McKernan Houses For Sale - Edmonton, AB
The McKernan community is located just to the south east of the University of Alberta area. This section of the University area is strongly residential but has some commercial development as well, and many residents find that the neighborhood is well contained for both needs and services. As one of the smaller neighborhoods, McKernan has a modified grid pattern that uses much open space and park lands to enhance the small town feel of the area.
McKernan is today popular with anyone working or attending classes at the University of Alberta as the community is a short walk from the U. McKernan was actually a lake when the region first became incorporated into the Edmonton suburbs, and the construction within this section did not go into full effect until the lake was drained in the 1940’s. While this is an established neighborhood, some of the structures are newer than in other districts. Homes for sale in McKernan are mostly single family residences, and some town homes. Lot sizes vary, although the use of natural landscaping gives the subdivision a peaceful feel.
Parents in McKernan have several options for education. Edmonton Public Schools and Edmonton Catholic Schools both provide teaching for the community, and the McKernan Elementary and Junior High School is another local option. The McKernan Child Care Society has pre-school classes and daycare services for many working parents.
While bus stops are prevalent across the sector, the McKernan-Belgravia Station LRT stop is centrally located on 114th Street. This gives commuters good access to public transportation and also lets residents travel throughout the Edmonton suburbs for shopping and entertainment.
