Edmonton Community Feature: The Best of Manning Village
The up-and-coming community of Manning Village offers residents the perfect blend of a convenient location, peaceful atmosphere, and affordable price tag.
Whether you’re looking for an affordable starter home, a bigger home for your growing family, or a smaller and stylish home for your retirement years, you can find it in Manning Village.
Anyone looking to build a new home should give this neighbourhood a closer look.
One of the best things about Manning Village is that there are home styles to suit all of your needs. Our townhome options are around 1,400 square feet, and they have just about everything you might be looking for in a home, including three bedrooms, a master ensuite, and an open-concept layout on the first floor. And they have prices that start below $330,000!
Families tend to prefer our large front-attached homes, which have enough space for everyone to spread out. They typically feature things like bonus rooms and loft spaces. Older couples looking to downsize are looking at some of our bungalow models. The single-storey plans are perfect for those who have mobility issues, and the smaller floor plans are all that you need once the kids have moved on.
Recreation in Your Neighbourhood
Manning Village offers plenty of recreational opportunities right outside your door. While the kids will undoubtedly love playing in the big backyard, you can also take them to the playground to meet up with some friends. You can chat with other parents while they expend some energy running around.
There are stormwater ponds to provide a picturesque background for a family evening walk, and in the 10-acre park, there’s an off-leash area so your dog can really run. In winter, get the kids to bundle up and head over to the toboggan hill, where you can have hours of fun if you pack a Thermos of hot chocolate.
Walkable Shopping Centre
Want to save the environment? You can do your part by walking to the shopping centre instead of driving. Manning Town Centre is within walking distance, and it features some of your favourite shops, like the Dollar Tree, Lowes, and Marshalls. There’s also a 10-screen movie theatre. Plan to pick up a lot of items? Don’t worry about driving. The close distance means that you’re hardly using any gas at all.
Additional Amenities Nearby
Aside from Manning Town Centre, there are a number of popular amenities within a 15 minute drive. These include grocery stores, doctors offices and medical centres, banks, and gas stations. You can stop at Londonderry Mall to buy the perfect birthday gift, or head to Costco to stock up on essentials like laundry detergent and toilet paper.

No matter where you live, you want your children to get a great education. Around Manning Village, you’ll find a number of public and Catholic schools that may meet your family’s needs.
The Edmonton School District typically guarantees placement in the school closest to your neighbourhood, but you can sometimes petition for a place in another nearby school if they have an environment that you prefer. This is only allowed when there’s space in the schools, but since the northeast part of Edmonton is still growing, you’ll find that most schools in this area have space for more children.
You can find a school where your child will be cared for and develop a love of learning.
