Bearspaw is a residential neighbourhood located in south west Edmonton and is named after the Stony Indian Chief Masgwaahisd (Bearspaw), who signed Band Treaty Number 7 at Blackfoot Crossing in 1877. It was through Bear’s Paw’s authority that armed confrontation over the treaty signing negotiations was averted.


The neighbourhood is bounded on the west by Blackmud Creek Ravine, to the south by Anthony Henday Drive, and to the east by Calgary Trail/Gateway Boulevard.

Neighbourhood Facts:

Most of the residential construction in Bearspaw occurred during the 1980s and was fully completed by the early 1990’s.  7 out of 10 homes in the community are single family dwellings and the neighbourhood is  90% owner occupied, making this a great place to purchase a family home.

Parks and Green Space:

 The Big Bear Park, a large hill/cliff, provides access to the woods on the banks of Blackmud Creek Ravine, and is referred to as ‘the Ravine’ by the residents. The Ravine provides walking trails and easy nature access for the inhabitants of Bearspaw to enjoy.
