Tucked away along the banks of the North Saskatchewan River Valley, Beverly Heights is an established Northeast Edmonton neighbourhood whose history dates back to the late 1800s. Formerly a standalone town known for its lucrative coal mining operations, Beverly didn’t amalgamate with the greater City of Edmonton until the early 1960s. To this day, this mature community maintains a quiet and independent vibe reminiscent of its small-town roots. Quaint, outdoor-friendly, and brimming with convenient amenities, Beverly Heights is a popular choice among first-time buyers, growing families, and anyone searching for an affordable single-family home.
Did you know? First established as a village (prior to becoming a town in 1914), the Village of Beverly took its name from the larger Town of Beverly, located in Yorkshire, England.
