Cy Becker: One of Edmonton’s Best New Communities

Find me on:

Did you know the Canadian Home Builders Association – Edmonton Region recognized Qualico Communities’ Cy Becker neighbourhood as the best new community in 2016? Since then, this blossoming new community has taken flight and continues to reach new heights as more families put down roots here.

Located in Northeast Edmonton, Cy Becker kicked off its first stages of development in 2014. It was named after a famous Alberta bush pilot and war hero, so naturally, the community is themed around aviation. The community’s logo was designed to mimic a moving propeller, and the playground in the community’s All Seasons Park celebrates human flight with its design.

But what makes a community truly the best in the Greater Edmonton Area? Here are six reasons Cy Becker is one of Edmonton’s best new communities to live in.

Variety of Homes

Whether you are upgrading, downsizing, or buying your first home, there is something in Cy Becker for everyone. Offering single family and duplex style homes, as well as townhomes, this community suits a number of different lifestyles. You can feel confident knowing there is an option that’s right for you.

Edmonton’s newest splash park is one of the All Seasons Park’s many features. Here, families can cool down on hot summer days playing among the many spouts, sprays and water features.

The All Seasons Park also includes a large playground built on a large rubber surface to ensure safety for the kids. A picnic area provides more summer fun, as well as a promenade that transforms into a skating rink, and a toboggan hill to be enjoyed in the winter. The All Seasons Park is not the only park in the community, with a smaller pocket playground located to the south.

If splashing in water isn’t your idea of a good time, there are more than two kilometres of multi-use trails throughout the community to enjoy for walking, running or riding your bike. Take a peaceful walk through the 15 acres of municipal reserve, including two beautiful storm ponds, an urban forest, and a footbridge.

Great Local Schools

Picture this: living in a vibrant new community with impressive schooling options so you can give your children the best education possible. The community of Cy Becker is lucky to have two great K-9 schools nearby. Christ the King is part of the Edmonton Catholic School System and Dr. Donald Massey School is the closest public school in neighbouring Hollick-Kenyon. You can find more information about each school and the programs they offer on their website. 

Plenty of Amenities Nearby

Whether you want to catch a movie or visit a greenhouse, go grocery shopping or have a nice dinner out with friends, Cy Becker has everything you’ll need only a short distance away. Manning Town Centre offers a movie theatre, retail stores and several restaurants. Other commercial areas close by include Clareview Town Centre and Hollick Kenyon Landing.

For those that lead an active lifestyle, Edmonton’s newest recreation centre is located only a few minutes away. Clareview Recreation Centre offers an Aquatic Centre, gymnasiums, an indoor track, a large fitness centre and more. The Londonderry Fitness and Leisure Centre (opening back up in March 2019) is only a few communities away to the south, giving you options if you want to stop on your way from work or after picking your kids up from school.

With the Northeast Emergency Health Centre nearby, you can sleep well knowing help is close by if you ever need it. It’s open 24 hours for emergencies.

Easily Accessible

Located off 167 Avenue at Manning Drive, Cy Becker is situated in a highly accessible area of Edmonton. While located in the city’s northeast, downtown Edmonton is only 15 minutes away.

Cy Becker’s easy access to Anthony Henday Drive provides homeowners with access to the entire city with ease. Once the northeast portion of Anthony Henday Drive opens later this year, Cy Becker will be in one of the most accessible communities in the city.

Commuters will also be happy to know that the Clareview Transit Centre is a quick bus ride from the community.

Qualico Communities is proud to create the best communities for families just like yours. It is an honour to have Cy Becker recognized as an award-winning community in North Edmonton, and part of our success is thanks to the many great residents who believed in our vision and continue to call it home.
