Belmont

LIVE IN NORTH EAST EDMONTON

Bounded on the north by 137 Avenue, on the east by Victoria Trail, and on the west by 40 Street, Belmont shares a southern border with Kennedale Ravine. The nearby ravine allows for hiking and nature-themed recreation for families year round.

The neighborhood has historic ties to a European settlement in the area that dates back to the 1880s, but due to its distance from Edmonton’s centre, Belmont’s annexation was delayed until 1961.

Similar to the rest of Clareview, zestful development in Belmont began in the early 1970’s and the neighborhood is made up mainly of single-family homes and row houses. An area with airs of vintage, Belmont was home to one of Edmonton’s last drive-in movie theatres. Sadly, it was destroyed in the terrible tornado that struck the area in 1987.

With relatively close proximity to Clareview LRT station and major roadways like the Yellowhead Trail and Anthony Henday Drive, Belmont is an area with the quiet advantage of remote suburban life, while still offering the convenience of easy commuting to those employed in other districts of the city.
