Ward 7


  • Abbottsfield was once owned by E.F. Carey, one of Edmonton's most prominent 19th centurycitizens. Located in the City's northeast and annexed City in 1961, actual development begannearly a decade later when a landfill on the site was transformed into Rundle Park. Aneighbourhood of mainly multi-family dwellings, Abbottsfield is popular with young families for itsaccess to the City's employment and commercial centres.
  • One of the city's older residential neighbourhoods, Alberta Avenue is located in the inner city. A strong commercial element exists along three of its major traffic corridors, while the streets linedwith mature trees and the variety of housing styles -- mostly on small residential lots -- reflect theneighbourhood's WWI-era development.
  • Previously part of North Edmonton, Balwin was annexed in 1912 and developed primarily in the1940s and 50s. Most homes in the area are single-family dwellings, which are served by excellentschool and park facilities as well as Londonderry Mall, one of the city's largest. Commercial landfringes the neighbourhood.
  • Beacon Heights was one neighbourhood that made up the area called Beverly. After 1910 rich coal seams were discovered and coal mining spurred development. In 1913 the area was incorporated as the Village of Beverly and in 1914 became a town. In 1961 Beverly amalgamated with the City of Edmonton to later be divided into neighbourhoods including Beacon Heights. The character of Beacon Heights comes from the combination of low and high density housing and the easy access to commercial routes and services.
  • One of the City's smaller neighbourhoods, Bellevue was developed prior to 1950. EastglenComposite High School, which serves students in much of east central Edmonton, is a dominantfeature of the area (though a high proportion of area residents are over the age of 60 or retirees). Bellevue is highlighted by stunning views of the river valley and the city skyline.
