Beacon Heights

LIVE IN NORTH EAST EDMONTON

The neighborhood of Beacon Heights was originally part of the town of Beverly until its amalgamation with Edmonton in 1961. As such, Beacon Heights has strong historical ties to the coal-mining industry that was once dominant in the area.

It was around 1910 when development first began due to the discovery of coal in the area, and by 1914 it Beacon Heights had its first 1000 residents, making it one of Edmonton’s oldest neighborhoods.

Beacon Heights is bounded on the south by 118 Avenue, on the west by 50 Street, on the north by 122 Avenue, and on the east by 34 Street. It is primarily made up of older single-family dwellings, many of which predate the area’s amalgamation. Most of these homes are owner-occupied thus giving the community an established and non-transient feel.

Residents of the Beacon Heights area can enjoy access to businesses along the eastern end of 118 Avenue. Nearby Abottsfield Mall conveniently offers family restaurants, a senior drop-in centre, health care services such as family physicians and dentists as well as a bus terminal on site
