The Jennifer Queen TeamNotes on Whyte Ridge

Whyte Ridge Map

Whyte Ridge is a residential subdivision of approximately 1500 homes in the southwest corner of the city of Winnipeg. It is defined by Brady Road on the west, Kenaston Boulevard on the east, McGillivray Boulevard on the north and a boundary line created by extending the path of Bishop Grandin Boulevard from a point just east of Waverley Street to Brady Road. The subdivision was built on former farmland, just south of a small town site that was historically known as Fort Whyte. The first homes in the subdivision were constructed in 1986 with construction for the area mostly completed by the late 2000's. Two large man-made lakes were excavated for the development and a ridge was created from the earth that was removed. The lakes are simply named East Lake and West Lake. While no fish have been stocked in either lake, because they drain out to the Red River through underground pipes, fish have made their way in. Whyte Ridge is approximately located 13km from downtown and the airport

"I love this neighbourhood. We actually moved here in 2018, and I feel like we hit the jackpot. We're close to both schools, which is really great. In the summer, we can walk to, like, the dance school and the circus school down the road. And we live close to the movies and Walmart, and they're just everything's close to us. And I love walking. So that's what I love about this neighbourhood is I feel like there's lots of things that are close to us and within walking distance. I feel safe in this neighbourhood as well. Like, I think it's just a really safe, great neighbourhood." 

" I moved here in 1994, and I love this neighbourhood. Everybody is so friendly, lots of dog walkers, lots of just walkers and people are so friendly."

" I like that I'm able to walk every day and it's a safe neighbourhood. [...] My kids are growing up, but the schools are available, as community club. So it's just a very nice neighbourhood."
