In Aspen Ridge, connecting with nature will be as simple as a walk in the park. The neighbourhood is bounded on the northwest by the Northeast Swale, a native grassland ecosystem. To help protect this important ecological feature, a transitional park called The Greenway will be built between the edge of the neighbourhood and the Swale.
McOrmond Drive will serve Aspen Ridge and nearby neighbourhoods with a mix of commercial amenities and high-density housing. The street will act as a transportation corridor, creating a vibrant, transit-friendly node that will connect to adjacent neighbourhoods and the city’s north end employment district.
The area will provide the ideal place to grab groceries on your way home or grab a coffee before hopping on the bus. McOrmond will offer everything you need, including shops, restaurants, lounges and pubs, spas, hair salons, medical clinics, grocery stores and more.
The entire park system in Aspen Ridge has also been carefully planned to connect pedestrian and cyclist trails throughout the neighbourhood.
As part of creating a complete community, Aspen Ridge features a neighbourhood centre, with a square, conveniences and medium-density housing. Acting as a destination point, the square will be a place to meet and build community ties.
