Glenora Real Estate Listings
Glenora is a highly sought-after, mature, upscale neighbourhood overlooking the river valley and lying just a short commute west of Downtown Edmonton. The neighbourhood is bounded by 107 Avenue to the north, 142 Street to the west, the North Saskatchewan River Valley and MacKinnon Ravine to the south, and the Groat Road ravine to the east. The neighbourhood is well-developed, with a mix comprised largely of single-family homes, medium-density residential, and light service commercial. Higher-density residential construction is occurring at the west edge of the neighbourhood in anticipation of the new Valley Line LRT’s transit connection. The population of Glenora is 3,513, primarily middle-aged and retired, with a diverse background in work and education.
Glenora is one of Edmonton’s wealthiest neighbourhoods, with a median household income in excess of $100,000 per year, and has a rich history, with development tracing back to 1906. In 1909, the Governer’s House was built in the south-east part of Glenora. Much of the area was developed in the land boom of 1912, leaving many of the most beautiful historic homes in the city today. Glenora has also been experiencing consistent infill in recent decades, making the neighbourhood an interesting study of architectural styles. The streets are lined with mature trees and vegetation, with many small parks tucked away on quiet blocks.
Notable parks in the area are Glenora Park, which offers a playground, sports field, skating rink, and the Glenora Community Hall, Faith Clifton/Alan MacDonald Memorial Park, and Alexander Circle, which is a fountain surrounded by flower beds, benches, and a circular road. In the south-east corner of Glenora, overlooking the river valley and on the grounds of the old museum, are Government House, Korean Pavilion, and Government Hill, with Government House Park at the bottom. This park offers abundant picnic opportunities on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River. Several ravines also reach into Glenora, such as the MacKinnon Ravine, Groat Ravine, and Ramsay Ravine. These ravines are filled with trails for recreational use.
Glenora’s location offers easy access to downtown via Jasper Avenue or Stony Plain Road, as well as a quick connection to Whitemud Drive. The University of Alberta and the Whyte Ave/Old Strathcona district are a short drive across the North Saskatchewan River. Glenora contains several schools, including the Progressive Academy, Glenora Preschool, Westminster School, Glenora Elementary, and St Vincent Catholic School. Many other schools lie nearby.
The area also contains numerous local commercial stores and services, with many more conveniences available along 124 Street, 142 Street, 149 Street, or at Oliver Square and the Brewery District. The Pearl Church and Faith Community Church are located within Glenora, while many others are nearby, including Fellowship Baptist Church, Grace Assembly, St. Paul’s Anglican Church, West End Christian Reformed Church, St. Andrew’s United Church, St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, West Edmonton Seventh-Day Adventist Church, Robertson-Wesley United Church, St. George’s Greek Orthodox Church, and the Anglican Parish of Christ Church.
