With awe-inspiring views of Edmonton’s river valley, North America’s largest stretch of urban parkland, this community draws visitors from across the province. But the people who call Oliver & Grandin home wake up to those vistas every day. You could be one of them.

Oliver and Grandin Lifestyle

Oliver & Grandin may be one of Edmonton’s oldest residential neighbourhoods, but you’d never know it from the lively energy and ongoing renewal. The people who live here include entrepreneurs, artists, students, professionals and long-established residents who prize the area’s vibrancy, diversity and mobility.

The beauty of Oliver & Grandin is its rare juxtaposition of vast green space with urban sophistication. Networks of walking and bike trails carve through the area, providing endless hours of discovery, exercise and relaxation; tree-lined boulevards surround residents like a picture frame; you’re just steps away from Ezio Faraone Park, with its outdoor yoga, running steps and lush gazebos; and the postcard sunsets along Victoria Trail Promenade become a regular sight in your nightly routine.

Those drawn to water will appreciate the community’s easy access to Oliver Pool, the ornamental pond at Paul Kane Park, and the city’s most Instagrammable views of the North Saskatchewan. But if architecture is more your thing, Oliver & Grandin has that too – from the majestic silhouette of St. Joseph’s – Alberta’s only basilica – to the nearby Legislative grounds to the historical grandeur of pre-war properties like LeMarchand Mansion, with its stately Beaux Arts architecture, red brick façade and sandstone trim.

But it’s the food scene in Oliver & Grandin that truly wows. The community is a masterclass in eclectic dining thanks to local hotspots like Bar Clementine (think French Nouveau meets Manhattan chic) Grandin Fish & Chips (a prairie twist on the U.K. classic), Cibo Bistro (old-world Italian in a modern setting) and The Common (a gastro-lounge favourite among the afterwork set). Not to mention you’re just a short walk or LRT ride to such award-winning restaurants as Bundok (try the sea bream crudo), Uccellino (try the chicken liver with crostini) and Corso 32 (try everything!).

Finally, there’s the mobility advantage. With unbeatable transit and LRT routes, easy access to the University of Alberta (just a 15-minute walk or one stop on the LRT) or nearby MacEwan University, and idyllic positioning at the doorstep of downtown, your favourite new mode of transportation will be your sneakers.

MoneySense named Oliver & Grandin the Number 1 neighbourhood for Edmonton real estate in 2018, while Avenue magazine consistently places it in the city’s Top 5.


As for me, I love the community enough to call it home – and if you want to do the same, I’d love to make that dream come true. Text me at 780-416-0070 to start your journey.
