Alberta Avenue

Alberta Avenue (118th Avenue) is a major street and neighborhood in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Surrounding neighbourhoods are Delton to the north and north east, Westwood and Spruce Avenue to the west, McDougall to the south west, McCauley to the south and south east, and Eastwood and Parkdale to the east. Alberta Avenue is a lower income neighbourhood, with almost one household in three earning less than $20,000 per year. In recent years, however, the area has seen increasing redevelopment and is rapidly becoming a destination for the arts community, similar to what Whyte Avenue was in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The stretch of 118th Avenue between NAIT and Northlands is well known for drugs, gangs, drunks and prostitution, but has been the focus of cleanup efforts for more than a decade. It has recently been named "Avenue of Champions" and decorated with murals.
