Located deep in the heart of Southwest Edmonton’s Heritage Valley, Jagare Ridge (also known as Hays Ridge) is a recreation-friendly community known for its high-end homes and laid-back atmosphere. In addition to vast open green spaces, walking trails and scenic stormwater ponds, Jagare Ridge residents enjoy stunning fairway views, as provided by the neighbourhood’s 18-hole championship golf course.
But that’s not all.
Jagare Ridge homeowners are also afforded convenient access to urban amenities, including schools, shops and services, via Ellerslie Road, Rabbit Hill Road and the West Anthony Henday.
Jagare Ridge is bounded by the community of Glenridding Ravine to the west, Ellerslie Road to the north, 141st Street to the east and 28th Ave to the south. A newer neighbourhood, the Jagare Ridge (Hays Ridge) Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan was established in 2012. As such, development in the area is ongoing, making it the ideal community for modern buyers in search of a luxury home in a brand-new community.
Jagare Ridge is one of 15 neighbourhoods comprising the larger Heritage Valley district, which includes numerous other new construction communities such as Cavanagh, Graydon Hill and Rutherford. Like all Heritage Valley neighbourhoods, Jagare Ridge takes its name from a famous Edmontonian – in this case, Dr. Helen Hays, a local physician who “contributed greatly to Alberta’s palliative care programs.” She received many awards, including the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal and was also named an Edmontonian of the Century.

Price Range and Housing Stock
Though development in Jagare Ridge is still ongoing, single-family homes dominate the landscape. Five-bedroom, four-bathroom luxury properties are standard in the community and feature an average of 3,000 square feet of living space. This budding neighbourhood also showcases the work of some of the best high-end home builders in the capital region, including Birkholz Homes, Ace Lang Homes, Carriage Signature Homes and more. Detached homes also come in a wide range of sizes and styles, including executive bungalows, two-story front attached homes and estate duplexes.
There are also a small number of medium and high-density residences planned for the area, with an emphasis on luxury-style townhomes. These attached and semi-detached models offer many of the same lavish features as their single-family counterparts at a reduced cost (and reduced maintenance). Jagare Ridge townhomes and duplexes are perfect for downsizers looking to stay active in a prestigious, golf-side community.
Part of Jagare Ridge’s luxury status stems from its one-of-a-kind location. As a result, home prices tend to fare higher than the Edmonton average:
Average home price in Jagare Ridge: $1.2M*
