Blue Quill Estates

LIVE IN SOUTH EDMONTON

As with neighboring Blue Quill, the land of Blue Quill Estates was annexed to the City of Edmonton in 1971, with construction beginning shortly thereafter. Half of all construction in the neighborhood dates to the 1970s with the rest happening in spurts decade after decade. Now approximately 40% of buildings in Blue Quill Estates are single-detached homes with another 40% being low-rise apartments. The rest are a mix of semi-detached homes and row houses.

The Blue Quill Estates neighbourhood overlooks Whitemud Creek Ravine to the west. It is bordered by 119 Street on the east and by 23 Avenue on the south. The northern boundary is a utility corridor located approximately one half-block north of 29 Avenue. Access to river valley trail system via Whitemud Creek Ravine offers plentiful recreation opportunities and the nearby Derrick Club in Westbrook Estates provides golfers a scenic round during warmer months.

Blue Quill Estates was planned around a centrally located recreation site and park and is interestingly, one of the statistically safest neighborhoods in Edmonton: in 2001 there were only three crimes reported all year (all property related, none violent).

As with Blue Quill (and all the neighborhoods in the Kaskitayo area), Blue Quill Estates is named after a native leader from Edmonton’s history; in this case Chief Blue Quill.
