LIVE IN SOUTH EDMONTON
Bulyea Heights, a residential neighbourhood in southwest Edmonton, owes its name to George Bulyea, Alberta’s first Lieutenant Governor.
This is a newer neighbourhood, with over three quarters of the presently-standing buildings constructed between 1985 and 1995. The community was first designed as part of the Riverbend Area Structure Plan of 1979, but construction didn’t get underway until six years later. In spite of its fairly recent construction, the neighbourhood is relatively well-established. Almost three quarters of its population can claim a residency of over 5 years. The vast majority of the homes in Bulyea Heights are detached single-family houses, with a small sampling of semi-detached homes and row houses. Nearly all the dwellings in the area are owner-occupied, and 65 percent of the households are made up of married couples with children.
Bulyea Heights is bordered on its west side by Terwilliger Drive, and on the south by Rabbit Hill Road. Whitemud Drive serves as the northern boundary. Homes at the eastern edge of Bulyea Heights enjoy scenic views, as they overlook the natural boundary formed by the Whitemud Creek Ravine, a tributary of the North Saskatchewan River.
Proximity to the Ravine offers convenient access to the hiking trails and recreational activities of the River Valley. The Brookview Community League, which offers a wealth of activities, sports and community programs, is a hub of activity in this family-oriented neighbourhood.
