The Blackburne area was annexed to the City of Edmonton on January 1, 1982. Blackburne is located immediately to the south of the Bearspaw neighbourhood and to the east of the Richford neighbourhood.

The Blackburne neighbourhood was developed from the 1990s onward. The vast majority of the land within Blackburne is designated for residential purposes, with single-detached housing being the dominant housing form. Blackburn Park is located in the south edge of the neighbourhood, overlooking Blackmud Creek Ravine.

The neighbourhood is bounded on the north by the Anthony Henday ring road, on the west by 111th Street, on the south by the Blackmud Ravine, and on the east by Calgary Trail (Queen Elizabeth II Highway). The only entrance into the neighbourhood is located at its eastern border along Blackburn Drive.

The name “Blackburne” was derived from Blackmud Creek, which runs across the southern edge of the community, and in reference to “burne,” which is an old English word for stream or river.
