Alberta Avenue Community Overview

Alberta Avenue is one of the older residential neighbourhoods in Edmonton, with much of the area's development occurring during the First World War era. It is bounded on the north by 122 Avenue (Woodward Avenue), on the west by 97 Street (Namayo Street), on the south by 111 Avenue (Norwood Boulevard), and on the east by 89 Street.

Alberta Avenue was the name of 118 Avenue prior to the adoption of the grid system in 1914. Historically, it was a route between the City of Edmonton in the west and the Town of Beverly in the east. It is also sometimes called the Avenue of Champions.

When Beverly was still a separate community from Edmonton, the portion of Alberta Avenue in Beverly was the central business district. Beverly amalgamated with Edmonton on December 31, 1961. Following the amalgamation, Beverly's central business district went into a period of decline.

Alberta Avenue begins near the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and extends roughly 75 city blocks until it continues as Victoria Trail. The avenue boasts several major landmarks, including Northlands Park and Rexall Place, home of the Edmonton Oilers.

The avenue is targeted for revitalization as part of the Alberta Avenue-Eastwood Business Revitalization Zone.
