There are no schools in Argyll, being a smaller neighborhood. However, Hazeldean Elementary School and W.P. Wagner High School lie nearby. More about Argyll...
Argyll was annexed by Edmonton in 1913, and had consisted of farmland The area, however, remained substantially undeveloped until it was re-plotted and developed in the 1950s. More than four in five homes were constructed prior to 1960.
The Mill Creek ravine, which straddles the neighbourhood, hosts many old trestle bridges that were part of the old Edmonton, Yukon and Pacific Railway line, which was completed in 1902 and connected Edmonton and Strathcona. Passenger service was provided until 1928, an the railway continued to connect river valley-area industries to south Edmonton, where freight came in and out province-wide.
Today, Argyll is made up of mostly single family homes. It is a secluded, quiet neighbourhood that becomes more active in the summer, as nearby residents travel to Argyll Park. The Edmonton BMX Association maintains a great track at the park, while the Argyll Velodrome Association runs the nearby concrete track that was built for cycling during the 1978 Commonwealth Games. In the same park, Argyll Community League operates a community hall and playground. The Edmonton Japanese Community Association also calls the community building home.
With the above facilities and access to Mill Creek Ravine, Argyll is a great home base for any cyclist. With the ravine trails, you can be downtown in about 25 minutes. Argyll’s location, mature trees, park access, and access to nearby businesses make it an outstanding neighbourhood in southeast Edmonton.
