Low-rise, quiet building in a neighbourhood that has it all. Community garden right across the street, three city parks within 3 blocks, and best of all: Edmonton's amazing river valley with water, mountain bike tracks, parks, bike riding, walking paths, golfing, and all sorts of outdoor activities all within a short 10 minute walk. With a community outdoor pool 1.5 blocks away, this is a remarkable summer spot.
Lots of nightlife entertainment downtown (Jasper Ave) to be had, or take a quick Uber ride down to Whyte Ave and hit any number of rooftop patios, pubs, restaurants, and clubs. You'll find the locals to be super friendly and willing to chat and offer up suggestions on things to do. Speaking of things to do, Edmonton comes alive with activities in the summer months, including food, music, and cultural festivals.
If staying in and watching a movie or a TV show is on the menu, I've got a ton of shows and movies in my catalogue for your viewing pleasure. Not to mention access to Netflix, a host of computer games, and Xbox, all on a 60" flatscreen TV!
I've lived here for 6 years so far, and I literally never want to move. This city has amazing food, a great craft beer scene, awesome people. I've been lucky enough to call this country home my whole life, and the more I travel, the greater sense of appreciation I have for home :)
