The neighbourhood has really unfolded.
We discovered after we moved in that the Drift Food Truck people run the restaurant in there (Shamrock Curling Club). We go at least once a week. It seems like everyone in the whole neighbourhood with kids meet at the curling rink on Friday nights and the kids just run wild, and we eat Drift and drink craft beer. That's unexpected!
And they have Edmonton's littlest folk fest. Just over in the park, they organize a tiny folk fest. Set-up a stage and we do it all potluck. There's music all day and night - and it's right there!
We have the desire to be close to the ravine but also a desire to be central. Whyte Ave is right there and the bike lanes connect, so we can get all the way to the Farmers' Market without going on streets. Tyler is an extremely committed transit user. Some days it's the LRT, somedays it's buses, some days it's biking. With the funicular, it's allowed us to use the ravine to get downtown.
