About Lendrum Place
Lendrum Place is located in southwest Edmonton. It is bounded to the north by 61st Avenue, the south by 61st Avenue, the east by 111th Street, and the west by 115th Street.
Lendrum Place is predominantly residential in character. Approximately 75 percent of all residences are single-family homes, and the remaining 25 percent is composed of low-rise apartment housing. The apartments are located adjacent to bus routes.
The schools and community league site are central to the neighbourhood. A commercial plaza with a variety of businesses is located along 111th Street, one of the three major roads that bounds the neighbourhood. Additional shopping facilities are located at the nearby Southgate Centre. The University of Alberta research farm (approximately 160 acres) is located to the west and northwest of the community. The Lendrum Slough was located nearby but has long since disappeared; it was replaced with well-proportioned lots arranged in a modified grid street pattern.
Lendrum Place residents enjoy easy access to most parts of Edmonton, thanks to a central location and connections with a well-developed roadway network. The South LRT (light rail transit) extension running along Lendrum’s East boundary is now in operation, providing residents with improved public transportation options.
This neighbourhood was named in honour of Robert Lendrum, one of Edmonton’s early land surveyors.
Lendrum Place residents benefit from the close proximity to Whitemud Drive freeway to the south that crosses the city from the east and west. Residents are also a short drive from South Campus/Fort Edmonton Park LRT station at 116th St. and 65th Ave. providing easy public transit access to downtown and northeast Edmonton on the Capital Line. The Edmonton Transit System also maintains good bus service in the neighbourhood.

Why I Live in Lendrum Place
Erin Sawyer and her family moved to Lendrum from Vancouver in January 2013 after her husband took a position at the University of Alberta. Not long afterwards she got involved in her community league to meet other neighbours and learn about the community. As a stay-at-home mother with two young daughters, she said she loves Lendrum because it is close to many kid-friendly places like the John Janzen Nature Centre, Fort Edmonton, the Edmonton Zoo and the Saville Centre. She said her neighbours are very friendly and quick to lend a hand. Recently her family was renovating their backyard and were struggling to remove a large concrete patio when a neighbor, they had not yet met, showed up and spent three hours moving concrete. “This story is by no means singular,” said Erin. “The friendliness of our neighbours and the close relationships we have built with other young families here would make it hard to leave. I also appreciate the sense of community that long-time residents have helped establish here.”
The neighbourhood is close to the 165 stores and services found within Southgate Centre as well as the Southgate LRT station. The 160-acre University of Alberta Farm is located to the west and northwest providing a significant buffer from future urbanization. This agricultural research facility is considered one of the best in North America.
Sports, Recreation and Parks
While the neighbourhood has a modest selection of sports and recreational opportunities, it is close to several large public facilities. Nearby facilities are located at the University of Alberta’s Saville Sports Centre at 11610 65 Ave. NW where basketball, gymnastics, curling, tennis, fitness classes and volleyball take place. Foote Field, at 11601 68 Ave. NW, is another multi-sport facility with facilities supporting aquatics, climbing, fitness, track and field, football, soccer and rugby. A third nearby facility is the Confederation Leisure Centre, at 11204 43 Ave. NW, featuring a salt water pool, whirlpool, steam room, a fitness complex, indoor ice arena, outdoor tennis courts, sports fields, and a running track. The community league is involved in activities such as Tai Chi, karate, skating, soccer, crafts, girl guides, pottery, dancing and weight loss programs. The only park within the neighbourhood is Lendrum Place Park that features a track, soccer fields, a baseball diamond, rink and the Lendrum Community Hall at 11335 57 Ave.
