Communities in High River
High River’s downtown has been completely revitalized and much of it is bordered by the beautiful George Lane Memorial Park and Happy Trails pathways. Located in the centre of town, many of High River’s amenities are just short walk or bike ride away. There are several mixed-use developments featuring second and third-story apartments that are great choices for professionals looking to live in the downtown.
High River is home to many fully established neighbourhoods, complete with mature trees and friendly neighbours. Within these communities you will find a wide mix of housing types including single-family, heritage homes, semi-detached and townhouses. There is also a great selection of good sized, empty lots that are ready for you to build your dream home or new infill.
Each area has its own unique characteristics and amenities. Homes in the southwest and central areas are all in close proximity to downtown shopping, services, restaurants and special events. Many homes in the southeast border Emerson or Sunshine Lake and the walking paths and parks that surround them. Homes in the north are all close to the Highwood Golf Course, as well as a new commercial shopping centre currently being developed.
As a fast growing community, High River has several new developments offering housing options that are suitable to everyone from first-time homebuyers, families, retirees or those looking to downsize.
Additionally, over 1700 acres of land north of High River was annexed in 2012 which will provide space for the town to grow over the next 30 years. Developers are currently finalizing plans for these areas with the hope of breaking ground in the near future.
One such development is the Villas On Monteith, located in High River’s newest neighborhood in Montrose. The Villas On Monteith offers a freshly designed living environment in this historic southern town. Proximity to schools, parks and pathways make Montrose family-friendly, while fine architectural additions lend elegance and style.
