Like most major cities in Canada, Edmonton has seen a steady rise in housing prices over the past few months. But in this challenging time for buyers, two newer neighbourhoods in the city are making the idea of realizing your dream home a wonderful reality, even in a seller’s market.
Take a short 20-minute drive south from downtown Edmonton and find yourself in Crescent Trails, a community close to the city, yet far enough away to promise amazing night sky views.
Located in Edmonton’s desirable southeast in Aurora Walker, the area was aptly named – one of the neighbourhood’s most popular draws is the community stargazing platform, and Crescent Trails is often visited by the spectacular light show of the Aurora Borealis or blanketed in a forest of stars.
Make your home in Crescent Trails and you’ll be living alongside sprawling parks and kilometres of scenic pathways. The proximity of neighbourhood schools, including Shauna May Seneca, makes it a solid choice for families, and transit stops and easy highway access are also close by.

Stillwater in southwest Edmonton’s River Valley area makes owning a home highly attainable, while taking the term “master-planned community” next-level.
A neighbourhood with its own Homeowners’ Association, Stillwater residents enjoy exclusive access to a world-class amenity centre, featuring playgrounds, a skating rink in the winter, a splash pad in the summer and countless activities to sustain an active lifestyle.
Trails, parks and green space have been seamlessly integrated into the community, and the location couldn’t be better. Enjoy easy access to retail at Callingwood Shopping Centre and the Currents of Windermere Shopping Centre, as well as public transit and major highways.
