News/Blog Photo

Summer is here and our neighbourhood is full of activities to keep you and your family busy.


Shawnessy Terrace offers quiet living with immediate access to Downtown Edmonton. Located in the Central McDougall neighbourhood of Edmonton at 10729 108 Street Northwest, this welcoming and fun community is close to schools, shopping, and recreation.

If you are new to the area, Matterhorn Investing has some great suggestions for summer fun in the community!

The Kingsway Mall is less than five minutes away and is a cool place to visit on hot days. Shop 'til you drop or take the family to a summer event held on the second level of the mall. This month, the mall is hosting an interactive bubble show where kids of all ages can enjoy bubble tricks and fun magic. The event is held July 27th from 9am to 11am.

The MacEwan University Sport and Wellness Centre is only a ten minute walk from Shawnessy Terrace and offers fitness classes, aquatics programs, and training services. During the summer months, the centre offers day camps for kids which include outdoor swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and even log rolling. Other events include volleyball and basketball, hockey, and inner tube games.

The Central McDougall Park is a five minute walk from Shawnessy Terrace and the perfect summer fun location. Adults and children can enjoy a day in the sun playing tennis, relaxing under the gazebo, or watching the kids play. The children's area includes a jungle gym, sandy play area, and a splash pad.

Looking for a great restaurant or bar to enjoy a delicious meal on a hot day? Central McDougall has some really great restaurants including the African Safari Restaurant, Café Amore Bistro, and Corso 32. Additionally, if you are looking for a sports bar, The Canadian Brewhouse offers weekly specials and a tasty menu.

Evening entertainment is easy to find here, catch the latest box office hit at Landmark Cinemas or try your luck at the Baccarat Casino, both venues are only a five minute drive from Shawnessy Terrace.

Matterhorn Investing hopes all our Shawnessy Terrace residents have a safe and fun summer!
