Rutherford was first developed in the mid 2000’s as part of the larger Heritage Valley development, and is named for Alexander Cameron Rutherford (1857-1941) who was the first Premier of Alberta when a majority Liberal government was elected in 1905. Rutherford was designed to accommodate a mixture of low and medium density housing units with space for recreational activities, institutional and commercial land uses. The extensive pedestrian network throughout the neighbourhood is an important design feature, with a utility corridor that diagonally runs the length of the community. This corridor provides an important pedestrian spine which connects the various walkways to activity nodes dispersed throughout the community.
There are a variety of parks and the Virginia Park Woodland that create focal points in the neighbourhood. It has its own school in the South central aspect of the community and is surrounded on all sides by other residential communities. Ellerslie Road is the nearest major roadway for the neighbourhood, whose enclosed nature gives it additional safety for children via reduced traffic and speeds.
There is an HOA in place for West Rutherford although in order to access their website, you must be registered and be a resident. To discover if you are purchasing a home governed by the West Rutherford HOA, ask your real estate agent to check the title.
There are plenty of places to escape to on a rainy or snowy day if you live in Rutherford. From the John Walter Museum, to South Edmonton Common and the new Currents Shopping Centre, you’ll always have plenty to do.
There are several arenas nearby for skating and Fort Edmonton Park for when the weather warms up. Regardless of the season, residents will love the proximity to several different recreation centres, such as the City Arts Centre, that provide fitness and aquatic facilities, as well as family oriented programs.
The location of this neighbourhood also means you are close to the Edmonton International Airport and the main route to Calgary, Calgary Trail, is just outside your front door.

There is a lot to be said for established neighbourhoods. The communities are complete which means you don’t have to worry about landscaping and parks being completed. There is no ongoing major construction to worry about or deal with, and the sod has settled.
Rutherford offers a mixture of single-family homes, townhomes and row houses with a few strategically placed multifamily dwellings. The area has great transit in place and offers a prime location for living in Edmonton. You can get anywhere in the City fairly easily from the Rutherford community, making commutes to work or leisure activities a breeze.
