LIVE IN NORTH WEST EDMONTON
Mayfield is bordered on the north by 111 Avenue, the east by 156 Street, to the south by 107 Avenue, and on the west by Mayfield Road.
There are a number of parks in the neighbourhood: Mayfield Park, Otto Leslie Park, Patrick J. Ryan Park, and Phoebe McCullough Park.
There are two schools in the neighbourhood. The Edmonton Public School System operates the Mayfield Elementary School while the Edmonton Catholic School System operates Our Lady Of Peace Catholic Elementary School.
The name for the neighbourhood was chosen through a naming contest in 1954. Mayfield was named in honour of Wilfrid R. “Wop” May, a civilian aviation pioneer and World War I fighter pilot. May founded Edmonton’s first air service in 1919 and established the Edmonton and Northern Alberta Aero Club in 1928. He was inducted into Canada’s aviation hall of fame in 1973.
Major commercial amenities are located nearby in Mayfield Common, a regional shopping centre located along Stony Plain Road and Mayfield Road.
A central school and park site defines the heart of the neighbourhood, and smaller parks are strategically located throughout to provide residents with amenity space. Single family residences, predominately bungalows, are oriented around the central school/park site. This mature neighbourhood features a total of four parks and two schools.
Mayfield’s street pattern is a good example of the modified grid pattern that became popular after World War II.
