Highlands Community Overview

Highlands is a residential neighbourhood in north east Edmonton, Alberta, Canada overlooking the North Saskatchewan River valley. The area was annexed by Edmonton in 1912, and "was named in a contest offering a 50-dollar prize."

The neighbourhood is bounded on the north by 118 (Alberta) Avenue, on the east by 50 Street, on the west by 67 Street, and on the south by the North Saskatchewan River valley. Interchanges between Wayne Gretzky Drive and both 118 Avenue and 112 Avenue give residents access to destinations south of the river including Whyte Avenue and the University of Alberta.

Residents enjoy good access to Edmonton Northlands, Rexall Place, the Edmonton Commonwealth Stadium and Concordia College. All four facilities are located a short distance west of the neighbourhood.

There are two schools in the neighbourhood, Highlands Public School and Mount Royal Elementary School, both operated by the Edmonton Public School System.
