Allard Homes For Sale - Edmonton, AB
The Blackmud Creek community is one of the larger developments within the Blackmud suburb and is positioned just to the west of Calgary Trail and south of Ellerslie Drive. This section consists of homes, commercial zoning, and parts of the Blackmud Creek Ravine to create a unique living space with a very rural feel that is still close to modern amenities.
Natural environmental formations of creeks and lakes are incorporated into the street plan and this leaves many homes for sale in Allard with waterfront property and views. Homes in this area range from single family structures to townhouses and the lot sizes are fairly large for both shared and private land. While many of the properties have manicured landscaping, the overall community does use wooded lots and boundary lands to generate greater privacy for inhabitants. Parts of Blackmud Creek serve as the eastern boundary, and this natural space is the site of walking trails for outdoor recreations.
Along with safe and well-tended roadways, Allard also integrates walking and cycling trails throughout the residential area to encourage pedestrian access. Bus stops are both within the neighborhood and along border roads, so these provisions for public transportation make traveling viable to all residents.
Parents can find good education for children of most ages at the nearby Monsignor Fee Otterson School, while the Jump Start Learning Centre has pre-school classes and early childhood programs, as well as day care services.
