About This Community
With the Whitemud Creek Ravine wrapping around its western and northern borders and the secluded design of the neighbourhood, Blue Quill Estates is one of the safest and most private neighbourhoods in the city. More than half of the homes in this up-scale community were built in the 1970’s, contributing to the unique architecture and layout of the community. Both Blue Quill Estates and the neighbouring Blue Quill were named in honour of Chief Blue Quill of the Saddle Lake Band of central Alberta.
