NEIGHBOURHOOD PROFILE credit to the City of Edmonton
 
Patricia Heights
 
Patricia Heights lies west of 156tStreet and south of Whitemud Drive. These two
major arterial roads provide residents with easy access to other areas of the
city.
 
 
Patricia Ravine forms the south and west boundaries, and provides one of the
key features of this neighbourhood. Many of the homes in Patricia Heights overlook
the ravine. Residential land use is evenly split between low density and medium
density housing types; single detached homes make up just less than 50% of all
housing units within the neighbourhood and low and medium rise apartment buildings make up the remainder of the housing stock. Higher density housing is clustered in the northeastern portion of the neighbourhood along
156thStreet.
 
 
Patricia Heights was annexed to the City of Edmonton in 1964 as part of a large block of land
located between 149 Street and 170 Street and extending from the North Saskatchewan River
to 123A Avenue. A majority of the neighbourhood was developed during the 1960s and
residential construction was completed in the 1970s.
 
The Patricia Heights Elementary School is located along the northern border of the neighbourhood and a small commercial centre is located off 156thStreet. Residents of Patricia Heights are a short drive from health and
commercial facilities at Meadowlark Health and Shopping Centre and West Edmonton Mall.
The Jewish Community Centre (JCC) and Beth Ora Reform Synagogue are located at the
southern tip of the neighbourhood overlooking the ravine. The JCC provides a variety of
community amenities and activities to Patricia Heights residents and also serves both Jewish
and non-Jewish communities from outside the neighbourhood.
 
 
This neighbourhood was named after Princess Patricia, daughter of a Governor General of
Canada and granddaughter of Queen Victoria. After marrying Sir Alexander Ramsay in 1919, a
commoner and Navel Officer Commander, Princess Patricia relinquished her royal title and
was thereafter known as Lady Patricia Ramsay.

NEIGHBOURHOOD PROFILE
 
 
Rio Terrace - Credit to the City of Edmonton
 
 
Previously a part of the Town of Jasper Place, Rio Terrace is located in an area
annexed to the City of Edmonton in 1964. Rio Terrace is perched atop the north
bank of the North Saskatchewan River Valley. This location provides spectacular
views of the river valley and Fort Edmonton Park from vantage points along
Rio Terrace Drive (73 rd Avenue).  
 
Fort Edmonton Park is one of Edmonton’s most  popular tourist attractions. It provides an  educational and entertaining journey through Edmonton’s past, where visitors
can explore in detail the life of our city’s early pioneers.
 
 
Ninety percent (90%) of the homes were built in the 1960s. All the residential units in the neighbourhood are single unit dwellings. Other land uses in the neighbourhood include an elementary school, community league, a church and a park. These facilities are located in the west-central area of the neighbourhood. Rio Terrace has no commercial business sites. However, residents have easy access to retail and service businesses within Edmonton via Whitemud Drive.
 
 
Rio Terrace was likely named in 1958. As the word “rio” is Spanish for “river,” Rio Terrace is likely a descriptive name for the neighbourhood that overlooks the North Saskatchewan River
