The Ridge in Courtenay is Home to Families of All Ages

"We love living here!" is a phrase that at 1stView, we hear over and over from residents of The Ridge, a family-friendly neighbourhood, now selling Phase 3 homes and lots in Courtenay, B.C. 

This remarkable multi-generational community is made up of young families, empty nesters and seniors. And with many of the homes featuring secondary suites, many of generations of one family can live together.

The Ridge has designed this development with community in mind. One great example is the centrally-located, grassy park. Younger kids love spending time on the playground, while the tweens and teens, and even the adults, enjoy a game of soccer, frisbee or just tossing the ball around. It is a meeting point for everyone to enjoy. If you are new to the community, you will be welcomed with open arms. 

Brianna and Jeremy have shared their experience living at The Ridge with us. Here is just part of their story

“Last night we went to the local park here, only a few minutes from our home and there were four other families at the park. The kids ran towards each other and played together and we had a visit with the neighbours….. we all know each other’s names, the children’s’ names and we even know the dogs’ names! Our children feel very comfortable going to the park, and we know that they are safe in our neighbourhood. We visit the park daily and sometimes multiple times on the same day. We feel a great sense of community here.

“Life at The Ridge is very family-friendly, there is a nice mix of young families who interact with each other, retirees and other residents of all ages. The community is being built to a high standard and there is a relaxing atmosphere in the neighbourhood. We love living at The Ridge!”
