About GEF Meadowlark Place

One of the prime attractions of the Meadowlark Place Lodge is that it is all on one main floor with 58 accessible, single, and double lodge units. The lodge exudes a close-knit, family atmosphere. The mature, park-like grounds surrounding the building provide a beautiful backdrop for residents to enjoy year-round with a beautiful gazebo in the south yard. The common areas include a games room complete with shuffleboard, exercise room, hair salon, crafts room, and card-operated laundry facilities.

With an Activity and Wellness Coordinator on-site, there is always a fun program going on. Resident favourites include playing a giant crossword, enjoying coffee in the java club, working out in exercise classes, playing bingo games, and socializing on pub nights.

About this neighbourhood

Meadowlark and Elmwood is an older residential neighbourhood with mature trees and shrubbery. The area is accessible for walking in the neighbourhood safely. The Meadowlark Lodge is nestled in a well-kept, park-like setting.

The neighborhood is very community based. Schools, daycares, and organized children’s groups, such as Sparks, are all around and often visit the lodge. On those visiting days, there is heightened joy in the lodge. It is a delight seeing the groups walk to and from the lodge for the visit.

What's nearby:

Meadowlark Mall is nearby and within walking distance, which includes shopping, medical centres, doctors’ offices, and a lab. West Edmonton Mall is also close. There is an ETS bus service on 87 Avenue and at Meadowlark Mall. The City of Edmonton is also in the process of construction for the newest line of the LRT.
