Mill Woods Community Overview

Mill Woods is a district in the city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, south of the Whitemud Drive (14), east of 91 Street, west of 34 Street, and north of Anthony Henday Drive. Development of Mill Woods began in the early 1970s. Mill Woods was one of the first areas of Edmonton to move away from the grid system, leading local comedians to joke about the "black hole" at the center of Mill Woods, which made it easy to get in but impossible to get out.

Mill Woods is composed of eight communities: Millhurst, Millbourne, Lakewood, Southwood, Burnewood, Knottwood, Ridgewood, and Woodvale.

These communities are connected by a ring road, Mill Woods Road, along its east, south, and west extent and by 38 Avenue along its north extent. Smaller ring roads, intersecting Mill Woods Road, connect the two or three neighborhoods typically found within each community.

Within the circle formed by these eight communities are the neighbourhoods of Mill Woods Town Centre and Tawa. Together, these two neighbourhoods form a largely business and service core intended to allow Mill Woods to function as a self-contained community. This core contains Mill Woods Town Centre (a major shopping mall), the Grey Nuns Community Hospital, a fire station, an ETS bus terminal, and the Edmonton Police Service's south east division headquarters. Immediately to the west of Mill Woods Town Centre, in Mill Woods Park, is the Mill Woods Recreation Centre.

The Papaschase Indian Reserve, which was created in 1876, was located in the Mill Woods Area. The reserve was later sold to early white settlers, and the land used for agriculture until the late 1960s. The area's aboriginal heritage is reflected in the names of many of the neighborhoods, which are taken from the Cree language. One of the neighborhoods, Satoo, is named for a Cree chief.

Mill Woods has a large number of public parks, and is served by the Mill Woods Golf Course.

With a population of 110 256 people, Mill Woods would be Alberta's third largest city if it were its own metropolitan area.

Newer neighbourhoods, distinct from Mill Woods, are now being built to the east of 34 Street and to the south of Anthony Henday Drive.

The Mill Woods area has 21 public elementary schools, 11 Catholic elementary schools, four public junior high schools, three Catholic junior high schools, one public high school, and one Catholic high school. Mill Woods also has the Mill Woods (South) Campus of MacEwan College.
