About the Board

Neighbours Knowing Neighbours, Neighbours Helping Neighbours

The Edgemont Community League is a group of volunteer community members who represent and organize opportunities for residents of Edgemont, Edgemont East, Timberidge, Edgemont Ravines, and Woodhaven.

 

Our community is situated in Southwest Edmonton off Lessard Road and west of the Henday. We are lucky enough to have beautiful green spaces and ravines with multi-use trails throughout our community.

Meet The Board

I moved to Edgemont in March 2017 and have seen quite the transformation since.​ What I love about Edgemont is the people who live here; I feel like we're a community of neighbours.​​ I love adventure in any form: rock climbing, snowboarding, backcountry camping... the list goes on!

I am a life-long west-ender and I moved into Edgemont in the Ravines area in 2019. I knew that I wanted to raise my family in a vibrant, natural community. I enjoy watching the coyotes, rabbits, deer, and birds along the ravine.​ I am a huge Oilers fan and love reading. I am passionate about investing time and energy into my communities.

I have lived in the Edgemont community for about 2 years. I am in the Edgemont East area, and we were drawn to this community for multiple reasons. One of which being we wanted to be close to family. We also wanted to be located in a new developing area where countless opportunities and diversity was around us. I have a big passion for all things children, and growth in general as I always seem to find myself wanting to help out within the communities I find myself in.

I've lived in Edgemont since 2020. I love seeing how much this community has grown in the past few years, and what it has to offer. Its proximity to amenities, the people, and the walking trails are just some of the things that make this a great place to live. I love the outdoors, from camping and fishing, to walking my dogs on the trails in the neighbourhood. Say hi if you see us on the paths!

I've lived in Edgemont since 2017. We previously lived in Rosenthal, and really loved the area and proximity to amenities while still surrounded by nature. I love all things creative and being outdoors - you can catch me and my two boys exploring our community and around our city and tackling various artistic endeavours.​ I'm passionate about connection and making a positive impact. Being a part of the Board allows me to connect with neighbours and neighbouring communities, support various initiatives to improve the quality of life, and foster relationships where we live.

As the Membership Director of the Edgemont Community League, I am thrilled to be a part of this vibrant and inclusive community. Having lived in the neighborhood for 8 years, I have witnessed firsthand the warmth and sense of belonging that Edgemont offers to its residents. 

 

Being a member of the Edgemont Community League allows me to connect with my neighbors, build lasting friendships, and contribute to the betterment of our community. It's a privilege to serve as the Membership Director, as I get to welcome new members into our close-knit family and help them discover all the wonderful opportunities and resources that Edgemont has to offer. 

 

From organizing events and programs to fostering a sense of unity, the Edgemont Community League plays a vital role in bringing neighbors together and creating a strong community bond. I am proud to be a part of this organization and look forward to continuing to enhance the lives of our members and the overall well-being of the Edgemont community.

I've lived in Edgemont since 2019. I was drawn to the natural beauty and access to walking paths. ​I’m a huge hockey fan and rarely miss a game. I also love dogs!

I've lived in Edgemont since 2019. I was drawn to all the natural ravine areas as that is not something that is offered in many newer urban communities. Every section of the community has areas devoted to allowing us to be surrounded by nature and to enjoy the peace that being in nature brings.​ I love being outdoors, whether it is with my dogs (Jasper and Lacy) or riding my horse (Amigo).

In 2014, we impulsively moved to Woodhaven in Edgemont. We literally did not have a proper paved road for a very long time, but it was worth it to live in this gorgeous, growing community. Quick access to the numerous trails surrounded by trees was one of the reasons we chose to live here. As a local Realtor, I've also helped many families move both in and out of Edgemont, and even within Edgemont. Spending quality time with family and our dog is a top priority. I've been a long time Oilers fan and recently gotten into golf. For the last year and a half, I've become a regular at the F45 gym and love that it's just minutes from home. Just one of the many amenities this community offers!"

I am a new resident of Edgemont and am eager to contribute to my new community. Creating a safe and vibrant neighbourhood is a top priority for me, and what better way to achieve that than by actively participating and taking matters into my own hands. In my free time, I love exploring the local restaurant scene, embarking on travel adventures, immersing myself in nature, and cherishing moments with my loved ones. Edgemont has become my home, and I'm excited to be part of its growth and prosperity. Let's work together to make our neighbourhood the best it can be!

We are brand new to Edmonton and just moved in earlier this year from Airdrie. Being a part of the league gives us an opportunity to grow with the community and get to know our neighbors. Some of my favourite things about Edgemont are its close proximity to amenities, ravine walking paths, that it is a kid and dog friendly community.​ I spent my growing years between continents and finally laid roots in Alberta where my kids were born and am loving the variety of winter sports and the warm hearted people.
