Edmonton's Best "Alternative" Neighbourhoods

Edmonton is always changing, communities adapt and transform all the time, so whether you are new to Edmonton or have lived here all your life there may be communities that you should reconsider or explore. 

Many people focus on the best of Edmonton which often has a high price point, that is why we've put together our own Top Edmonton Alternative list with some unconventional favourites that may surprise you - because we all know that sometimes the best places can be found off-the-beaten path! So strap yourself in - we're about to go on an exciting little tour through some of Edmonton's most vibrant pockets within city limits.

If you LOVE Westmount, you may want to consider Inglewood, Woodcroft or Prince Rupert

Everyone wants to live in Westmount with its iconic historical architecture, access to the vibrant businesses on 124 Street and easy commute to downtown, but with an average home price of $540,000 it is not a viable option for most people.  Therefore, if you want to live in Westmount than I would recommend considering Inglewood, Prince Rupert or Woodcroft.

All three neighbourhoods maintain a much lower median house price of around $300,000; as well they provide many of the same amenities as Westmount, but with a more affordable price tag. In Inglewood, you will find lots of character homes built in the mid-20th century and plenty of green space and parks. Prince Rupert offers charming historical homes and is located close to Royal Alexandra Hospital and Kingsway Mall. Lastly, Woodcroft is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Edmonton and also boasts easy access to downtown.  So if you are looking for a more affordable option in Westmount, I would highly recommend exploring Inglewood, Prince Rupert or Woodcroft. You won't be disappointed!

If you LOVE Bonnie Doon you need to consider Holyrood.

Bonnie Doon is close to Whyte Avenue, the French Quarters and all of Central Edmonton; but with an average price point of $600,0000 it is hard to attain. You shoud consider Holyrood in Edmonton . Holyrood is located close to Bonnie Doon and offers an average price point of $389,000. It has many restaurants, shops and cafes all within walking distance. Not to mention it's easy access to the University of Alberta and Whyte Avenue. So if you want that Bonnie Doon vibe without the hefty pricetag, look towards Holyrood.

Do you long to live in Laurier Heights - consider Meadowlark Park!

If you dream of living in Laurier Heights but don't want to break the bank to do so, Meadowlark Park should be on your radar. It's located right next door and offers a more affordable price point of $450,000 compared to Laurier's average of $600,000. With many parks nearby and easy access to the Whitemud and River Valley, Meadowlark Park is an ideal spot for those seeking a more budget-friendly neighbourhood. Plus, there's plenty of great restaurants and shops in the area as well! So if you're looking for a cozy place to call home with all the amenities of Laurier Heights, Meadowlark Park is the best choice!

Want the million dollar views of Oliver, Strathearn, or Garneau but do not want to pay a million dollars to have it?

The best gems for iconic views of the city or of the river valley might surprise you.  If you are looking for a house, our recommendations would be Forest Heights, Beacon Heights and Rundle Heights!  These communities have great views and affordable price points .  Plus, they are conveniently located close to parks and trails, as well as shops, restaurants and services. So if you want the best of both worlds – a great view without breaking the bank – these neighbourhoods are worth considering!

Want the charm, convenience and historical flare of Old Strathcona, consider Alberta Avenue or Parkdale!

Alberta Avenue and Parkdale are two of the most underrated communities in the City of Edmonton.  On top of offering some of the most reasonable values for a single family home, these communities offer history, community, and events by the dozen.  The vibrancy of these areas is obvious and the community vibes are unseen anywhere else.  Check out the community gardens, Kaleido Family Arts Festival, Deep Freeze Fest, and so much more.  Arts on the Avenue is making major headway in making this community a destination for culture and community!

For those looking for the best condo options with amazing views, Boyle Street and Riverdale are often overlooked even though they offer some of the best views in the city. Both are close to excellent amenities and you can get a quality condo for under $300K.

No matter what kind of budget you have, there is something for you in Edmonton!  


Community Spotlight

If you are looking to live among lush green space and water, without sacrificing the convenience of urban living then choose Riverdale. With an incredibly diverse community, architecture, and history - Riverdale is an iconic community and one of Edmontons best kept secrets.

Riverdale is one of Edmonton’s most picturesque communities. It is a diverse river valley neighbourhood located just east of Edmonton’s downtown core.  Because of this location Riverdale remains distinct and retains its identity as a separate and unified community. Riverdale has been able to maintain much of its original charm and small town feel; where community pride and spirit run strong.
