Amenities

Even in the very first stages of development, there will be amenities right in Blatchford. Then, as the neighbourhood develops, you will be able to live, shop, play, learn and work without leaving Blatchford. As a community located in the heart of the city, Blatchford is already connected to well-established neighbourhoods, shopping and dining, and is only minutes from downtown Edmonton.

Parks
& Green
Spaces

Picture yourself running out your front door straight onto a lively sidewalk down the corner to the park where you go from urban to an oasis of nature in a few strides. Or loading up your bike for a picnic with friends instead of loading up your car.

More life means connecting more to nature. With more than double the amount of green space typically devoted to a community, your opportunities to walk, picnic, cycle, sit and just hang out will be at every corner and within a few minutes walk of every home.

The west side of the stormwater ponds is designed to be more natural, giving you different scenery and options for outdoor recreation.
