It may be a suburb, but Edmonton's Strathcona neighbourhood is a great place to discover what it really means to enjoy urban life. Known for its high population of students who attend the University of Alberta, easy access to parks and low-key walkability, this community has much in store for prospective homeowners.
The Strathcona Story
Strathcona was once a city of its own, but as neighbouring Edmonton expanded, the two locales eventually merged. Although the region still hosts fixtures like farmers markets, performing arts centres and local associations under the historic Old Strathcona name, the modern borough is fully linked with Edmonton amenities.
Today, residents enjoy a local neighbourhood league with 100 years of history, outdoor rinks, great schools and shared community garden lots. Well-kept parks, such as Nellie McClung, the Muttart Conservatory and the neighbourhood's many smaller open spaces, offer a variety of outdoor recreation options. Here, people can discover everything from baseball fields and bike paths to quiet riverbank views and explorations of tropical plant life.
