Overview About South Western Edmonton And Its Neighborhoods
Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta, a western province of Canada which also happens to be the fourth most populous province of Canada & the most populous of the three prairie provinces of Canada – Alberta, Saskatchewan & Manitoba. Covering an area of about 660,000 sq. kms. or 250,000 sq. miles, Alberta & its neighbouring province Saskatchewan used to be districts of the north-western territories till they were established as separate provinces in 1905.
Alberta is surrounded by land masses on all sides & is one of only two such provinces of Canada. It is surrounded by British Columbia in the west, Saskatchewan in the east, north western territories in the north & the US state of Montana in the south. Alberta is one of only three Canadian provinces or territories to border only a single US state.
Edmonton is near the geographic centre of the province & provides primary supply to Canada’s crude oil from the Athabasca Oil Sands & other northern resource industries.
About 180 miles or 290 kms. south of Edmonton is Calgary, Alberta’s largest city. Calgary & Edmonton are the only two metropolitan cities in Edmonton where the population exceeds one million.
Alberta was named after Princess Louise Caroline Alberta who lived from 1848 to 1939. Princess Alberta was the fourth daughter of queen Victoria of England.
As of 2016, with a population of little over a million, Edmonton is the fifth largest municipality & the sixth largest metropolitan area of Canada. Also, Edmonton is the northern most city in north America with a metropolitan population of a million or more.
Edmonton is the result of the amalgamation of five urban Canadian municipalities – Strathcona, North Edmonton, West Edmonton, Beverly & Jasper Place that culminated in its formation in 1982. The city provides vital gateway to the oil projects in northern Alberta & diamond mining operations in north western territories.
Popularly known as Canada’s Festival City, Edmonton is also a cultural, governmental & educational centre. It is home to West Edmonton Mall, the largest mall in North America & the largest in the world till 2004. It also home to Fort Edmonton Park, Canada’s largest living History Museum.
The city is located on the north Saskatchewan river & has the same latitude as Hamburg in Germany, Dublin in Ireland & Manchester in UK. The terrain is flat or gently rolling with ravines & deep river valleys. The Canadian Rockies are located about 220 km or 140 miles to the southwest of the city.
The north Saskatchewan river more or less runs through the heart of the city, neatly cutting it into two halves. Before the construction of reservoirs in the mountains, this river would sometimes reap havoc & flood the river valley.
