What’s It Like to Live in the Glenridding Ravine Community?


Not far from the North Saskatchewan River and tucked away in the south west portion of Edmonton, Glenridding Ravine is noted for being close to facilities many of us desire including several golf courses for example the Windermere Golf and Country Club, Jagare Ridge Golf course plus shopping, off leash trails, 2 ski hills, several rec centres and playgrounds are close by.

I interviewed some of the sales people that work for the new home builders in community. They suggested several…
