Local Parks and Shops
One of the first things that catches the eye of new residents is that Wild Rose has an abundance of green space, including the nearby Mill Creek Ravine. Wild Rose Park and nearby Kittlitz Park sit in the middle of the neighbourhood. Wild Rose does not have any commercial space within its boundaries, but a large shopping area is located just north of 38th Avenue, with large retail stores including Home Depot, Petsmart and Best Buy. Also, the many amenities of southeast Edmonton are easily accessible. The Mill Woods Recreation Centre, which has a swimming pool and ice rink, as well as the Mill Woods library branch are within a short drive.
Freeway Access and Public Transportation
Wild Rose is near two major freeways, Whitemud Drive and Anthony Henday Drive. Whitemud is the main freeway running east to west in Edmonton, and Anthony Henday is a ring freeway around the entire city. For those who prefer to commute by public transit, the Meadows Transit Centre, a park and ride, is located just north of the neighbourhood.

Father Michael Troy Junior High School â€“ part of the Edmonton Catholic School District â€“ is the only school within the neighbourhood itself. The Velma E.
