LIVE IN UNIVERSITY AREA
Windsor Park, an older residential neighbourhood in south central Edmonton, overlooks the North Saskatchewan River Valley to the north, west and southwest. Its eastern boundary abuts the north campus of the University of Alberta; the neighbourhood of Belgravia is its boundary to the south.
Development in the area was spurred by the construction of the Groat Road Bridge in 1955. The vast majority of dwellings in Windsor Park are detached single-family homes, with four out of five houses occupied by owners. Residents are demographically mature; over 13 percent are over age 70.
With average household incomes close to triple that of the citywide average, Windsor Park is one of Edmonton’s most prosperous neighbourhoods.
Residents enjoy a wealth of amenities and conveniences. Windsor Park’s central location affords great access to the downtown core, Whitemud Drive, Southgate Centre and the West Edmonton Mall. A pair of LRT stations in the neighbourhood makes public transportation a convenient option. Residents benefit from proximity to nearby Hawrelak Park, one of the city’s largest and most scenic green spaces. In summer, Hawrelak stages Shakespeare in the Park festivals, hosts Heritage Days, and offers a wide variety of other public events and celebrations. The nearby River Valley provides additional recreational opportunities. Inhabitants of Windsor Park also have excellent access to the medical facilities and other services provided by the University of Alberta.
