Graydon Hill is a future neighbourhood in southwest Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The neighbourhood is named after Rosetta Graydon, founder of the Edmonton Humane Society,[6] originally the Edmonton Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).[7] She also played a role in the designation of Edmonton as Alberta's provincial capital.[7]

Graydon Hill is located within the Heritage Valley area and was the original Heritage Valley Neighbourhood 13 within Heritage Valley Servicing Concept Design Brief (SCDB).[7][8]

It is bounded by 141 Street SW to the west, Ellerslie Road SW to the north and the future Heritage Valley Trail SW to the east.[9] The future Paisley neighbourhood is adjacent to Graydon Hill to the south, while the future Hays Ridge neighbourhood is to the west across 141 Street SW.[8]

History[edit]

Heritage Valley Neighbourhood 13 was originally named Graydon Heights on August 21, 2012.[10] It was officially renamed to Graydon Hill four months later on December 11, 2012.[7]
