Lymburn in Edmonton’s west end was named after John Lymburn, Attorney General of Alberta from 1926 to 1935. Lymburn is bounded on the north by Whitemud Drive, on the west by Anthony Henday Drive, on the south by 69 Avenue, and on the east by 178 Street, Lymburn provides access to the many commercial amenities of nearby West Edmonton Mall, from hair salons to shoe stores, T&T Asian grocers and the Ice Palace for year-round skating.

Thanks to the Whitemud Drive and Anthony Henday Drive, residents of the area enjoy good east/west commuting to various points around Edmonton, for when the overwhelming convenience of the west end’s abundant amenities gets old.

Lymburn was developed primarily in the 1970s and 1980s and has a housing mix of about 70% single detached houses, 25% row houses and low-rises and semi-detached making up the minority. Great for new families, Lymburn contains two elementary schools and a higher than normal percentage of children making up the population. Almost 30% of the neighborhood’s residents are under 20 and Lymburn has larger than average households: 56% have over three people.
