Average Listing Price

Donsdale is a small residential neighbourhood located along the banks of the North Saskatchewan River Valley and within the West Jasper Place South Plan area. The neighbourhood is bounded by 53rd Avenue to the north, Lessard Road to the west, the Wedgewood Ravine tributary on the south, and the river valley to the east.
The neighbourhood experienced the bulk of its development in the late 1990s and early 2000s, but pre-existing country residential development runs the length of the river valley’s edge. A significant wildlife habitat exists within the river valley and ravine systems that surround the neighbourhood. Donsdale was planned to provide an attractive residential environment while conserving and integrating development with existing natural features of the area, including the preservation of significant viewpoints.
The predominant dwelling type within Donsdale is single-detached homes (93 percent of units), but medium-density housing in the form of low-rise apartments is located along Lessard Road, and the plan includes the intention to develop 35 percent of the units as multi-family housing once Donsdale is complete. As of 2008, the neighbourhood was still under development.
There are no commercial or institutional sites either existing or planned for the neighbourhood, so residents must travel outside their neighbourhood to reach all amenities and services. A small neighbourhood park, located strategically to overlook the Wedgewood Ravine, provides residents with an attractive lookout point, as well as access to the local ravine system.
Donsdale is named in honour of Frank Doncaster, who owned a large tract of land in the area in the mid-1940s. After annexation to the City of Edmonton, the use of the name continued.
