If you’re looking for a quieter location that is still within reach of the city, consider one of our three inviting communities to the south of Edmonton. You might be right at home in the charming surroundings of Ruisseau (in Beaumont), the peaceful setting of Meadowview (in Leduc) or the tree-lined landscape of South Ravines and Ravines of Devon.
Located in the city of Beaumont, just a 5 minute drive past the Edmonton city limits, Ruisseau is a welcoming community with a sprinkling of French history and flavour.
Upgraded sports facilities
The Beaumont Sport and Recreation Centre is directly across the street from Ruisseau. This newly renovated facility offers a full-sized ice pad, a multi-sport fieldhouse, a gymnasium, a climbing wall, an aquatic centre and an indoor track to keep you active year-round.
Playgrounds and parks
The whole family will enjoy the accessible playground, multi-use trails and scenic storm pond. Walk to the nearby Four Seasons Park, which features a spray park, baseball diamonds, picnic sites, sports fields and trout fishing in Don Sparrow Lake.
In addition to the shops, restaurants and services in Beaumont, other retail options – including Costco and the Premium Outlet Collection at Edmonton International Airport – are a short 15 minute drive away.
Bilingual school options
Residents can choose from a variety of Public and Catholic schools, and construction of a new K to 12 Francophone school has been approved for the community.
Take a drive 15 minutes south of Edmonton, and you’ll discover the city of Leduc. Conveniently located off Highway 2A and Pioneer Road, Meadowview offers a serene setting with ample green spaces, trails, parks and playgrounds.
Dinosaur Park playground
Kids will love this custom structure, inspired by the discovery of a Hadrosaur fossil in the area in 2013. The play area brings the prehistoric theme to life with dinosaur skeletons and a tree slide topped with lifelike sculptures.
Meadowview has 2 kilometres of paved pathways for walking, jogging and cycling – all leading to landscaped green spaces within the community.

Leduc Common commercial centre is a 10 minute drive away, with anchor stores like Canadian Tire, Rona and Walmart.
