Compared to many of the other capital cities across Canada’s provinces, the city of Regina is still downright affordable.
But, if you prefer the quiet of smaller suburban communities, the city of Regina may not be the right choice for you.
Luckily, the stunning Saskatchewan landscape that surrounds Regina is littered with plenty of small communities within an easy commute of the jobs and other conveniences of the city.
Here are 3 such communities located just outside of Regina that you may not have considered.
Located a mere 12 kms east of Regina, White City is a fast growing town with a lot to offer homebuyers. In contrast to the city, lot sizes are a lot more generous and buyers are drawn the wide, gently winding streets, overhanging trees and friendly neighbours.
While the convenient big city shopping and other amenities will always be close at hand, White City has quite a lot to offer residents within its own boundary. Commercial development along Highway 1 hosts several well-known chain restaurants, not to mention grocery stores and other shopping opportunities.
In their downtime, residents can unwind at the White City Community Center that features a skate park and sports field. Also, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention Aspen Links Country Club.
Emerald Park is a neighbouring community to White City and shares many of the same commercial services. The development along Highway 1 provides residents access to top chain restaurants, great shopping and more.
Much like White City, Emerald Park real estate tends to boast larger lot sizes. If you share the vision of a family home with large backyard for the kids and family dog, this small community might be the perfect fit for you.
A recent boost in new development in the area also provides ample opportunity for new and experienced buyers to enter the housing market. Emerald Park is undoubtedly a community on the rise, so it’s a great time to jump aboard.
The scenic Qu’Appelle Valley is less than 30 kms northwest of Regina’s city center. At the heart of the valley, is Lumsden, a small community that offers big-time views of the valley that surrounds it.
The city makes for an incredible commuter community for Regina workers as well as an ideal home base for exploration of nearby Last Mountain Lake, the largest naturally occurring lake in this part of the province. The lake area offers numerous public beaches, incredible swimming spots not to mention incredible fishing, water skiing and other water sports.
Settlers first arrived in the area that would ultimately become Lumsden as early as 1881. This long, proud history means the community’s real estate market features a pleasing blend of well-established character homes as well as new builds.
There’s something here for virtually all home buyers.
If it’s the rural or semi-rural atmosphere that interests you above all, let the many small communities that surround Regina take your attention. These communities are located within an easy commute of the major metro center, while providing a welcome respite after a long day’s work.
