Dickensfield Community Overview

Dickinsfield is bounded on the south by 137 Avenue, on the north by 157 Avenue, on the east by 82 Street, and on the west by 97 Street. It is split roughly in half by 144 Avenue with the south half containing the neighbourhood of Northmount and the north half making up the neighbourhood of Evansdale. 97 Street provides access to both the downtown core and CFB Edmonton.

The Dickinsfield area, the Dickinsfield Elementary School, and the Dickinsfield Extended Care Centre are all named after aviator Clennell Haggerston "Punch" Dickins. Dickens was the first pilot inducted into the Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame.

The neighbourhood of Evansdale is named after Harry Marshall Erskine Evans, Edmonton's mayor from 1918 to 1919 and president of the Edmonton Board of Trade (now the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce) in 1916.

Both neighbourhoods are residential neighbourhoods with schools, churches, shopping, and medical services.

There are two shopping malls in Dickinsfield. One is the Dickinsfield Mall. The other is North Town Mall, located at the southwest corner of Northmount. Immediately across 137 Avenue from the North Town Mall is Northgate Centre. The Edmonton Transit System's Northgate Transit Centre is located next to North Town Mall on the north side of 137 Street.

The Dickinsfield Extended Care Hospital is located in the Northmount neighbourhood.

There are six schools operated by the Edmonton Public School system and the Edmonton Cathlolic School System in Dickinsfield, three in Evansdale and three in Northmount. Two are junior high schools and four are elementary schools. In addition, there are two other educational facilities located in the area's Dickinsfield Mall.
