Walker Homes For Sale - Edmonton, AB
Walker is a smaller and centrally located neighborhood in the greater Ellerslie area. This development began construction as recently as 2007, shortly after the neighborhood plan was approved. Homes for sale in this community feature newer construction and larger lot sizes, with manicured landscaping that adds to the suburban atmosphere.
Although Walker features a central park space and two smaller lakes, these natural attractions are well integrated to the residential development, for a comfortable and peaceful appeal.
Roadways through Walker have well-kept sidewalks that are intended to encourage pedestrian travel. Bus stops are also dispersed across the neighborhood and along the border roads, which lets residents commute into city centre and into adjacent communities for shopping and entertainment. As with many of the sectors within Ellerslie, Walker also has developed a series of trails for walking and cycling, which allow inhabitants to traverse the area away from vehicle traffic. This makes the section quite attractive to families and outdoor enthusiasts.
Parents will find that the nearby Ellerslie Campus and Ellerslie Elementary and Junior High School are well rated for education across a number of age ranges. Ellerslie Daycare and Out of School Care is also situated to the northwest side of the community and has pre-school learning as well as supervision services for children of working parents.
Along with the local park, the Multi-Sport Tournament and Recreation Site is also found to the northeast of this residential area and has fitness facilities along with outdoor trails and tracks. Homes for sale in Walker range from single family structures to duplexes, with some townhouses also available.
