Alberta Avenue is a pre–World War II neighbourhood in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Alberta Avenue is a mature, inner city neighbourhood in Edmonton, Alberta. Much of the area’s development occurred during the First World War era and it was once home to the Great Western Garment Company and the Norwood Foundry.
Although it fell on hard times during the 1970s, Alberta Avenue is undergoing revitalization and increasingly is becoming a desirable place to live due to its close proximity to the downtown core, reasonable house prices, and access to amenities such as public transit, the Commonwealth Recreation Centre, the Sprucewood Library and many family owned and bakeries.
Alberta Avenue is bounded on the north by 122 Avenue (originally called Woodward Avenue), on the west by 97 Street (originally called Namayo Avenue), on the south by 111 Avenue (Norwood Boulevard), and on the east by 89 Street (originally called Fox Street) (source)
