The Schonsee neighbourhood structure plan (NSP), approved by City Council in 2002, is located within the Lake District in north Edmonton. Schonsee is one of Edmonton’s developing neighbourhoods, and as of the 2006 Federal Census, less than 300 people were living in the neighbourhood. Schonsee is bounded by 167th Avenue to the south, 66th Street to the east, 82nd Street to the west, and 173rd Avenue to the north.

The plan for the neighbourhood is to develop a primarily residential community with a variety of housing options. The ultimate housing split is planned at 65 percent low-density residential units and 35 percent medium-density residential units. Medium-density housing will be developed along the neighbourhood’s collector roads and near the neighbourhood park site. The projected population build-out for this neighbourhood is over 3,000 residents, including a student generation of just under 400 school-aged children.

A district commercial site will be located in the southwest corner of the neighbourhood at 82nd Street and 167th Avenue. A 1.8-hectare park is located north of the stormwater management lake, and a smaller 0.3-hectare park is located on the northeast shore of the lake. These amenities provide residents with outdoor recreation space and provide a focal point within the community. The eastern third of the Schonsee neighbourhood has been designated as a special study area; no development is proposed for lands within that area.

Neighbourhoods in the Lake District have names referring to lakes in different languages, a concept that recognizes Edmonton’s ethnic diversity. The Schonsee neighbourhood name is derived from the German word "schon," meaning “beautiful,” and "see," meaning “lake.”
