QUESNELL HEIGHTS REAL ESTATE

With a total area of approximately 21 hectares, Quesnell Heights is one of the smallest residential neighbourhoods in the city. The neighbourhood only contains 120 homes, all of which are single-detached units, and contains fewer than 400 people. Quesnell Heights is located east of 149th Street and south of the Whitemud Drive to the North Saskatchewan River. Quesnell Heights’ land use consists entirely of residential dwellings built in the 1960s and 1970s.

Located in the centre of the neighbourhood is a one-hectare open-space recreation area. Residents of the neighbourhood have excellent access to the North Saskatchewan River Valley and other areas in Edmonton via Whitemud Drive. Fort Edmonton Park, one of Edmonton’s better-known tourist attractions, is located across the river from Quesnell Heights. Although Quesnell Heights has no community facilities, many are located in the surrounding communities, such as Rio Terrace, directly east of the neighbourhood, and Laurier Heights to the north.

The West Edmonton, Meadowlark, and Southgate Malls are only minutes away when using the Whitemud Drive, and residents have access to the University of Alberta, University Hospital, and Whyte Avenue areas when using Fox Drive.

The neighbourhood name was officially adopted in 1958, although it had been in use since at least 1912. The origin of the neighbourhood name is not definitively known, but it may have named after Dr. Phillip Quesnell, a well-known physician who came to the city in 1912. The neighbourhood may also be named for J.B Quesnell, a prominent local citizen in the late 1800s. A third possibility is that the neighbourhood was named in honour of Jules Maurice Quesnel, a famous French-Canadian clerk with the North West Company.
