Residents of SunRidge pride themselves on their earth friendly approach to sustainability and every element of this subdivision was designed to minimize environmental harm and work towards a greener future. SunRidge was Canada’s first entirely Built Green community. It further distinguishes itself as unique with its natural wetland park areas and pond skirted trail system and the solar powered walkway lighting. If you feel a special connection to the natural environment, you will certainly have that in common with your SunRidge neighbours!
Schools servicing SunRidge include St. Patrick Fine Arts Elementary, Dr. Gerald B. Probe Elementary, G.S. Lakie Middle School, Chinook High and the Catholic Central High West Campus. The University of Lethbridge is also just a short drive or bike ride away.
