Estate falls into three distinct areas, North, South and
West. Each area has it's own character and distinct flavour. Residents of

well treed area, which benefits from Henderson Lake Park. As the name
implies, the park contains a large lake, and is adjacent to a golf
course. The south is preferred by residents who want to be close to the
city center. New real estate development is taking place at Fairmont,
which is itself adjacent to many new stores, including Costco, Wal Mart
and Home Depot.

well established area, and contains the Lethbridge industrial zone, making
it popular with people who work there. The new Uplands Real estate
development is starting to push the northern boundaries of the city

being less than 20 years old. The west side also features spacious
Nicholas Sheran Park. The Old Man River separates West Lethbridge from the
city, however, the 6-lane Whoop-Up Drive bridge, and the Highway 2 (Crows
Nest Trail) 4-lane bridge, ensure easy access to downtown Lethbridge.
