HOLYROOD

Holyrood has many of the design features found in neighbourhoods developed during the 1950s. It is bounded on four sides by major roadways which clearly define the neighbourhood and allow residents good access to other parts of the city. Its tree lined interior streets are arranged in a modified grid pattern and incorporate several landscaped street islands. Most streets carry only local traffic, the exception being 95 Avenue and 79 Street which serve as collector roads. A school and community league hall are located in the centre of the neighbourhood.

Holyrood displays several interesting demographic traits. Over 55 percent of residents have resided in the neighbourhood for five or more years.

These characteristics are typical of a neighbourhood whose residents are stable and maturing.

The Holyrood neighbourhood has had four names since its inception in the early 1900s. The neighbourhood was called both Mount Pleasant and East Edmonton Gardens in 1912. A couple of decades later the area was called Balmoral, and in 1953, because of the duplication of subdivision names, the area was re-named Holyrood. Holyrood likely takes its name from Holyrood Abbey in Edinburgh, Scotland.
