ABOUT THIS MLS® AREA
Island Lakes is a relatively new community initially constructed in 1985 with continued development throughout the 2000s. The southern portion of the area remains largely undeveloped farmland, while extensive residential development dominates in the north. Known for its spacious upscale houses, this area is popular with families and professionals. The plentiful green space and lakeside walkways are well-used by joggers, cyclists, and dog walkers. Island Lakes balances natural beauty with modern amenities. Large, new homes provide residents with the space, floor plans, and finishings they desire while the area's lakes, paths, and parks create a tranquil environment not always available in newer subdivisions.
Royalwood residents enjoy the beauty of nature with the convenience of spacious, modern homes and easy access to St. Vital Centre and downtown. Nestled on the banks of the Seine River, Winnipeg's largest remaining riverbank forest, the Bois-des-Esprits, offers acres of trails and is home to five interconnected ecosystems: river bottom, wetland, oak forest, aspen forest, and grassland. While the residential development may be recent, the area's natural beauty gives it a more established feel. Royalwood is the first Winnipeg development to incorporate a wetland system with native plants and grasses within its borders.
Bonavista is a new neighbourhood within an established Winnipeg area that is home to all modern conveniences, including schools, shopping, community centres and the Seine River. Bonavista provides various opportunities for active transportation, recreation and leisure activities. Multi-use pathways create scenic linkages between green spaces and naturalized wetlands, giving you the space to enjoy fitness, relaxation and peace of mind.
