It’s easy to see why southeast Edmonton is becoming one of the city’s most popular areas to call home. In particular, the rapidly developing community of Tamarack has become increasingly desirable for those seeking the condo lifestyle due to its convenient location and ample amenities.
Of course, don’t just take our word for it. If you’re considering a condo in this corner of the city, read on to discover why Tamarack could be the perfect fit for you.
1. Transportation and Commuting
Tamarack is one of the best-situated communities in the capital region. For starters, the southeast corner provides quick access to the Whitemud, guaranteeing a quick commute through the city. The Anthony Henday is also just around the corner, making trips around and out of Edmonton a breeze. Being close to the Henday also means easy access to surrounding communities such as St. Albert, Sherwood Park and even Leduc in a matter of minutes.
For those who prefer public transit, Tamarack is home to a newly built transit hub and several bus stations. The abundance of stops throughout entire area guarantees easy access and average travelling time to the LRT runs just over half an hour.
2. Green Spaces
Another huge draw of Tamarack is the ample green space dotting the area. In fact, over 67 acres of green space has been reserved for open fields, natural reserves, ravines, and lakes in just this neighbourhood alone.
Tamarack developers also kept families in mind as, here too, you’ll find an abundance of playgrounds, over two kilometres of tree-lined walking paths, and soccer fields for the enjoyment of both kids and parents alike.
3. Shopping and Entertainment
Whatever you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it here. In addition to nearby grocery stores such as Save on Foods and Superstore, you’ll find a Walmart super centre, the RioCan Meadows shopping hub (featuring Winners, Home Depot, Best Buy etc), and much more.
Capitalizing on the Henday’s close proximity also means you can reach South Edmonton Common in under 15 minutes. Not only will you find great shopping and dining, you can also catch the latest movies at the huge Cineplex theatre, or head out for a night of fun at the brand new Rec Room.
4. Recreation Centres
The brand new 234,419 square foot Meadows Recreation Centre is one of Edmonton’s newest leisure hubs. Some of the many amenities offered in this barrier-free facility include a huge aquatic centre (featuring lane and leisure pools), a fully-fledged fitness centre, gymnasium, two NHL-sized rinks, outdoor sports fields and much more.
Anyone looking for a different work-out experience will be pleased there’s also a GoodLife fitness and Spa-Lady close by.
