Calder Houses For Sale - Edmonton, AB
As one of the larger communities in the greater Northwest Edmonton area, Calder occupies much of the southern border of the district. It is just north of Yellowhead Trail and south of 132nd Avenue. This neighborhood is also bordered by the main railway junction for the greater Strathcona borough, and the industrial space of Yellowhead Corridor West is part of the rail line legacy that led to the expansion of Northwest Edmonton.
Although much of this land was originally part of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, the population needs during the 1950’s led to a great amount of construction for community residences. Further development has continued throughout the decades, and many older and newer homes are for sale in this well established neighborhood. The traditional grid pattern for the street lay out reflects this period of settling, and homes in the area include both single and multi-family dwellings.
Although Calder features only one centrally located park, natural lands and forestation have been used to create borders between homes and also between industrial areas and major roadways. This offers Calder a more suburban feel and gives inhabitants a greater sense of peace and privacy.
Parents in Calder will find both public and private institutions for educating children. The Calder School is situated on the park and St. Edmund Catholic School is also nearby. Calder Headstart has pre-school lessons and early learning programs, while French Dayhome can give parents daycare and after school supervision.
Bus lines run across the Calder area and connect residents with nearby shopping and recreation. Within the community, businesses along 127th Street meet practical shopping and service needs.
