Edmonton Community Spotlight: Hawks Ridge in Northwest Edmonton Featured Image

One of the latest additions to Northwest Edmonton, Hawks Ridge is a burgeoning community in the city’s “Big Lake” district. Like all Big Lake district neighbourhoods, Hawks Ridge is a nature lover’s delight. In addition to its proximity to Big Lake (waterfront views, anyone?), Hawks Ridge features 105 acres of natural area littered with walking trails, mature trees, scenic vantage points, wetlands and more. But that’s far from all. Hawks Ridge’s stylish detached and semi-detached homes, combined with easy access to amenities, make it the ideal neighbourhood for active families who want to be near it all. 

Did you know? The Big Lake Area Structure Plan was established in 1991. Despite its approval over 30 years ago, development did not begin until the late 2000s. Today, the district encompasses five modern communities: Haws Ridge, Kinglet Gardens, Pintail Landing, Starling, and Trumpeter.
