Terwillegar Towne


Terwillegar Towne was named after Dr. Norman Terwillegar, a pillar of Edmonton’s medical community who practiced medicine in Edmonton from 1912 to 1947. The neighborhood is bounded on the south by Terwillegar Boulevard, on the west by 156 Street and Terwillegar Drive, on the east by 142 Street, and on the north by 23 Avenue.

Development of Terwillegar Towne began in the late 1990s, but didn’t really pick up until the 2000s. That is when over 70% of construction took place after 2001. Unlike most recent developments, the neighborhood doesn’t entirely consist of single-detached homes; around 25% of dwellings are actually row houses, semi-detached homes, and apartments over 5 storeys.

As with many newer neighborhoods, popular with families just starting out, there are tons of children in Terwillager Towne and around 30% of residents are under 20. Around 93% of residences are owner-occupied units.

The neighborhood was designed to be extremely pedestrian friendly, so there are many walking and biking trails. Residents have access to the Southwest Recreation Centre to stay active year round.
