Neighbourhoods in Red Deer, Alberta

Red Deer has many neighbourhoods and sub-neighbourhoods (or extensions of the original neighbourhood).  I will divide them into North- West, North- East, South- East and South- West (as per 50th St and 50th Ave) and not include every sub-neighbourhood, so as to keep this a little shorter….  Click here to see a general break down of Red Deer Neighbourhoods (it doesn’t include quite all of them).  

In the North- West, there is Fairview, Highland Green, Johnstone Park, Kentwood, Normandeau, Oriole Park and Riverside Meadows.  

The North- East has Clearview, Michener Hill, Pines, Rosedale, Waskasoo, Woodlea, Timberlands and Garden Heights.

New Schools in Red Deer

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

New Schools in Red Deer!

For the start of the 2014 school year, Red Deer had 2 new elementary schools!  École Barrie Wilson Elementary School in the Timberlands neighbourhood and Father Henri Voisin School in Clearview Ridge.  Both of these openings alleviated the oversized classes in the south east neighbourhoods.  Red Deer now has a total of 44 schools from elementary to high school; 24 public and 20 Catholic.

 barriewilson rdpl.org fathervoisin frhenrivoisinschool.ca

Another 2 schools will be built in Red Deer north- end by 2016!  A Catholic high school, “St Joseph’s High School”, will accommodate 900 to possibly as many as 1200 students, plus, an elementary school that will accommodate 500 students.  This will help with enrolment pressures in Red Deer’s north end communities.  Read this article in the Red Deer Express for more information on the upcoming new schools
