Southwest Edmonton Real Estate: 
Community of Garneau

The Southwest Edmonton community of Garneau is a historic neighbourhood that stands out as one of the most sought-after areas in the city. Repeatedly voted as one of the best communities in Edmonton, Garneau's appeal lies in its unique location next to both the University of Alberta and Whyte Ave, offering residents a trendy, old-world atmosphere like no other.

The name Garneau itself has historical significance, derived from Laurent Garneau, a Metis supporter of Louis Riel who played a role in the 1860 Red River Rebellion. Settling in the area at a time when Edmonton's population was just around 100 people, Garneau left a lasting legacy that is still felt in the community today.
