Aurora’s envious location is prime because it is connected to everything you need; yet far enough removed from the urban noise and light pollution that hinders enjoyment of a natural sky.


Away from the bright lights of the big city, Aurora is the perfect place to get caught up in the cosmos – without leaving south Edmonton.

In Aurora, the low-light LED street lights limit the light pollution of the city so that your family can enjoy looking up and seeing constellations year-round.

Unbeatable Location

Aurora is easily accessible by the Anthony Henday and Ellerslie Road making it easy for you to get to anywhere you need to go. 

Aurora is also conveniently located a stone’s throw away from the retail hub of South Edmonton Common, which will satisfy all of your shopping, entertainment and dining needs.

Family friendly Neighbourhood

In addition to the playground, green and other summer fun, residents of Aurora also enjoy a natural pond, multi-use trails and a star gazing platform – perfect for days and nights of family fun! 

Residents of Aurora enjoy a different perspective on the world.
