Brintnell, a residential neighbourhood in northeast Edmonton, is part of Pilot Sound. In keeping with the pilot theme, the area was named for Wilfred Brintnell, a well-known Canadian aviator of the 1950’s.

Built on what was previously farmland, this is a new development with recent construction. Virtually all of Brintnell’s homes were built in the 21st century, and virtually all are owner-occupied, detached single-family homes. A very small number of duplexes, triplexes and quadruplexes are also present.

The neighbourhood is an extremely popular choice among growing families. With almost a third of its residents under age 20, and a quarter of them in their 30’s, the demographic is young. Households tend to be larger than average, with roughly a third of the houses containing four or more residents. Because of the neighbourhood’s youth, long-term residents are non-existent. Less than 10 percent of population has resided there for longer than five years.

The Brintnell neighbourhood is defined by 167th Avenue to the north and 153rd Avenue to the south. It extends from Manning Drive, its eastern border, to 50th Street on the west.

The area is home to Edmonton Christian North East, a Christian school for grades K-9 located on 159th Avenue. Families with teenagers reaching driving age probably welcome the presence of The Alfabet Driving School, located on Brintnell Boulevard. The Brintnell Husky Market on 160th Avenue NW affords an opportunity for local shopping.

The center of neighbourhood activity, however, is Brintnell Park, which holds periodic barbecues, fairs and other community events.
