Falconer Heights

LIVE IN SOUTH EDMONTON

Falconer Heights, a residential neighbourhood in southwest Edmonton, was named in honor of James F. Falconer, a noted politician active in the mid-20th century. Residential development began after 1985, and was completed by the late 1990’s.

Although detached single-family homes are predominant in this newer community, one in four residences are apartments and apartment-style condominiums. One in eight dwellings are duplexes.

Falconer Heights is a family-oriented community in which almost nine out of ten residents are married and one fifth of the population is under the age of 20.

The neighborhood is home to a sizable Asian community, with over a quarter of its residents claiming Asian descent.

A pharmacy, a health care centre and a dental centre lie within the neighbourhood’s boundaries. Falconer Heights is also home to St. Thomas More Catholic Church. Riverbend Square, a shopping complex in the community’s northeast corner, offers amenities such as a public library, retail shopping, and various casual dining establishments.

Falconer Heights extends from Riverbend Road on the west to Terwilliger Drive on the east. Rabbit Hill Road defines the northernmost limits of the community, while an undeveloped strip of land adjacent to 29th Avenue forms the southern boundary.

Nearby Whitemud Drive offers neighbourhood residents convenient travel from east to west.
