Bannerman is an established neighbourhood located along the eastern fringes of Northeast Edmonton. Like many other communities situated in this end of the city, Bannerman was annexed by greater Edmonton in the early 1960s, with development occurring approximately ten years later. In addition to diverse and affordable home styles, part of Bannerman’s appeal lies within its close proximity to shops, services and popular Hermitage Park. A great neighbourhood for outdoor lovers and active families, Hermitage Park allows residents to enjoy an endless array of recreational amenities within a beautiful river valley setting.
