Living in Summerside Edmonton
Ellerslie Road and Summerside
Ellerslie Road is the south border of the city and what divides Summerside from the rest of Edmonton. The development of Summerside is really a story of the development of farm land on either side of Ellerslie Rd. Many people still can remember the not so distant past when they played hockey on the rink in the farm by Ellerslie Road. This was not known as Summerside back then and will be a distant memory for most people in another 10 years as development in Edmonton real estate continues to push on. Why is Summerside such an important part of the Edmonton real estate story? Well, you can see the rapid growth in the area with the South Common drawing crowds from as far away as Red Deer. The South Common is a shopping mega complex with box stores such as IKEA, Home Depot, Golftown, and Best Buy to name a few. There is also a large multi-cinema theatre and all your favourite restaurants. There has been significant commercial and residential growth since the development of the Anthony Henday South ringroad in 2008. This connects to Ellerslie rd. in so many points that Ellerslie Rd. is synonymous with the Ringroad in Edmonton South. Summerside will benefit from the better access that Ellerslie now receives as this new community is just south of it.
Summerside Lake and Community
At the heart of Summerside is the Lake. More properly known as Lake Summerside, this rapidly growing community is starting to take shape as more and more people relocate to the area. With a resident community fee for all people who live in the area, Lake Summerside is developing the resources to provide a valuable resource to everyone who lives in the vicinity. A gated community Lake that is the biggest in Edmonton and has a clubhouse, tennis courts, basketball courts, and real sand beaches. The experience of this community is one of pride and exclusiveness. All members of this Lake Summerside community are required to pay an annual fee and receive a membership card that allows access to the Lake and all it has to offer. With a stocked pond full of trout, residents at Lake Summerside can enjoy a famous Alberta pastime of fishing. The clubhouse also provides kayaks, canoes, and other water activities that can be enjoyed by the whole family on any of the beautiful sunny days that Edmonton always has. In the winter you can enjoy ice skating on the lake once it has been tested to be safe. There are ice skating lessons that are organized by the staff at the Lake Summerside clubhouse that are ready to show you how to skate. Other people make participate in a friendly game of ice hockey or even ice fishing!
Summerside home real estate developments
In Summerside you will find a variety of Edmonton home developments. From the typical single detached homes to the multifamily townhouses, apartments, and coach homes, Summerside has it all. The difference is that Summerside is a master planned community and that means when you come to Summerside you will notice that everything is very well organized and looks like it belongs. Homes in the area conform to a community landscaping plan and all new homes have this development requirement. The result is that the area is a great place to walk around in as you enjoy the beauty of all the new Edmonton homes and their unique architectures and styles. You feel like you are in a resort lake community and not really in Edmonton at all. Of course the people are all friendly and family oriented so you will enjoy getting to know your Summerside neighbours perhaps at one of the many Lake Summerside community events.
