Central Edmonton Neighbourhood Information

Alberta Avenue


One of the oldest neighbourhoods in Edmonton, Alberta Avenue’s bulk of development occured in or around the 1st World War era. It is bordered by 122nd Ave on the north, 97th Street on the west, 111th Avenue on the south, and 89th Street on the east.

It is a lower income neighbourhood demographically, with about 1 household in 3 having an average household income of less than $20000 per year in 2001. The area has been seeing more development recently, however, and is attempting to become a stop for the local arts community.

Before the acceptance of the grid system in 1914, Alberta Avenue was the name of 118th Avenue. Sometimes called the Avenue of Champions or Heroes (the latter in respect to the Canadian army, as it is there route back to base from the airport), it was classically a route between the City of Edmonton and the Town of Beverly.

Back in the past, when Beverly was still it’s own municipality seperate from Edmonton, the part of Alberta Avenue in Beverly was considered the central business district. Following the point in history when Beverly, amalgamated with Edmonton on December 31, 1961, the business district went into a period of downturn.

Beginning near NAIT (Northern Alberta Institute of Technology) and extending about 75 city blocks until it turns into Victoria Trail, Alberta Avenue boasts several local landmarks. They include Nortlands Park and Rexall Place, home to the Edmonton Oilers and various local events.

Bonnie Doon, a neighbourhood located in the southern part of central Edmonton in Alberta, Canada, serves as the core of the Franco-Albertan culture and is home to the University of Alberta’s Faculte Saint-Jean. The University is the only french university west of the province of Manitoba, and is located on Rue Marie-Anne Gaboury. This university dates back to the first decade of the 1900’s, when it served as a Catholic school for boys.

Originally a part of the City of Strathcona, the western portion of the Bonnie Doon neighbourhood was integrated as a part of Edmonton in 1912 when Edmonton and Strathcona were merged. Edmonton soon acquired the remaining land in the neighbourhood in 1913, thus attaining the Bonnie Doon neighbourhood as a whole. The North Saskatchewan River and Mill Creek Ravine bind this neighbourhood to the north to the west. Whyte Avenue borders the south, with 83 Street to the east.

The first major shopping mall in Edmonton, Bonnie Doon Shopping Centre, is also located in this neighbourhood.
