This is why we work hard to offer you beautiful homes in idyllic locations.
Some communities have character that is defined by their look, others have personality based on the smells of the flora. But there are some communities that are as much driven by the people who live there. They might be small, but they are mighty, and within those communities remain great options for young and mature families alike. Waterways is one such neighbourhood. It is filled with family and community oriented people with a colourful flair.
Waterways backyard is located along the west bank of the Clearwater River just south of where this river meets the Athabasca River. As one of the innermost neighbourhoods of Fort McMurray, This community is centrally located near the downtown area for urban dwellers to enjoy the easy walk to their favourite restaurant, bar, entertainment venue, or just to see the sites of Fort McMurray.
With lovely views of the river families can enjoy the nearby Tom Weber boat launch, outdoor spray park, baseball diamonds, and Heritage Park and Village keeping the history of Fort McMurray alive. Locals enjoy the benefits of active river side living where they can hike, bike, fish and enjoy winter activities right out their own back door.
Pets welcome! Toss a ball for your pup in the fun filled dog park.

The Alberta and Great Waterways Railway was extended to Waterways in 1921. Waterways was the northernmost point on the North American railroad grid until service was extended to Hay River, Northwest Territories. Cargo for destinations further north was shipped to Waterways, and then transferred to barges. Fleets of tugboats were then employed to take these barges to destinations within the Mackenzie River watershed. Legislation authorizing the construction of the rail line was passed in 1909. In the 1960s, the more northerly Hay River, on Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories, became the northern terminus of the rail grid
