Great Reasons to Live, Build, and Grow in Devon

Located south west of the City of Edmonton, Devon is nestled along the banks of the North Saskatchewan River.  Staying connected to nature is an integral part of our local culture, which is why we are the western anchor of the River Valley Alliance and have over 14 kilometers of trails throughout the river valley and Town. As a part of the River Valley Alliance, we are working towards connecting the entirety of the North Saskatchewan River Valley with nature trails in collaboration with our partners. 

Being in touch with nature doesn’t mean that we give up on big-city amenities as Devon is within 20 minutes of Edmonton, and even closer to the Edmonton International Airport for all your travel escapes.  We are also incredibly close to two major employment hubs – the Acheson Industrial Area and the Nisku Industrial Business Park.  

Our local Lions Campground hugs the shore of the North Saskatchewan River and is the envy of the region. Next to the campground is the Devon Golf & Curling Club, which is home to an 18-hole golf course in the summer, turning into cross country ski trails come winter. Other can’t miss spots in and around Devon include: Castrol Raceway, University of Alberta Botanic Garden, Rabbit Hill Snow Resort, Canadian Energy Museum (the home of Leduc no. 1), and the Clifford E. Lee Nature Sanctuary. For more attractions & amenities, head over to Discover Leduc Region for more information.

If you are thinking of raising a family in Devon, you’ll be happy to know that Devon is home to six schools covering Kindergarten to Grade 12: John Maland High School, Riverview Middle School, Robina Baker Elementary School, Holy Spirit Catholic School, and Devon Christian School. We will also keep you safe and secure in Devon with a general hospital, full service RCMP facility, and local fire rescue and ambulance services.  Devon is also pursuing a historic expansion of our current arena, transforming it into a year-round recreation facility with a second sheet of ice, an indoor pool, walking track, and fitness space.

Devon is incredibly business friendly if you’re planning on extending your roots beyond family.  If you choose to invest in Devon, you will be happy to hear that we do not have a business tax and are always looking for innovative ways to collaborate with our business community. With this, we’re currently developing a new business park and welcome any outreach to our Economic Development team.

Now that we have all of that out of the way, take a look at the map below to see growing communities in Devon.
