Each week I’m going to submit a blog post with information about individual subdivisions in Red Deer with interesting information I know and remember about each.
This first neighbourhood blog post will be about Morrisroe and particularly the older section of Morrisroe. The reason I’m writing about it first is because, out of all the communities I’ve lived in in Red Deer, i’ve lived in Morrisroe the longest.
I lived in the older section for over 20 years, from the time I was a toddler until my college years at the Red Deer College. I’ve probably walked and ridden my bike on every street and every back alley in Morrisroe.
Let me tell you what I know about the older section of Morrisroe and I why it is one Red Deer’s great subdivisions.
Subdivisions develop in different ways due to how their positioning in relationship to other subdivisions and how they are connected to the rest of the city. Morrisroe has seen property values rise at a regular rate since it’s inception in 1970 and one reason is location. When subdivision are surrounded by other residential subdivisions they tend to prosper. Morrisroe remains attractive to home buyers because the surrounding subdivisions provide a buffer from sometimes less desirable commercial and industrial areas. Of course Morrisroe has some commercial development but it’s low density commercial offering amenities that every neighbourhood needs, for example, groceries, bank, convenience store etc.
Morrisroe is surrounded buy 7 other great subdivisions. To the direct north of Morrisroe is Eastview, to the east and north east is Deerpark, to the southeast is Lancaster, to the south is Anders Park, to the southwest is Sunnybrook, directly west is Mountview and kitty corner on the Northwest corner of Morrisroe is Grandview. These are also all great subdivisions I’ll talk about in future posts.
Amenities close to Morrisroe include the Collicut Recreation Centre in Lancaster, the Coop Shopping Centre in Deerpark, Hunting Hills and Notre Dame high schools and the Eastview Middle School. In the middle of this cozy subdivision is Annie L. Gaetz Elementary School that I attended grade 1 to 6. More interestingly both of my kids also attended here their first few years of school.
Another attractive attribute Morrisroe flaunts is its accessibility. The Northeast corner is only a mile from Ross street that leading directly downtown. And on it’s South side is 32 ave that streams traffic quickly to the Southwest side of town, highway 2 and the Bower Mall and the Southcommon shopping district.
I could write about each of Red Deer’s subdivisions in great detail because I’ve lived in Red Deer since 1970. Because of this my knowledge runs deep and i’d be happy to answer anyones questions regarding Red Deer real estate and more specifically the subdivisions and areas of Red Deer.
