LIVE IN SOUTH EDMONTON
Haddow, a newer residential neighbourhood in the southwest part of the city, was named for Alberta Harrow, former Chief Engineer of the City of Edmonton in the early and mid-1900’s. Development on the community began in the late 1990’s, with the majority of the homes built in the early 2000’s. Virtually all the homes are owner-occupied, detached single-family houses, with a small number of row houses present as well.
The community contains many newer families, and relatively large households. Nearly a fifth of Haddow residents are under 10 years old, and two fifths of the households contain more than four people. Most residents in this relatively young area have recently moved from another location, with less than a third classified as “non-movers.”
The neighbourhood is roughly the shape of an inverted triangle, with Anthony Henday Drive forming the southwest side and Terwilliger Drive creating the southeast side. The north boundary is a strip of presently undeveloped land adjacent to 29th Avenue.
The presence of Anthony Henday Drive offers commuters easy access to downtown Edmonton. The neighborhood also benefits from the presence of Riverbend Square. This local shopping centre offers an array of retail stores and dining opportunities, including Chinese, Italian and American cuisine.
