If you are looking for a neighbourhood that can give you the twin advantages of being well connected to the city’s centre as well as having a peaceful, quiet environment, then Evansdale is a good place to drop in for a recon. The peaceful tree lined streets, charming homes, and welcoming neighbours and neatly laid out community are sure to catch your attention. This community is one of the more recent ones in Edmonton to develop and that’s why it offers both the old world charm of its older neighbours with respect to the overall neighbourhood planning design yet has modern home styles with all the amenities you could possibly think of.
A predominantly residential neighbourhood, Evansdale is perfect for raising a family or spending your retirement years in a beautiful home surrounded by helpful folk. Schools, shopping areas, churches, medical facilities- you name it, Evansdale has it all on offer. Add to all of these, the fact that thanks to excellent connectivity, you are just a quick drive away from the buzzing heart of Edmonton and it is easy to see why properties here are in good demand all round the year.

This north east Edmonton neighbourhood is part of the Dickinsfield community along with its neighbour, Northmount. Dickinsfield is encircled on the south side by 137 Avenue, to the north side by 157 Avenue, 82 Street circles it on the east and 97 Street in the west. 144 Avenue runs right through the community, dividing it into two parts. The southern segment makes up the community of Northmount and the northern one makes up the neighbourhood of Evansdale.
Evansdale gets its name from Harry Marshall Erskine Evans, who was Edmonton's mayor in 1918 and also the president of the Edmonton Board of Trade in 1916. Evans came to Edmonton from Ontario in 1907 and here he started a finance company. He was a prominent figure especially after he served the role of financial advisor to the provincial government. In 1946, Evans was granted the Order of the British Empire. Later, in 1961, Evansdale, along with many other neighbourhoods was annexed into the city of Edmonton as was much of the land extending right for Dickinsfield to Beverly.
A major part of the development in Evansdale took place in the 1970s. The infill development did not happen at this time and this took a while longer to start. It was in the 1980’s and 1990’s that the infill development happened. A relatively recently developed neighbourhood, the housing styles are a mix of modern home designs and slightly older models. You will find a good mix of house types here with single family detached homes rubbing shoulders with semi detached homes, low rise apartment complexes and row homes.
One of the biggest advantages that Evansdale has to offer is the access it affords to some good schools. This factor makes it a preferred place for young parents. Within the community you have three schools. The Edmonton Public Schools system operates the Evansdale Elementary School located here. The Edmonton Catholic Schools system operates two schools here, the St. Philip Catholic Elementary School and the Cardinal Leger Catholic Junior High School. Nearby, in Northmount, there are three more schools that are easily accessible from Evansdale.
One of the factors that people look for before choosing a location for settling down is whether or not they have access to good medical facilities from here. Evansdale has an advantage in that respect as well with the Dickinsfield Extended Care Hospital that is located just next door in Northmount.
