KIRKNESS

Kirkness is located in the Clareview district. The corridor provides an open space buffer along the west boundary of the neighbourhood to separate the residents from the CNR/LRT right-of-way. The Edmonton LRT uses the rail line as far as the Clareview station, located just south of the neighbourhood. The LRT provides Kirkness residents with quick and easy access to central and south Edmonton. More about Kirkness...
