Prior to undergoing urban development in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the Blackmud
Creek area was in agricultural use. The plan for Blackmud Creek was intended to take
advantage of existing natural features within the area and to create an attractive,
affordable residential community.
Blackmud Creek is a predominantly low-density residential community, with higher density housing and commercial land uses located at the edges of the neighbourhood along 111th Street and Ellerslie Road SW. Medium-density townhouses are located between the commercial area and apartments in the northwest, and low-density single-family homes are located towards the interior of Blackmud Creek.
Interior roads consist of loops and cul-de-sacs, which create small residential enclaves within Blackmud Creek and reduce through traffic. This neighbourhood is named after Blackmud Creek, which borders the community along the south and east.
Sports and Recreation
A natural area of mixed tree species is preserved in the Virginia Park Woodland, which is located in the northeastern portion of the neighbourhood and provides habitat for local species of flora and fauna.
Calgary Trail, Gateway Boulevard, Ellerslie Road, Anthony Henday Drive, and Highway 2 are all within a short distance, providing accessibility to amenities in the rest of the city, such as South Edmonton Common, and the Edmonton International Airport.
Blackmud Creek is bounded on the west by the James Mowatt Trail , and on the north by Ellerslie Road. To the east and south, the neighbourhood overlooks the Blackmud Creek Ravine.
