In many Canadian cities, you’ll find sizable, upscale neighbourhoods close to downtown with mature trees and large homes on expansive properties. Many of the homes are historic, built when these areas were near the edge of town before the suburbs sprang up. Glenora in Edmonton is one of these communities.
With quick access to the city centre, it’s also very close to the North Saskatchewan River valley with its miles of unspoiled natural beauty, hiking trails and bike paths. MacKinnon Ravine Park (in the river valley) features all of this nature… and picnic sites, too! There’s plenty of good shopping nearby, just down Stony Plain Rd NW. And there are four schools in the neighbourhood: Glenora Elementary, Westminster Junior High, St. Vincent Catholic Elementary and the Progressive Academy.
Glenora runs east-west from Groat Rd to 142 St and north-south from 107 Ave to the North Saskatchewan River Valley and the MacKinnon Ravine. Adjacent neighbourhoods include Westmount, North Glenora, McQueen and Grovenor and Crestwood.
