Is great access to the Edmonton International Airport important to you? Do you want to live near the edge of the city in an attractive, single-family home neighbourhood (about 10 percent is duplexes)?
If so, take a look at Rutherford in south Edmonton. This community, named after Alberta's first premier, Alexander Cameron Rutherford, used to be farmland. It will soon be surrounded on all sides by quality residential development, with easy access to Anthony Henday Drive (Edmonton’s Ring Road) and Highway 2 (Queen Elizabeth II Highway, running south to Calgary).
Rutherford hasn’t lost its connection to the natural habitat, preserving it with a series of tranquil parks -- including the Virginia Park Woodland -- that dot the neighborhood.
Rutherford is bounded on the west by 127 Street, on the east by James Mowatt Trail (111 Street), on the north by Ellerslie Road and on the south by Blackmud Creek Ravine, with a line connecting the ravine to 127 Street near 25 Avenue SW.
