LIVE IN NORTH CENTRAL
Bounded on the south by the North Saskatchewan River Valley, the west boundary of Cromdale is 84 Street and its northwest boundary is the CN Rail right-of- way. The neighborhood is bisected by the Kinnaird ravine, which together with the nearby River Valley provides excellent recreational opportunities. This also makes the neighborhood’s street layout somewhat unusual.
Cromdale is one of Edmonton’s oldest neighborhoods and development in the area began after a streetcar line was extended from Jasper Avenue. Modern transit access is now available in the form of the Stadium LRT station.
Many of the single-family homes that originally dominated the neighborhood have been replaced by low-rise apartment buildings and for this reason a very high percentage of the neighborhood’s residents rent rather than own. Many residents report having moved to Cromdale only within the past couple of years.
This may account for why the neighborhood’s residents are slightly younger than average for Edmonton, with about 56% under 40.
To the northeast of Cromdale, lies Borden Park, a historic area that has existed for more than 100 years. Home to Edmonton’s first zoo, Borden Park still offers citizens a natural respite within the city and near the river.
