Esker Park is the first “super community” from the Shane Homes Group of Companies, entirely designed and developed by Shane Communities. This community is tailored to accommodate various life stages and will offer a variety of homestyles including townhouses, duplexes, laned-homes, front drive homes, and a multi-family site.

The meaning behind the name

The vision for Esker Park began back in 2009 when the land was purchased, with the planning and community development beginning in 2014. Artfully planned and nestled atop a landscape sculpted by glaciers, this community has been 22,000 years in the making. The name “Esker Park” pays homage to the historical roots of the glacier sculpted land formed over thousands of years. An “esker” is the winding ridge formed by a glacier, and “park” represents the central focal point of the community — an outdoor park space for gatherings, connection, and belonging.

“We share in the privilege of calling this extraordinary landscape home, marked by a glacier. Following nature’s past, we are dedicated to this community leaving a lasting mark. This is reflected in every aspect of this bespoke community – from the thoughtful integration of open green spaces and environmental reserves to the planned amenities, including a park, ensuring a welcoming and personalized experience for every resident,” says Shane Wenzel, President and CEO of Shane Homes Group of Companies.

Located within the Glacier Ridge Area Restructure Plan and west of Symons Valley Road, Esker Park is strategically positioned close to essential amenities such as the Beacon Hill, Nolan Hill and Sage Hill shopping centres, all of which boast a variety of dining, beauty, grocery, and wellness options. 

Breaking Ground

Our groundbreaking took place on April 19th, 2024. Prospective homeowners will be pleased to know that presales for Esker Park are set to begin in the Fall 2024, with the first showhome expected to open in Spring 2025. “As we look forward to the presale launch, we remain focused on creating impactful connections and enduring the beauty of this landscape, setting new standards in the industry, and enriching lives through our work,” says Wenzel. We are not just the builder and developer of Esker Park; we’re your neighbours, your dependable friends, and your trusted advisors. We look forward to delivering an exceptional experience to you.
