Allendale is a residential neighbourhood located in south west Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The neighbourhood is named for the Allen family, who farmed the area before it was annexed by the City of Strathcona in 1907.[7]

Residential development in Allendale commenced prior to the end of World War II. Approximately one residence in eleven (9%) were constructed at this time according to the 2001 federal census. Approximate half the residences in the neighbourhood (48.1%) were constructed between the end of World War II and 1960. One in three (34.6%) of residences were constructed during the 1960s and 1970s. A small number of residences were constructed after 1980.[8]

Seven out of ten (72%) of residences are single-family dwellings, according to the 2005 municipal census, making them the most common type of home in the neighbourhood. Just under one in seven (15%) are rented apartments in low-rise buildings with fewer than five stories. Another one in eight (12%) are duplexes.[9] Just over half the residences (54%) are rented, with the remaining 46% being owner occupied.[10]
