Stroll. Saunter. Wander. Mosey.
No matter how you choose to travel, we guarantee you’ll enjoy the ride. Whether you’re grabbing groceries or taking the kids to the playground, you’ll discover the beauty of Ambleside lies in its tranquil closeness to nature.
Mixed Use – The many faces of one neighbourhood
Ambleside is well on its way to becoming a comprehensive neighbourhood, integrating residential with office, retail and entertainment space. It has been carefully planned by professionals to reflect the principles of neighbourhood design without sacrificing utility and diversity.
Convenient Location – You’ll never need to go far
Ambleside is conveniently located near all essential services in Terwillegar and Riverbend, including shopping, schools, churches, dental/medical services and recreation facilities. The full service retail environment expands daily, and is planned to include shopping, casual and fine dining, entertainment and services. Anthony Henday Drive and Terwillegar Drive provide primary access to all of Edmonton and surrounding communities.
Transit Service – Public Transit – the way to the future
Service by Edmonton Transit during peak hours commenced in fall 2007. The Leger Transit Centre is now open and two Park n’ Rides are planned for future development.
Parks – Healthy bodies and healthy minds
Throughout the community are wandering walkways and a promenade framed by trees; an open invitation to hit the road and soak up a little sunshine. Whether you walk, jog, bike or blade, the walkways will treat you to the sights and sounds of a natural treed area, ponds, small parks and playgrounds. Long term plans include the development of sports fields and a school/park site.
Ponds – Refresh your spirit
The community features ponds that function as storm water management facilities and open park space. The ponds are transformed into natural attractions alongside walking trails, landscaping, benches and viewing areas, and are landscaped with a variety of trees, shrubs, native grasses, and emergent and aquatic plants left to grow in their natural state.
Tree-Lined Streets – Natural beauty on every street
Beautiful boulevard trees grace Ambleside streets. In addition, every Ambleside house includes a tree in the front yard, punctuating the elegant, natural beauty of the neighbourhood.
Architectural Guidelines – A master touch runs through it
Ambleside homes are exclusive to Ambleside, designed by master planners to reflect the Ambleside neighbourhood.
