Find Your Dream Home in These Two “Hidden Gem” Neighbourhoods in Edmonton


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.

Welcome home to Crescent Trails and Stillwater.

The stars align in Crescent Trails

Take a short 20-minute drive 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.

For this very reason, one major landmark is the community stargazing platform, being that Crescent Trails is so often visited by the spectacular lightshow of the Northern Lights 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 Secondary, makes it a solid choice for families, and transit stops and highway access are also close by.

Amenities run deep in Stillwater

Stillwater in SW 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.

The promise of Edmonton

And there you have it: Crescent Trails, a community where anything is possible under the stars, and Stillwater, where you can fulfill your dream of a home in a neighbourhood with everything your family needs to live a well-rounded life.


Good luck in your search for a new home and we hope you have the chance to further discover these two special communities we consider to be “hidden gems.”
