MAYFIELD REAL ESTATE
The Mayfield neighbourhood is located in west Edmonton. It is bounded to the north by 111th Avenue, the east by 156th Street, the south by 107th Avenue, and the west by Mayfield Road.
The bulk of residential construction within Mayfield took place in the 1950s and 1960s and continued slowly into the early 1980s. Mayfield’s streets are a good example of the modified grid pattern that became popular after World War II. While the majority of housing units are single-family, the neighbourhood also includes several multi-family sites. While Mayfield is bounded by major roadways, it experiences very little through traffic; it is buffered by landscaped boulevards along 107th Avenue and a noise barrier along Mayfield Road and 111th Avenue.
A central school and park site defines the heart of the neighbourhood, and smaller parks are strategically located throughout to provide residents with amenity space. This mature neighbourhood features a total of four parks and two schools.
A small commercial element is located in Mayfield, and another commercial development is located at the corner of 111th Avenue and 156th Street. Major commercial amenities are located nearby in Mayfield Common, a regional shopping centre located along Stony Plain Road and Mayfield Road. The neighbourhood is surrounded by industrial neighbourhoods to the north and west, and by residential neighbourhoods to the south and east.
The name for the neighbourhood was chosen through a naming contest in 1954. Mayfield was named in honour of Wilfrid R. “Wop” May, a civilian aviation pioneer and World War I fighter pilot. May founded Edmonton’s first air service in 1919 and established the Edmonton and Northern Alberta Aero Club in 1928. He was inducted into Canada’s Aviation Hall of Fame in 1973.
