About Our Community
Blackmud Creek Community League (BCCL) was formed in 2006 and includes the neighborhoods of Allard, Blackburne Creek, Blackmud Creek (aka Southbrook), Callaghan, Cashman, Cavanagh, and Richford: league map. A new residential neighbourhoood currently under development called Cavanagh will also be part of BCCL. Our closest neighbour is the Heritage Point Community League.
We've made up a one-page fact sheet for sharing: BCCL Fact Sheet.

The Edmonton Transit System Trip Planner utility is a helpful tool for getting where you need to go, on time. The nearest LRT station is Century Park (111th Street & 23rd Avenue). The station includes over 1,200 stalls for Park & Ride. Allard and Callaghan are serviced by the #47 and #347 bus routes. Blackburne is serviced by the #48 bus route. Southbrook is serviced by the #49 bus route.
We have an extensive set of trails along Blackmud Creek, and worked with the City of Edmonton to complete a community walking map for our league and part of the neighbouring league, Heritage Point.
