Hodgson, located in the southwestern part of Edmonton, was named for John Hodgson, a noted city comptroller and financial commissioner who served the city for 40 years. Construction, which took place on land originally devoted to agriculture, didn’t begin until the development boom of the early 2000’s, distinguishing Hodgson as one of the newest residential neighbourhoods in the city.

Detached single-family homes predominate in this family-oriented community, with a smaller number of low-rise apartments and row houses also present. Virtually all the units are occupied by owners, who tend to be relatively young. The average Hodgson household consists of a married couple in their thirties with children.

Hodgson’s southern perimeter is defined by 23rd Avenue, while a utility corridor slightly north of 29th Avenue constitutes the northern boundary. The neighbourhood begins to the west at Rabbit Hill Road, with the Whitemud Creek Ravine creating a natural boundary to the east.

This youthful, civic-minded community boasts its own large, centrally-located park.

The Hodgson Community League, located in Hodgson Park, hosts a variety of events to promote family and community pride, including clean-up days.

Residents looking for recreational activities enjoy easy access to the Whitemud Creek Ravine. Forested with white spruce and lodgepole pines, the Ravine features scenic hiking trails.
