Elmwood is home to a diverse populace that enjoys the pleasant parks, schools, and range of affordable housing options available here today. This residential area also boasts a number of shops and services, particularly along Nairn Avenue, and is just a short drive from the bustling Kildonan Place shopping centre.
East Kildonan is a community with deep roots and a lot of long time residents. Full of green spaces and a scenic walking path and bike trail with a variety of family-friendly restaurants, a gorgeous park to explore and shopping to do, it’s easy to feel at home in this neighbourhood.
The greater city area, considered River East, is a largely affluent neighbourhood filled with big houses with large yards that are buttressed by several large athletic facilities – namely soccer pitches and ball diamonds – and parks. The area is a great choice for parents of pups, as Kilcona Park is the city’s largest off-leash dog park. The whole park is encased by a few winding ponds, while it also has a nifty disc golf course, along with the 18-hole Harbour View Golf Course. Even better golf in the area comes courtesy of Rossmere Golf and Country Club, while other large parks include Bunn’s Creek Centennial Park, Gateway Park, and Paufeld Park, further solidifying the area’s reputation as an ideal destination for young families who relish getting active in the great outdoors.
