AUDREY ABUAN - RE/MAX Real Estate REALTOR®
Summerside is within the Ellerslie Area Structure Plan. Construction in Summerside began in the early 2000s and is still actively under way. The plan for Summerside was to create a community that provides for a range of low- to medium-density residential and business development opportunities, in addition to a good mixture of institutional and recreational land use.
Summerside also contains a variety of park spaces and two school sites once complete. A business and office park is located along Parsons Road and small community-level commercial facilities are located along Ellerslie Road to the north. Summerside's most significant feature is the 13-hectare and 28-foot-deep Summerside Lake, located in the western portion of the community and is Edmonton’s first purpose built man made lake. By contrast, Summerside was created for the sole purpose of providing residents with recreational space where they can swim, fish, and use non-motorized vehicles. Residents pay a maintenance fee to enjoy exclusive use of the lake.
Summerside was named after a city on Prince Edward Island. The neighbourhood exudes a nautical character reminiscent of an east coast resort community.
