Empire Park Houses For Sale - Edmonton, AB
Although Empire Park is considered a well established community, it has seen some of the more recent construction for neighborhoods in the University area. The original subdivision became incorporated to Edmonton in 1910, but much of the building did not happen until the 1960’s and 1970’s. Townhomes for sale in this area are the most prominent type of dwelling, while some duplexes and very few single family homes are also living options.
Empire Park is located to the very south east of the University district and is a spread out region that combines residential, industrial, and commercial structures. Most of the west side of the Empire Park area is taken up by the Southgate Shopping Centre and The Village at Southgate. This gives residents businesses and services for both practical and recreational needs. To the east, further shopping, including a Real Canadian Superstore can be found in the industrial section.
While paths and sidewalks along roadways allow for pedestrian access in the residential development, many inhabitants of Empire Park do rely upon vehicle transportation. Bus stops are found along the border roads and through the community, while the Southgate Station LRT is positioned directly next to the mall.
Parents will find that Empire Park is considered fairly family friendly. The McKee School and the McKee Child Care Centre are located toward the north part of this section, while L.Y. Cairns Junior and Senior High School is found in the south. Edmonton Public Schools are also an option for this sector, and the facilities are all well rated.
