Devonshire Village, formerly known as the Peguis area, is made up of three micro-communities, which include: Devonshire Park, Crocus Meadows, and Starlite Village. Located in the heart of established West Transcona, Devonshire Village is a modern community that sits close to numerous grocery stores and shopping centres like Kildonan Place Mall and Costco, and offers abundant green space, naturalized low-impact storm water management, and accessible transportation options promoting healthy living. The Devonshire Village/Peguis neighbourhood is bounded by Lagimodiere Boulevard on the west, Ravelston Avenue West and the Central Manitoba Railway's Pine Falls line on the south, the west lot line on the west side of Stoney Lake and Sand Point bays and Woodside Crescent and the Canadian Pacific Railway's Keewatin line on the north.
It is estimated that upon completion Devonshire Village will house up to 2500 residential units. Prices for residential homes range anywhere from around $270,000 for an attached townhouse-style home, up to $600,000 for a waterfront home with walkout basement. While there are a few older homes on larger lots, the majority of the homes within this area are new construction and part of the Devonshire Village development plan. Construction on the new home phases began in 2015, and continues today. Common floor plans include townhomes, bungalows, bi-levels, cab-overs, and two-storey homes. For the lifestyle choice of condominiums, Devonshire Village offers many condo community choices, with styles to suit every taste and budget. Price ranges for a condominium are anywhere between $175,000 for a smaller, one bedroom unit all the way up to $340,000 for a spacious penthouse. Condo projects are located throughout the area with easy access to all the amenities and transportation offered in the neighbourhood.
Devonshire Village belongs to the River East Transcona School Division, but does not have any schools within the immediate community at present.
There are no major hospitals in the immediate area. However, the neighbourhood is less than 7 kilometers from the Concordia Hospital. The Concordia Hospital is part of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority and partners with health care agencies and providers to serve the community of northeast Winnipeg.
Devonshire Village is made up entirely of residential homes but it is in close proximity to amazing shopping located along Regent Avenue. Kildonan Place Shopping Centre, with more than 100 stores and services available is a popular destination for those living in the area. It is the largest enclosed shopping centre in the northeast quadrant of the city. The centre is anchored by. Surrounding the Kildonan Place Mall, there are a number of large retail outlets including; Costco, Canadian Tire, Winners, Home Depot, Superstore, Walmart, among others.
Devonshire Village is fortunate enough to have The Transcona Trail which can easily be accessed off of Transcona Boulevard. The Transcona Trail is a multi-use asphalt path that is 6.7 kilometer in length and used by walkers, runners and cyclists. It follows a variety of hydro lines along Manitoba Hydro right of way. It starts at Regent Avenue and runs to Ravelston where you’ll find the entrance to the Rotary Tall Gross Nature Park (corner of Ravelston Avenue and Bradley Street). The South Transcona Community Path provides a fully separated walking and cycling path along Dugald Road. It runs from the intersection of Terracon Place and Dugald Road out to the suburb of South Transcona. The path is 3.5 meters wide asphalt surface and is 4.2 kilometers in length. Both trails pass through a number of different parks as well as off leash dog parks.
Just outside of Devonshire Village are many of the popular amenities offered for all residents of Transcona, some of which include: a number of playgrounds, parks, splash pads, outdoor rinks, three major community clubs and two indoor arenas. Park City West, Oxford Heights, and East End Community Clubs organize a variety of recreational activities, while East End and Roland Michener arenas host most on-ice activities. Roland Michener Arena is the home to the MMJHL (Manitoba Major Junior Hockey League) team Transcona Railors.
The Transcona Kinsmen Centennial Pool is a new addition to the neighbourhood with phase two having opened in the summer of 2017. It is located at 1101 Wabasha Street, at the corner of Kildare Avenue East and Wasbasha Street. This pool replaces the former outdoor pool and adds on to the existing splash pad. It is now a fully-functioning outdoor aquatic facility! Other features that were put in place include the new beach entry with spray features, a four-slide water slide feature with landing pool, diving boards, seating areas and landscaping. Fun tidbit: this new waterpark is now the largest waterpark in all of Winnipeg!
Club Regent Casino is located at 1425 Regent Avenue West. It is one of two casinos in the city (the other being the McPhillips Street Station Casino), both are owned and operated by the Manitoba Lotteries Corporation, and in turn, the Government of Manitoba. The casino opened in 1993, after an assessment regarding the distribution of gambling revenue, was released. Connected to the casino is the Canad Inns Club Regent Hotel. The casino contains a McDonald’s restaurant, as well as a concert stage, on which regular comedy, and musical performances are scheduled.
