University of Alberta Windsor Park Houses For Sale - Edmonton, AB
Windsor Park is one of the main residential areas that serves the University of Alberta campus and is located just to the west of the quad on the banks of the Saskatchewan River. This sub-division is one of the oldest in the University district, and had already begun development before it became incorporated into Edmonton. Like many of the other neighborhoods in this region, it also experienced a later construction spike in the mid 1900’s, but much of the street plan was already in place.
The modified curved grid pattern makes Windsor Park easy to navigate by foot, and the well kept roadways and sidewalks are safe for pedestrians and cyclists.
Homes for sale in Windsor Park are primarily single family dwellings with an older construction. This gives the community an older village feel, and makes it very attractive as a relaxing and peaceful place to live. Many of the lots in this section are fairly large for an urban setting and the copious use of trees and natural landscaping adds to the quaint atmosphere.
Schools in Windsor Park are well rated and can accommodate children of any age range. Along with institutes of higher learning, facilities within the community include Windsor Park School and Windsor Park Pre-school. These can be found centrally within the sector and are surrounded by park land as well as near to the community skating rink.
Residents will find shopping and services along 87th Avenue as well as on the campus grounds. Both the University Station and the Health Sciences Centre LRT stops serve the Windsor Park community, making travel a simple task.
