The UofA, arts, shopping and more. Strathcona is located in south central Edmonton and has been rated by Avenue magazine as the #1 neighbourhood for several years, only dropping to #2 in 2017.
While not No. 1 this year, locals still love Strathcona for its density and amenities including the weekly farmers’ market, walkability, patios, venues for theatre and live entertainment and annual festivals including the Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival — there’s plenty of appeal that draws locals from all neighbourhoods of the city.
Green Strathcona: That bright green fixture in front of Next Act Pub next to the bike corral is actually a bike repair station. It includes a tire pump and eight tools for on-the-go repairs. *Source - Avenue Magazine.
