Keheewin’s development began in the 1970s, as is common with most neighborhoods in the area, and continued well in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It is bounded on the west by 111 Street, on the east by Calgary Trail/Gateway Boulevard, and on the north by 23 Avenue. The southern boundary is located approximately half a block south of 18 Avenue. Keheewin was named after Chief Keheewin which is Cree for “eagle”. He was a Cree leader in the area, in the mid-19th century.

Keheewin is dominated by single-detached homes and low-rise apartments with some row houses and semi-detached homes. It is considered to be an older and well established neighborhood with 20% of residents over the age of 60 and 65 % of residents having lived in the area for five years or more.

Providing access to the fantastic commercial amenities of nearby South Edmonton Common, just south of its border at 23 Avenue, residents can find anything from a Tim Horton’s for a quick coffee to Mikado, a great restaurant for the discerning sushi eater.

Nearby LRT access and three lines on Gateway Boulevard both mean easy commuting to the downtown core and/or University of Alberta campus area.
