It feels like you can see the whole world from any rooftop patio in the Community of Laurier Heights.
Tucked away at the end of 142 street, Laurier Heights boasts abundant river valley trails, North Saskatchewan River Valley access and mature trees as far as the eye can see, with captivating views of the Edmonton downtown skyline.
“It’s a quiet, almost island like community,” says Kerri-lyn Holland of Holland and Associates with RE/MAX River City. “Once you’re here you really feel protected and private. There’s trails everywhere! You can jump into the river valley from so many different vantage points, with the Edmonton Valley Zoo, the Edmonton Rowing Club and pathways to Hawrelak Park, it is a river valley oasis. And the views, you just can’t beat the views from here,” says Holland.
