LIVE IN SOUTH EDMONTON
Rhatigan Ridge, a residential neighbourhood in southwestern Edmonton, is a popular locale for families looking to put down roots. Ninety percent of the households are made up of married couples, and 60 percent of them include children as well. Almost half of the households have four or more residents. This family-friendly area is well-established, with almost three quarters of the residents able to claim residency in the community for over five years.
The vast majority of houses in the development are detached single-family units, with a small amount of duplexes and row houses present as well. Virtually all the houses are occupied by their owners. Originally part of the original Riverbend/Terwillegar Heights Area Plan of 1961, Rhatigan Ridge was developed in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. Many of the homes are built on cul-de-sacs and crescents, while others feature spacious lots.
This attractive community overlooks the picturesque North Saskatchewan River Valley to the west. It is defined on the east by Terwillegar Drive, on the north by 40th Avenue, and on the south by Rabbit Hill Road.
Residents of Rhatigan Ridge enjoy many amenities. The scenic River Valley offers opportunities for recreational activities, while families with children find the presence of two different elementary schools within Rhatigan Ridge to be a distinct advantage. The Earl Buxton Elementary School is a public school, while St. Mary Elementary School is operated by the Edmonton Catholic School System. Two separate parks – Thomas Rhatigan Park and Mary Lobar Park – are also present in the community.
The neighbourhood is named for Thomas Rhatigan, an Edmonton agriculturalist who regularly received national recognition for his oat crops.
