what amenities are important to you.

Here are some of the most sought-after communities in the area to choose from.


Ideally located in Southwest Edmonton in Windermere, Langdale was designed with old-English charm. With its cobblestone paths, relaxing benches, and a beautiful lake, you’ll feel like you’re living in a fairy tale. Get everything you need at West Edmonton Mall, Currents of Windermere, and South Edmonton Common.

Slip into your sneakers or grab your bike and head to Terwilliger Park and Southwest Community Recreation Centre. Or explore the community by taking in breathtaking sights of Langdale’s urban forest.
