Patricia Heights


Patricia Heights, an older residential neighbourhood in south Edmonton, underwent most of its development in the 1960’s, with a small amount of homes added in the following decade. The neighbourhood is divided more or less equally between detached single-family homes and condominium-style housing, with owner-occupancy at about the same proportion. Patricia Heights was named for Princess Patricia, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria who abdicated her royal title in order to marry a commoner.

Patricia Heights is bounded on the south and southwest by the Patricia Ravine. In addition to the natural boundary formed by the ravine, the area is defined by the limits of three neighbouring communities: Westridge to the west, Elmwood and Lynnwood to the North, and Rio Terrace to the east. The presence of Whitemud Drive in the neighbourhood allows for easy east-west travel, and the area features good bus service via the Edmonton Transit System.

The neighbourhood is home to the Patricia Heights Elementary School, operated by the Edmonton Public School System.

Residents of this well-established community enjoy many conveniences and amenities. The recreational opportunities of the River Valley, including its system of hiking trails, are accessible via the Patricia Ravine, while The Patricia Heights Shopping Centre west of 156th Street offers opportunities for local marketing. The Jewish Community Centre of Edmonton on 156th Street serves Jewish and non-Jewish residents alike with programs and activities.
