Edmonton Neighbourhoods – Beaumarais

Named after the Beaumaris Castle in Wales, Beaumaris is a residential area that is located in northwest Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It is part of the large track of land annexed by the City of Edmonton in 1971 to accommodate its growing population.

Location

The Beaumaris neighborhood is bounded by 97 Street on the east and on the west by Castledowns Road. North of the area is the Beaumaris Road and the 160 Avenue and to the south is the neighborhood of Griesbach, the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and the downtown core.  The Beaumaris Road runs down the center of the neighborhood and serve as the boundary between Beaumaris and Lorelie in the northeast.

Development

Development in the area started in the 1970s and continued until the 19080s. The federal census of 2001 showed that 26.4% of the residential structures were constructed during the 1970s and 54.6 were built during the 1980s, with the remaining construction done in the 1990s.

Data from the 2005 census list some facts about the Beaumaris residences. Of the residences in the area, the most common is the single family dwelling taking up 44% of the total. An additional 37% are apartment style condominiums and low rise apartments no higher that four stories. Row houses comprise 11% and the remaining 8% are duplexes.

Commercial services in the neighborhood are provided by the Lake Beaumaris Mall located on CastleDowns Road. A large park on the west end offers outdoor space and recreational facilities for the residents.

Like most of the neighborhood in the Castledowns area, the neighborhood’s name was selected by the area developer to echo famous castles. Beaumaris is a great castle in Wales. To give credence to its name, the houses enclosed by Castle Keep and Beaumaris Lake creates and illusion of a fortress and moat.
