Located on the west bank of the North Saskatchewan River Valley, Laurier Heights consists primarily of single-detached homes, with some low-rise apartments and a senior citizens residence called Canterbury Court and Manor.
The more than 2,600 residents enjoy excellent access to Whitemud Drive for destinations on the south side, including: the University of Alberta, Old Strathcona, Whyte Avenue and Fort Edmonton Park. Also close to Stony Plain Road west to commercial or east 15 mins to downtown core. Straight west along 87 Avenue takes residents to West Edmonton Mall or east to Edmonton’s Valley Zoo, a family oriented petting zoo, is located in the river valley to the south east of Parkview with access to Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park and Buena Vista Park. Both parks are part of the city’s river valley park system. A footbridge, and trails located in the river valley to the east of the neighbourhood provides access to Hawrelak Park on the south side.
The extensively renovated community hall, a small neighborhood Shopping Centre, a school with French Immersion program and park site with tennis courts and spray park are all a focal point in center of the community.
Although the ‘Laurier Heights Park’ is the name of the school-park site, note the similarly named ‘Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park’ that sits on the north bank of the River (near the zoo entrance) also near Buena Vista dog park and walking trails, this is a fantastic location to visit with picnic sites, boats launch and more…
