Blackburne

LIVE IN SOUTH WEST EDMONTON

The Blackburne area was annexed to the City of Edmonton on January 1, 1982 and was developed from the 1990s onwards. The vast majority of the land within the area is designated for residential purposes, with single-detached housing being the dominant housing form.

Blackburne Park is located to the south edge of the neighbourhood overlooking Blackmud Creek Ravine. Blackburne is located immediately to the south of the Bearspaw neighbourhood and to the east of the Richford neighbourhood. It is bounded on the north by the Anthony Henday ring road, on the west by 111th Street, on the south by the Blackmud Ravine, and on the east by Calgary Trail (Queen Elizabeth II Highway). The only entrance into the neighbourhood is located at its eastern border along Blackburne Drive. The neighbourhood name “Blackburne” was derived from Blackmud Creek, which runs across the southern edge of the community, and in reference to “burne” which is an old English word for stream or river.

It is nestled within the Seven Oaks Golf Course and with just under 500 homes, the community is family-oriented with access to a large meadow just south of the Blackburne Creek playground and park, as well as a pleasant walkway along the north edge of Blackmud Creek, ideal for morning runs.
