The Northeast Edmonton community of Belmont encompasses all real estate located east of 40th Street, south of 137th Ave, west of Victoria Trail and north of the Kennedale Ravine. A mature neighbourhood, Belmont’s roots date back to the late 1800s when many new settlers arrived in the area. Despite being annexed by the City of Edmonton in 1961, Belmont went largely undeveloped until the 1970s, when the Clareview Outline Plan was approved. From here, the community expanded quickly and was largely complete by the decade’s end.
Did you know? Belmont takes its name from the terms “belle” and “mont” – French for “beautiful mountain.”
