The best of Edmonton living happens in Strathcona! Development of the neighbourhood began in 1891, making Strathcona one of Edmonton’s oldest neighbourhoods. Strathcona does offer charming single-family homes, but the majority of its homes reside in low and high-rise apartments. Enjoy access to major roads and public transportation for easy travel to anywhere in Edmonton or simply walk to everything you’ll need for recreation, commercial-use, employment and education (including easy walking access to the University of Alberta). Say goodbye to boredom when you leave your home and explore the breath-taking nature provided by Edmonton’s river valley to the north, Mill Creek Ravine to the east and Edmonton’s famous Whyte Avenue to the south. From serene nature adventures, to endless entertainment and amenities (including the popular Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market), Strathcona is one of Edmonton’s most coveted locations.
