Aspen Park Is A “Hidden Gem”

There is a small community located in Manitoba’s Interlake called Aspen Park. It is truly a “hidden gem” that I came across, by accident, several years ago and shortly thereafter relocated to.About 14 years ago, a friend – a fellow realtor and I were exploring the Interlake in search of the Arnes golf course (which has since closed). We couldn’t get on the course that day, but they told us about another small golf course located at the Old Air Force Base in Gimli. While searching for this other golf course, we accidentally entered the community of Aspen Park, off Hwy 231, about 3 km west of the town of Gimli.As we had never heard of Aspen Park, we both were quite surprised to see all the homes, lovely shade trees, swimming pool, playgrounds, and a central recreation building. When a neighbor discovered us looking in the window of a home with a “For Sale” sign on it, he invited us in to see his condo. He explained a lot about the condo development and how it was once an Air Force Base, with 194 units of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, each with a single detached garage.As we viewed the whole community, I told my friend that I would live in it one day and that statement proved to be true.13 years ago, a three bedroom condo cost $55,000 – $67,000. Today, three bedroom condos sell for $150, 000 to $165,000. The amenities within Aspen Park are wonderful.  There is an outdoor pool, playgrounds for the children, exercise room, party room to rent, library, pool tables, and organized activities such as floor curling, floor shuffle, cards, pot luck suppers and picnics.  Satellite TV, and Municipal Sewer and Water is included in the condo fees and high speed internet is available. There is no age restriction, and pets are welcome when leashed and cared after.Many retired farmers, people with large properties to maintain, young people starting out, and single people, have found this is the perfect location for them. Grass is cut, snow removed, hedges are trimmed and roofs and gutters are maintained as part of the low condo fees. A 2 Bedroom unit currently has a monthly Condo Fee set at $199.03, while a 3 Bedroom Unit runs at $278.74.I highly recommend to anyone house hunting in the Interlake that they visit Aspen Park themselves and see all the benefits of living in the Interlakes’ “Hidden Gem.”
