BRANDER GARDENS REAL ESTATE

The Brander Gardens area was annexed to the City of Edmonton in 1960. In 1961, the area was included within a plan for phased development of a large portion of southwest Edmonton.

In 1969, Brander Gardens was included within the Riverbend-Terwillegar Heights Outline Plan. The Outline Plan detailed a development scheme for a comprehensively planned community to be, in many respects, self-contained. Riverbend-Terwillegar Heights, with a predicted ultimate population of 95,000 people, was the first of Edmonton’s residential areas to be planned on such a large scale.

In 1967, just prior to preparation of the overall plan, Brander Gardens, called Glamorgan at that time, was the subject of a subdivision re-plot. The remnants of this earlier subdivision are evident in the large lots in the neighbourhood’s west side adjacent to Whitemud Creek.

Almost all Brander Gardens housing was constructed during the 1970s. Most dwelling units are in multiple-unit housing structures (36 percent row housing and 38 percent low-rise apartments) clustered along the major traffic route, Riverbend Road, and are adjacent to the neighbourhood’s multi-purpose recreational sites and neighbourhood shopping centre. The overall purpose of the plan is to provide efficient travel while minimizing the negative effects of traffic on residential streets.

Interior residential streets have curvilinear and cul-de-sac patterns. A number of strategically placed pathways, including the open space of a pipeline right-of-way, promote pedestrian and bicycle travel through the neighbourhood. Brander Gardens is particularly favoured for its location adjacent to the river valley. Residents have access to river valley park trails and to Fort Edmonton Park just to the north.

The residents of Brander Gardens are served by businesses located in the Riverbend Shopping Centre. Proximity to the Whitemud Freeway facilitates access to other major commercial and employment areas in the city.

Brander Gardens was named in honour of George Brander, who came to Edmonton in 1921 and established a peony garden in the Bonnie Doon Area. The gardens were an attraction for Albertans until the 1940s and were the source of most of the peonies in Alberta.
