Strathearn Community Overview

Strathearn is a roughly triangular shaped residential neighbourhood in south central Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Part of the area of Strathearn was annexed by the City of Strathcona in 1907, and became part of the City of Edmonton when Strathcona amalgamated with Edmonton in 1912. However, most of the development in the neighbourhood dates to the 1940s and 1950s.

Bonnie Doon Shopping Centre and Whyte Avenue are located a short distance to the south of the neighbourhood.

The neighbourhood is bounded on the south west by Connors Road, on the east by 85 Street, and on the north west by the North Saskatchewan River valley. In the river valley immediately below Strathearn is the neighbourhood of Cloverdale.

Shops and services are found in the Strathearn Centre strip mall and at two other smaller commercial sites (a fourth commercially zoned site, formerly occupied by a gas station/convenience store, now sits vacant). There are three parks within the neighbourhood -- the school grounds, Silver Heights Park and Strathearn Park -- and three churches: Strathearn United Church, Assumption Catholic Church and the Bonnie Doon Stake Centre of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Other amenities include tree-lined streets and the scenic view of downtown Edmonton from Strathearn Drive.

The Strathearn Community League is a neighbourhood organization established in the early 1950s. The league's original impetus was to provide local recreational opportunities. In cooperation with the City of Edmonton it built a playground, skating rink and associated rink shack/league hall in Silver Heights Park at the centre of the neighbourhood, and organized child sports teams. More recently the league has become involved in social matters (it sponsored a preschool from the mid 1990s until 2005) and has been active in urban planning matters within and near its boundaries.

Strathearn Elementary/Junior School was a fixture in the neighbourhood from the early 1950s until 2005, when the Edmonton Public School Board closed it, citing declining enrollment. In September 2006, the Ecole Publique Gabrielle-Roy, a francophone school run by the Conseil scolaire Centre-Nord, opened in the building that had housed Strathearn School.
