Belmead

LIVE IN WEST EDMONTON

The Belmead neighbourhood, located in the western part of the city, is a popular location for families. It is a demographically younger residential community in which almost a third of the residents are under 20 years old and more than half of the households are made up of at least three members. It is a fairly well-established neighbourhood, with close to three quarters of the dwellings occupied by the owners. Almost half of the houses in Belmead are detached single-family homes, with row houses – and a sprinkling of low-rise apartments – constituting the rest. Roughly one-fifth of the population in Belmead is Asian, which helps to impart a vibrant, multi-cultural feel to the area.

Belmead extends from Anthony Henday Drive on the west to 178th Street to the east. The north boundary is defined by 95th Avenue; Belmead is bounded on the south by 87th Avenue. The neighbourhood’s convenient location gives residents easy access to the Edmonton International Airport via Henday Drive. The West Edmonton Mall, a mecca for shopping, fine dining and entertainment, is also nearby.

Local services and recreational facilities are well-represented in this family-oriented, bustling community. A pharmacy, two different dental care clinics and a physical therapy facility lie within Belmead’s borders. A parochial school, Saint Benedict Catholic School, is located to the south of 93rd Ave NW, with a variety of synagogues, churches and chapels present throughout the neighbourhood as well. The Belmead Community League on 182nd Street offers recreational activities — such as summer camps, an outdoor ice skating rink, and crafting nights — as well as community awareness programs. Senior citizens can find a wide range of services and activities at The Westend Seniors Activity Centre, located in Frank and Etta Wilde Park.
