Edmonton Community Feature: The Best of Allard
Allard is an extremely sought after community on the south side of Edmonton.
Located just minutes away from the Queen Elizabeth Highway in the Heritage Valley area and named after the talented Dr. Charles Alexander Allard – an Edmonton-based surgeon, broadcaster, entrepreneur, innovator, industrialist, philanthropist, and visionary – this Edmonton neighbourhood is equally diverse in what it has to offer.
Green Spaces and Walking Trails
Allard offers delightful walking trails in the nearby Blackmud Creek Ravine – a 6.4-acre area used by visitors all year round! In addition to playgrounds, fields and parks, you’ll also find over 27 acres of green spaces to enjoy.
This oh-so-convenient community is located right beside what is soon to be a 280 acre shopping and entertainment development. The construction of this amazing town centre has already started – meaning it won’t be long until you’ll have everything you need at your fingertips. On top of this new development, there are plenty of businesses already open nearby such as Shoppers Drugmart, a gas station, and Superstore. No matter where you like to shop, Allard makes it accessible.
You’ll also be close to several different entertainment venues such as those in South Edmonton Common. There, you’ll find a massive Cineplex Odeon, The Rec Room, Chucky Cheese, pubs, restaurants and more. The Currents of Windermere shopping hub is also only a ten-minute drive away and offers many of the same entertainment opportunities as South Common.
If family is at the top of your priority list, this is the community for you. Allard is located within a convenient distance to schools – including a brand new K-9 school (open September 2017) that will house over 900 students. Other schools in the area include Donald R. Getty K-9, Roberta McAdams School K-6, and Micheal Strembitsky School 1-9. There’s no doubt that Allard is a great place to be if you have school-aged children.
Transit and Commuting
Last (but certainly not least) this neighbourhood is easily accessible by transit for those who prefer to take the bus to work. In addition, a new LRT station is planned for Allard – making it ultra convenient for those who work downtown or who have older kids needing to commute to school.
For drivers, nearby routes such as 127th street (leading to the Anthony Henday), James Mowatt Trail (111th street), the Queen Elizabeth Highway and 30th Avenue (leading to Ellerslie Road) will get you where you need to go quickly and easily.
