Avonmore is named after Algernon William Yelverton, Viscount of Avonmore, an Irish priest and adventurer who stopped in Edmonton en route to an 1887 gold rush expedition in the Klondike.

The neighborhood was developed during the 1950s with the dominant structure type in the neighbourhood being the single-family house. It is bounded on the east and southeast by major arterials and on the north by a collector roadway. A prominent physical feature of the neighbourhood is its western boundary, Mill Creek Ravine. The ravine connects to the North Saskatchewan River Valley park system for excellent recreational opportunities.

Avonmore is quaint with its community newsletter, the un-pack and play program, a community garage sale, and winter yoga classes. There is even a baby-sitter registry within the community league.

There is no public school operating in Avonmore anymore and sadly the building that used to house one is now abandoned. The Avonmore Park however, is still a great place for families to enjoy some outdoor recreational fun.

Argyll Road has great restaurants to enjoy such as Brit’s Fish and Chips, a local favorite, and Boston Pizza.
