Dickinsfield is an established and small neighbourhood bordering the Birchwood Trails. Forget that you live in a city while you wander these stunning trails. Two local schools, both centrally located, offer many outdoor recreational sports areas. This quiet, family friendly neighbourhood is made up of mostly single family homes. However, buyers have many options for large yards, garage options, even basement suites. This area would be an excellent option for first home buyers.
Dickinsfield sits on the north side of Fort McMurray, with access through Thickwood to the south and Timberlea to the north. This neighbourhood is one of the earlier established areas within Fort McMurray. Green spaces with mature trees throughout make this a beautiful and natural district.
Single family homes appear most often in this neighbourhood. Here, buyers can choose from many additional options. For example, look for large lots with spacious backyards, large detached or attached garages, or parking. With many single family homes in every shape and style you could think of, this neighbourhood has options for most budgets.
Dickinsfield has two schools with large play areas, a soccer field, basketball court, and baseball diamond. Furthermore, the schools and outdoor sports areas are centrally located for the enjoyment of the whole community. Additionally, the lovely Birch Wood Trails run alone the outskirts of this neighbourhood. These trails offer paved and gravel surfaces for walking, biking and enjoying nature in every season.
The small community enjoys several small, central shops. This means that residents enjoy calming walks along the quiet streets. With easy access to Confederation Way and Thickwood Boulevard, Dickinsfield residents reach shopping and dining destinations within minutes. These accesses also provide direct routes to both downtown Fort McMurray and Oil Sand sites.
