Alberta Avenue

Community

Located within Edmonton’s inner city, Alberta Avenue is a pre-World War II community. It was developed in the early 1900s and was once home to the Great Western Garment Company and the Norwood Foundry. Alberta Avenue has an active community league that was established in 1922 along with a community newspaper, the Rat Creek Press. It’s home to The Carrot Community Arts Coffee House which has become a community gathering place. Arts on the Ave is a non-profit currently supporting revitalization efforts in the rea and as a result, the area has become a bit of a hub for artists and arts activities in Edmonton. 

Alberta Avenue is close to the downtown core, with easy access to public transit and a variety of housing styles ranging from small bungalows to larger two-stories. It is bounded on the north by 122 Avenue, on the West by 97 Street, on the south by 111 Avenue (Norwood Boulevard), and on the east by 89 Street.
