Bonnie Doon’s History

Development was slow and steady in Bonnie Doon before World War II. Afterwards, the discovery of oil near Leduc prompted tremendous growth in Edmonton. Neighbourhoods like Bonnie Doon began to fill out. Bonnie Doon’s development, and now redevelopment is still underway, due to the neighbourhood’s attractive central location and relatively permissive residential zoning.

Bonnie Doon Today

Bonnie Doon is the heart of Edmonton’s French community. The University of Alberta’s Campus Saint-Jean calls Bonnie Doon home. Its presence has given rise to a French Quarter, of sorts, including La Cité Francophone, Edmonton’s French cultural centre. The neighbourhood is also the site of one of Edmonton’s first suburban shopping centres – Bonnie Doon Shopping Centre – which still provides important commercial space within the neighbourhood today.

Bonnie Doon’s culture, access to river valley parks and trails (including the ever-popular Mill Creek Pool), and central location have made it a very desirable neighbourhood. Avenue Magazine recognized this in 2016, naming Bonnie Doon the ninth-best neighbourhood in Edmonton.
