WEINLOS

Weinlos is one of the 27 neighbourhoods of Mill Woods. The Government of Alberta assembled the Mill Woods land bank in 1970. Mill Woods was named for Mill Creek which crossed it and the groves of Parkland forest trees that stood there. The entire area encompassed by Mill Woods is nearly 25 square kilometers. Development of the neighbourhoods in the northwest portion of Mill Woods began in the mid 1970s and development of neighbourhoods in the southeast followed. More about Weinlos...

Located just east of the centre of Mill Woods, Weinlos began to experience development in the 1970s but the bulk of development occurred through the 1980s. Low density residential development is the dominant land use in the neighbourhood and single detached homes account for just under 70% of all residential units within the community. Higher density housing is located adjacent to the central school and park site and along the arterial roadway that forms the eastern border of the neighbourhood.

The internal streets of Weinlos are arranged in a curvilinear pattern. A collector roadway passes through the centre of the neighbourhood and past an elementary school. The neighbourhood does not contain any commercial land uses, but residents have good access to the Town Centre Mall situated directly west of Weinlos. In September 1992, Edmonton’s Kate Chegwin Junior High School was officially opened. In 1899 Kate Chegwin left Ontario and ventured west to her first teaching job in Edmonton. In 1909, she was the first woman ever to hold a supervisory position in the Edmonton public school district, she was the first female vice-principal in Edmonton (1911) and the first female principal (1914).

Weinlos was named after Dr. Morris Weinlos (1902-1980) and Dr. Harry Weinlos (d. 1977) who were prominent surgeons and active members of local arts and humanitarian initiatives within Edmonton. The Weinlos brothers immigrated to Canada from Russia in 1921, obtained advanced medical degrees and practiced medicine in the Edmonton area from the 1930s onwards.
