Abbottsfield is a neighbourhood in east Edmonton, Alberta, Canada overlooking the North Saskatchewan River valley. The neighbourhood is named for Abraham Abbott, a resident of the Town of Beverly and long time school custodian. While development of Abbottsfield didn't begin until nearly a decade after the amalgamation of Beverly with Edmonton in 1961, the neighborhood is located in an area closely associated with Beverly. Abbottsfield is bounded by the North Saskatchewan River valley on the east, 118 Avenue on the south, 34 Street on the west, and the Yellowhead Trail corridor on the north. Victoria Drive forms the boundary between the neighbourhood and river valley proper. Rundle Park is located in the river valley below Abbottsfield and the neighbourhood of Rundle Heights located immediately to the south. Almost two out of every three residential dwellings in the neighbourhood were built during the 1970s. The majority of dwellings are row houses (54%), followed by apartments in low rise apartment buildings (33%). Virtually all the remaining dwellings are duplexes, triplexes and quadruplexes.
