The People and The Real Estate in Rosslyn
Living in Rosslyn in North West Edmonton, Alberta, gives residents the best of both worlds - a lovely residential enclave to retreat to every day, with the convenience of all Edmonton has to offer. From retail options to entertainment, as well as places that allow you to make the most of the great outdoors of this river valley region, owning a home here lets you enjoy all this and more. A neighborhood brimming with homes that have character, Rosslyn is justifiably popular with buyers.
The New Community of Rosslyn
Rosslyn is one of the nicest places to lay down roots. Perfectly located in the northwestern part of the city of Edmonton, you can whizz to the action of Downtown Edmonton via 97 Street, in a flash. In addition to all the greenery around homes in the neighborhood, there’s also the lovely Rosslyn Park for residents to enjoy. This vibrant city by the North Saskatchewan River is what could be called a “right-sized” city, just perfect for anyone who wants all the mod-cons that urban lifestyles come with, but without compromising on their desire to have access to open spaces and greenery.
Initially laid out in the land boom that preceded World War I, the area saw a flurry of development only decades later, leading up to the 1960-70s. A well-established community, Rosslyn offers a mix of residential and commercial spaces. Businesses have developed largely along the commercial strip on 97th street and in some sections of 134th Avenue, leaving the rest for spacious family homes.
Your New Rosslyn Home in Edmonton
Homes in Rosslyn are predominantly single-dwelling homes. There are also some beautifully planned row houses on offer, as well as a smattering of low-rise buildings and duplexes if that’s more your style. Most homes were built after the second world war in the 60s and 70s, though there have been some constructed after that as well. Unlike more cramped city apartments, these homes give a sense of space and openness that’s hard to come by these days. Buyers tend to occupy their homes, with just a fraction being rented out. As a homeowner here, you’ll get the chance to make lifelong relationships with your neighbors who are long-time residents of the area.
The Scott Robertson Elementary School and Major General Griesback Elementary School, as well as Rosslyn Junior High School and Edmonton Bible Heritage Christian School, serve the neighborhood and its surroundings. There are plenty of great schools across other parts of Edmonton for younger and older children as well. There’s no dearth of open areas and green spaces in this city and Rosslyn is no exception, making it a haven for families and their pets. Residents find plenty of opportunities to head out on walking trails, go fishing on the river, or even go cross-country skiing or skijoring in winter.
Things to do in Rosslyn
Residents of Rosslyn don’t need to go too far to get their shopping done. Retail destinations Northgate Centre and North Town Mall are at your doorstep if you buy a home in this neighborhood. Here, you’ll be able to stock up on supplies, buy yourself an outfit for a special occasion, or browse familiar high street and national brands. Northgate Centre also caters to residents’ financial needs and offers some medical facilities as well. And that’s just around the corner. If you’re willing to travel a little further, indie boutiques in Whyte Avenue, 124th Street, and even 104 Street/Jasper Avenue downtown, offer an inspired range of gorgeous things waiting to be acquired.
The area’s many parks make for a great day out in any weather. Picnic your summer weekends away, follow trails in the Fall, and enjoy a spot of snowshoeing in winter. Mackinnon Ravine Park, Terwillegar Park, William Hawrelak Park, Victoria Park, Hermitage Park, Rundle Park...the list is endless!
For those wanting to dig deeper into the history of the region, the Royal Alberta Museum lends itself to multiple visits. Hosting events from time to time and featuring a special Children’s Gallery, a trip here makes for the perfect day out in the city. Art lovers feel equally passionate about the Art gallery of Alberta which has a rich collection of Canadian abstract painting and sculpture.
Living in Rosslyn, North West Edmonton brings you closer to nature in more ways than one. If eating farm to table style is a personal passion, the year-round Old Strathcona is sure to delight. Local producers showcase farm-fresh produce so you can stock up for the week. Held every Saturday, it features 130 stalls selling everything from beautiful collectibles for your home to clothing and accessories, under the same roof as some delectable cooked food, and the farmer's market staple of fruit and vegetables.
Golfers enjoy the charm of a round of golf in one of the courses set along the river. Another place to meet like-minded residents is at the community centre or one of many City of Edmonton recreation centres.
Edmonton has activities and events filling its calendar all year round, so you’ll never be short of things to do. Folk-music aficionados countdown to the annual Edmonton Folk Music Festival in August. This outdoor event draws talent and fans from far beyond the area and is a great time to let your hair down while enjoying some great music and lip-smacking food!
