Old Glenora is one of the best known residential neighbourhoods in Edmonton. It features many of the more beautiful historic homes in the city, and has also been experiencing residential infill consistently over past decades, making this neighbourhood an interesting study in residential architectural forms in Edmonton over the past century.

Glenora Abundant Community Initiative


Imagine… your ideas about the neighbourhood joining with others’ ideas to help make it even better, in the short and long term.

 Discover… the gifts and talents of your neighbours.  Connect with others who enjoy similar things.  Together, we will use our abilities to find ways to improve our neighbourhood – care for seniors, gardening, coaching, babysitting, etc…

Expect… a neighbor or two from your block to initiate a casual conversation about your vision for the neighbourhood and the activities, interests and skills you have and are willing to share with the neighbourhood.
