The People and The Real Estate in Mcqueen
McQueen in West-Central Edmonton, Alberta is a well-established residential community that gives residents the unbeatable combination of a scenic neighborhood and quick access to the city centre and downtown. A smartly planned part of Edmonton, McQueen’s green enclaves and beautiful homes make you feel instantly at home.
The New Community of Mcqueen
McQueen is well located, with easy access to major arterial roads to make the commute to work or school convenient for residents. For those working in the Northwest Industrial District, McQueen is especially ideal.
Major entertainment options and retail are all at the doorstep here, with the beautiful North Saskatchewan River and the buzz of downtown a 5 to 10-minute drive away. Commercial development is on the periphery of the neighborhood along the major intersections, giving residents the privacy and quiet they seek without making it hard to reach stores and facilities when you need them.
When you step out of a home here, you’ll be able to enjoy walking along the broad tree-lined roads and appreciate the charming homes, some dating back half a century or more.
Your New Mcqueen Home in Edmonton
McQueen is named for Rev. David George McQueen, a long-time minister(from 1887 to 1930) of the city’s First Presbyterian Church. More than half the homes here were built in the flurry of development following the second world war, up to 1960. In recent decades, more homes have come up here, giving buyers a wide selection of properties to choose from - both old and new, single-dwelling and semi-detached homes, duplexes, row houses and apartments. Many residents have lived here for years, giving McQueen a strong sense of community.
Homes are built around the central cluster of schools and recreation sites, making it an intuitively designed location. The McQueen neighborhood is served by four schools - Archbishop MacDonald High School, Edmonton Christian West School, Edmonton Christian High School, and Edmonton Menorah Academy. The University of Alberta is just across the river from homes here. The Edmonton Public Library - Woodcroft is also in the area.
Things to do in Mcqueen
The Ribbon of Green that is the Mackinnon Ravine Park is just 5 minutes from home when you live in McQueen. Residents also find themselves drawn to the beautiful greens at Victoria Golf Course or Royal Mayfair Golf Club, for a round or two every week.
There is plenty to do outdoors when you live in the McQueen community. In summer, you could join in a game of soccer at a field nearby or go fishing. Sports arenas around the city, including near the neighborhood make it easy to catch a game with friends and family. In winter, the fun of skiing in the heart of the city at Snow Valley Ski Club is unmatched. Fat biking, snow tubing, or taking part in the 'Frozen 5k' or 'Icey 10k' at the Dead Cold Run in peak winter can be quite something!
When it comes to indulging in a little retail therapy, the go-to destination for many is the Westmount Centre. A choice of quick-service eateries and restaurants make for a complete shopping experience. Home Depot is right here too, for any tinkering you might have lined up for your new home. The biggest mall in North America - West Edmonton Mall - is just 10 minutes away, should you feel the need for more choice. For a taste of the bohemian side of the city, Whyte Avenue and Old Strathcona are just the tickets! Chances are you’ll discover some live music or outdoor art on display as you walk the streets between the historic buildings that house some amazing indie boutiques. Across Yellowhead Highway to the north is 124 Street, another vibrant destination, known for its artisan boutiques and independent restaurants.
