EVERGREEN

The Evergreen neighbourhood is a mobile home park located in northeast Edmonton, west of Meridian Street and north of 167th Avenue. The park, developed predominantly in the 1970s, is a thriving community of well over a thousand people today and the vast majority of homes are owner-occupied. The neighbourhood also has an active community league and a community hall facility. A natural area and creek, which forms part of the Horse Hills ravine system that drains into the North Saskatchewan River Valley, borders the northeastern side of this community providing residents with access to natural open space. A pipeline corridor that runs diagonally through the community provides a linear park with pathways through Evergreen. More about Evergreen...

The internal road network is a modified grid with some cul-de-sacs. A small commercial space is located in the southwestern portion of the neighbourhood, but there are no major commercial areas in the immediate vicinity. The neighbourhood is surrounded by farms on all sides, and is close to Edmonton’s market garden area located to the east and north. A Canadian National rail line runs just northwest of the neighbourhood forming a distinctive boundary within the rural northeast part of Edmonton.

On July 31st, 1987 the neighbourhood was tragically struck by a tornado that swept through the Edmonton area, killing fourteen people in Evergreen, and twenty-seven people in the Edmonton region in total, and destroying over 200 mobile homes. At the time of this event, referred to as “Black Friday”, there were approximately 1,700 people living in the park. Since that time, the number of residents and mobile homes has decreased slightly. The 20th anniversary of this event was commemorated in 2007.
