In collaboration with the Lethbridge Historical Society, Melcor Developments designed Legacy Ridge to celebrate the area’s women pioneers. Each street is appropriately named after one of these trailblazers, with each converging onto Mildred Dobbs Boulevard.
Legacy Ridge is bordered by nature’s bounty with 43 acres of beautiful green space. The west side is cradled by the Alexander Wilderness Park, a 255 hectare environmental reserve that offers all sorts of outdoor opportunities. Hike the naturalized trail system that ties into Pavan Park in the north and Peenaquim Park to the south. After that, rest under the shoulders of the coulee cliffs and drink in the Oldman River valley.
To the south, Elma Groves Park welcomes families with a landscaped pond and a playground. Further north in the community, residents can take in a book or share a picnic at Elizabeth McKillop Park. This park features a central pergola and a seating area with commemorative plaques that celebrate pioneer women.
