Beaumaris

LIVE IN NORTH WEST EDMONTON

Named after a 13th century Welsh castle, Beaumaris is located in Edmonton’s north side and bounded on the north by Beaumaris Road and 160 Avenue. Along its south border runs 153 Avenue, and on the east side 97 Street making for easy commuting downtown.

Development began in the 1970s and has continued since then, with the majority of building taking place from 1970 to 1985. With its mix of single-detached homes, low-rises and row houses, Beaumaris is called home by a larger than average Arab community, 6% as opposed to the city average of 1%, and is considered an older community with 43% of residents over the age of 50. The neighborhood bears features in its design that reference the castle it is named after. For example, several lots contained in an area of land that extends into Lake Beaumaris mimic the plan of a medieval keep’s moat. The lake which was officially opened on September 15, 1979, means “beautiful marsh” and was the first artificial storm water lake ever installed in Edmonton.

Residents of Beaumaris can enjoy convenient shopping at Lake Beaumaris Mall or a light jog around the lake itself. Castle Downs Park is nearby and perfect for active families. The park located on the borderline of Beaumaris and Dunluce boasts a playground, spray park, picnic sites, gazebo, outdoor rink and sports fields, recreation centre as well as a YMCA facility.
