Elsinore is a neighbourhood near the north side of Edmonton. It is part of the Castle Downs district. It is a short distance from the Canadian Forces Base Edmonton, making it an ideal area to call home for those who work there. Elsinore was named after a famous European castle, the original Elsinore Castle, found in Denmark that was made famous by Shakespeare’s play Hamlet. This Dutch renaissance-style castle was built between 1574 and1584 and after hosting a variety of uses over the centuries, was completely restored in the late 1920s.

The eastern boundary of Elsinore runs along 97 Street. This main artery extends all the way south to downtown Edmonton and passes within a few city blocks of the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT).

Elsinore contains a storm water management pond that provides an interesting water feature in the southern portion of the neighbourhood. It is used as park space by residents and additionally, provides a nice backyard setting for many single-detached homes.

Space for a school and/or park complex is reserved in the middle of the Elsinore/Chambery neighbourhoods.
