Welcome to Alberta Ave! Your Guide to Our Neighbourhood
About Alberta Ave
Alberta Avenue is a mature neighbourhood, located just north of downtown Edmonton. Alberta Avenue is bounded on the north by 122 Avenue, on the west by 97 Street, on the south by 111 Avenue, and on the east by 89 Street.
"The name of the neighbourhood was adopted from the historic name for 118 Avenue. The community has used the name Alberta Avenue since at least 1922, as the Alberta Avenue Community League was formed that year. The part of the Alberta Avenue neighbourhood between Norwood Boulevard and 118 Avenue was formerly known as Norwood. A portion, from 118 Avenue to 121 Avenue, was once called West Delton." -Naming Edmonton
