AGM Postponed

Our Annual General Meeting, planned for October 7, has been postponed until further notice. We're working on setting a new date  within the next few weeks. Meanwhile if you're interested in sitting on our board, let us know!

Stay tuned to our website for further details. 

Welcome to Eastwood, a vibrant community conveniently located close to Edmonton's downtown core and its picturesque river valley.

 

A historic and beautiful neighbourhood with mature Elm and Ash trees  lining the residential streets, Eastwood is full of character and home to some of Edmonton's best local dining and festival experiences. Our neighbourhood also has several parks and schools, making it ideal for families.

Eastwood's central location makes it easy to connect to major roads and public transit, including the LRT, allowing for quick travel throughout the city.

Our community league is driven by volunteers who live and work in the neighbourhood. Our community is your community! So come out to one of our events, become a member, or volunteer with us - we'd love to have you!

We acknowledge that the land on which we are located is Treaty 6 territory and a traditional meeting ground and home for many

Indigenous peoples, including Cree, Saulteaux, Niitsitapi, Métis and Nakota Sioux Peoples. 

Snow Removal

We're hoping to get a grant from the City of Edmonton to offer free snow removal this winter, for Eastwood seniors and people with disabilities.

Want to help create a mosaic tile mural?

We're adding a mural to the exterior of Eastwood hall, and need hands-on people to help out !   Workshops are happening in January and February.

Enrollment will be limited. Stay tuned for more information. 

If you'd like to take part, get in touch with us at info@eastwoodhub.org or 780-477-2354.

We'll be following all COVID-19 precautions. 

We're looking for new board members

Our board has a vacancy for the following positions:

  • Secretary

  • Treasurer

  • Vice President

Being part of a community league board is a great way to contribute to your community, or make the first step toward higher aspirations. Many of Edmonton's ward councillours and even our mayor started out as board members with their community league.

About Eastwood and

Eastwood Community League

Development in Eastwood began in 1906, making it one of Edmonton's oldest neighbourhoods. After WWII, as Edmonton became an important centre of industry, commerce, and a gateway to the North, Eastwood and adjacent neighbourhoods grew rapidly and contained a healthy mix of residential and commercial development.

As the city initially expanded suburban development, it was common for families to leave core neighbourhoods like Eastwood and relocate to these new, modern locales. However, as the decades have passed, this trend has reversed. Many people are now seeking out our community because of its character, history, and central location. 

Today, revitalization efforts and renewed investment from homeowners and commercial stakeholders have reinvigorated this historical community. Eastwood is being rediscovered by Edmontonians as a fantastic place to live and grow a family!

Eastwood Community League was established in 1923, and has a long history of community-building and engagement. Our goal is to build a sense of community among Eastwood neighbours, and to build support for our local businesses. So, join us at one of our events, eat at a local restaurant, or invite your neighbour over for a barbeque. 

After all, this is Eastwood. It's your neighbourhood, and it's a great place to live!

COVID-19 updates

In early October, Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta's Chief Medical Officer, announced the latest voluntary guidelines for the Edmonton region.

We'll be making the following adjustments:

  • asking private indoor events to be limited to 15 maximum

  • if an event is more than the voluntary maximum, we'll continue to ensure renters follow all current guidelines, including wearing a mask

 

AHS is asking that residents limit their cohort number to 3. For most people this means their household, their school and a program such as yoga or a sports team.

For information on the current guidelines:
