Parkallen is a residential neighbourhood in south Edmonton, Alberta, Canada located just to the east of the University of Alberta farm and the Neil Crawford Centre. Most of the neighbourhood development occurred after the end of World War II with eight out of ten residences constructed by 1960 according to the 2005 municipal census.
Most of the residences in the neighbourhood are single-family dwellings (81%). A further 15% are apartments in low rise buildings with fewer than five stories. There are also a few duplexes (3%) and row houses (1%). Approximately two out of three residences are owner occupied, with the remainder being rented. The average household size is 2.2 people, with close to eight out of every ten households having only one or two persons.
The population of Parkallen is comparatively mobile with just under half (49.2%) of the population having lived at the same address for more than five years according to the 2005 municipal census. Just under one in five residents (17.6%) have been at the same address for under a year, and another one in five (22.1.9%) have been at the same address for one to three years.
The neighbourhood is bounded on the north by 71 Avenue, to the west by 113 Street, to the south by 61 Avenue, and on the east by 109 Street.
Residents have good access to the University of Alberta main campus by travelling north along 113 Street. Travel north along 109 Street takes residents into the Old Strathcona area, and beyond into the downtown core. A short distance south of the neighbourhood is Southgate Centre. There is one school in the neighbourhood, Parkallen School. Also located in the neighbourhood is Violet Archer Park.
Commencing in 2008, residents were connected to the LRT system when the South Campus/Fort Edmonton Park station opened just west of the Neil Crawford Centre. In June 2009, the neighbourhood partook in an "eco-mobility" challenge to determine how well individuals could function without the automobile. Many residents succeeded in changing their travel modes as a result of the challenge.
Parkallen Stonehenge is a historical landmark located in central Parkallen. The two foot tall concrete cylinder's origins have confounded local anthropologists for many years. Carbon dating technologies estimate the monument at approximately 60 years old. It appears not to have load bearing capacity or to have been a part of any load bearing structures. In 2017, scientific crews attempted to determine the depth of the monument but were unsuccessful. Folk legend states that Parkallen Stonehenge reaches the upper mantle. In recent years, the monument has become a popular tourist destination.
