Average Listing Price

This is a market figure only and variations may not indicate a change in the price for any particular property.
Delwood is a mature suburban neighbourhood developed primarily in the 1960s. The neighbourhood is bounded by 137th Avenue to the north, 82nd Street to the west, 132nd Avenue to the south, and 66th Street to the east. The Belvedere neighbourhood, which provides commercial amenities along Fort Road and the Belvedere Light Rail Transit (LRT) station, is located directly east of Delwood.
The neighbourhood includes a variety of housing types, including single and semi-detached homes, row housing, and low-rise apartments. The neighbourhood design was a popular one during the time it was subdivided. Interior streets follow a modified grid pattern oriented around small pocket parks and a larger park/school site along Delwood Road.
The schools are centrally located, and commercial land uses are situated at the corners of the neighbourhood. Josef Chelen Park, located in the northeast corner of the neighbourhood, was named after a Polish-born market gardener in the Beverly Area.
This neighbourhood has existed since the early 1900s and was likely named in honour of Edward Delegare “Del” Grierson, a prominent land owner and politician. Delwood replaced the old subdivision names of Industrial Centre, Queen’s Park, and East Delton.
Delwood residents benefit from the close proximity to the Yellowhead Trail to the south heading east and west and the Fort Road/Manning Drive corridor to the east heading northeast to Fort Saskatchewan and southwest towards central Edmonton. The neighbourhood is also a few minutes' drive or bus ride from the Coliseum LRT station at 118th Ave. and 76 St. and the Clareview LRT station at 139 Ave and 48th St. The Edmonton Transit System maintains bus service in the neighbourhood.

Why I Live in Delwood
Christie Mattiussi, 49, is a long-term Delwood resident. She attended St. Vladimir Catholic Elementary, St. Cecilia Catholic Junior High and Archbishop O’Leary Catholic High School before beginning her career in nursing and health care education. Christie was born, raised, married and now lives with her husband in a four-bedroom bungalow on a corner lot with a view of the city’s skyline. She and her husband raised their three daughters in the home. Her oldest daughter, now an adult, liked Delwood so much that she bought the house next door to her parents. “This community is just so beautiful. You have every amenity within walking distance... it’s just a great place to raise a family,” she said.
