Prairie Arbour Estates is a brand new community, featuring large houses on large lots. It borders Six Mile Coulee, which provides a nice backdrop for pleasant summer evenings and recreational opportunities in the winter.
Amenities: This community is strictly residential, having no commercial services, but it’s within driving distance from the big box complexes at the south end of Mayor Magrath Drive. Residents who work at the Lethbridge Airport or its industrial park could easily enjoy a walking or cycling commute.
Prairie Garden Park is the only park in the neighbourhood, and several homes back onto its lake. The community has easy access to the coulee, which has natural wetlands at the bottom, perfect for explorative and adventurous children.
There is no bus service to Prairie Arbour Estates, but its main roadway connects with Highway 5, a major southern Alberta highway, which eventually turns into Mayor Magrath Drive, Lethbridge’s second busiest roadway.
Schools: Agnes Davidson Elementary, a French immersion school, is the nearest school to Prairie Arbour Estates, and it’s only a 5 minute drive away. An elementary school planned for South Gate will be just across the coulee. Lethbridge College is with driving and biking distance.
