Do you live on an Awesome Block?

Are your neighbours kind, helpful and friendly? Do you take care of each other in tough times? Do you celebrate together and make sure everyone is included?

The City of Edmonton is looking for the most Awesome Blocks in the city!

Share a story about what your block does that makes it special, an event they hold that is helping neighbours connect or something inspirational that has happened where you live. You can also share photos and videos!

The deadline for submitting nominations is 12pm (noon) MST, on Sunday August 22, 2021.

Want to Host a Block Party or Play Street?

The focus of Block Parties is on building connections and relationships between neighbours living in the same street.

The idea of a Play Street is to bring neighbours together for celebration or play. They allow neighbours to play together in residential streets closed off to vehicle traffic.

The City supports both Block Parties and Play Street events through planning, operational and permitting support. The purpose of the Block Party and Play Street program is to connect neighbours living in the same street (i.e. not intended for larger events that invite the general public to attend).

Be sure to submit your applications at least 14 days before your event.

Passing of Councillor Bryan Anderson

Bryan Anderson, longtime Edmonton City Councillor and friend of the Oak Hills Community League, passed away at the age of 78 earlier this month. Our condolences and thoughts are with Bryan’s wife, Sharin, and family during this difficult time.


A beloved Edmonton high school teacher and sports coach, Bryan continued to champion the growth of sports and recreation in his 19 years of public service as city councillor for Ward 5 and Ward 9. Bryan was instrumental in the construction of world-class sport and recreation infrastructure across Edmonton, including our own Terwillegar Recreation Centre. In 2019, the park beside the Terwillegar Recreation Centre was renamed the Bryan Anderson Athletic Grounds to honour his contributions and he was inducted to the city’s sports hall of fame last June.


The Oak Hills Community League was fortunate to work with and learn from Bryan in his six consecutive terms as city councillor. His passion for community building and the incredible impact he made as an educator, coach and public servant live on with his legacy.

Have Your Say - Density/Zoning Changes

Posted June 20, 2018

Urgent Input Needed

City of Edmonton administration has proposed changes to the Zoning Bylaw 12800. The revisions contained in this amendment that affect Oak Hills include:

  • Making semi-detached and duplex housing permitted uses in the (RF1) Single Detached Residential Zone.

  • Removing the current location restrictions for duplexes and semi-detached in these zones

  • Creating an exemption to allow semi-detached housing to be subdivided into its two halves, regardless of previous subdivisions on a site

Based on what we have been told, the City has already conducted public consultation on this subject. We were NOT aware of this consultation, and our residents share this feeling. We have heard concerns that the public consultation process has not been transparent and that the City has not communicated the potential consequences or safeguards to existing homeowners in terms of traffic, architectural, HOA membership, etc.

Oak Hills Community League has been asked to submit comments by July 9, 2018.

In an effort to provide more accurate comment, we would like to hear from all residents in our area, including nearby neighbourhoods. Time is very tight here, please complete the survey as soon as possible.

Survey closes the morning of July 8th

Community Fence Painting 2018

Join your neighbours & bring a brush to refresh a stretch of our street-facing and park-facing fences around the community! Refurbishment of these fences is an essential element of:

  • enhancing the local area,

  • ensuring that our neighbourhood feels inviting and safe,

  • encouraging a sense of pride & ownership of our neighbourhood,

  • and maintaining high property values & desirability to live in one of Edmonton's best neighbourhoods ​

Peeling paint, discoloration and non-uniform paint application makes our community look less desirable, encourages graffiti and shows an apathy to maintain our properties.

Show you care.. JOIN US for Community Paint Day 2018!

June 3rd

12:00 - 3:00 PM

Sign up here to confirm you can help!

Come for one hour or three, whatever you can make work. Refreshments will be provided after and it's a great way to meet some neighbours.
