Welcome to Alberta Avenue

With Alberta Avenue undergoing revitalization, the neighbourhood is becoming an increasingly desirable place to live. This is due to its close proximity to the downtown core, and access to amenities such as public transit, the Commonwealth Stadium Recreation Centre, the Sprucewood Library, and many family owned restaurants and bakeries. Because of its reasonable house prices, Alberta Avenue was rated the number two area in Edmonton for property investment by Avenue Magazine in 2015.

Housing styles in the neighbourhood range from small bungalows to larger two-storey homes that face streets lined with large mature trees. A strong commercial element exists along three of its major traffic corridors – 118 Avenue, Norwood Boulevard (111 Avenue), and part of 95 Street. Alberta Avenue is bounded on the north by 122 Avenue, to the south by 111 Avenue, to the east by 89 Street, and to the west by 97 Street.

Alberta Avenue’s History

The Alberta Avenue area dates back to 1894. Development happened gradually between 1906 and 1912. Edmonton’s real estate brokers and speculators capitalized on the “land boom” which was sweeping the prairies during this period. During this rapid growth period, the basic physical layout of Alberta Avenue as we know it today was established.

The name of the neighbourhood was adopted from the former designation for 118 Avenue; “Alberta Avenue” has been used since at least 1922, which was also the year the Community League was formed.

Alberta Avenue Today

Much of the revitalization efforts in Alberta Avenue are supported by the non-profit organization, Arts on the Avenue and as a result, Alberta Avenue is increasingly becoming a centre for Artists and arts activities in Edmonton. The neighbourhood has an active community league and even has a community newspaper, the Rat Creek Press. Alberta Avenue is also home to the Carrot Coffeehouse, a volunteer run community arts cafe where many local musicians and artists share their gifts with others. In addition, the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts is located at 9225 Alberta Avenue (118 Avenue). Each year the community celebrates the Kaleido Family Arts Festival and the Deep Freeze Winter Festival.
