#Sifton Park#

Sifton Park is one of the Clareview district's seven residential communities, bordered on three sides by major highways and on the south by the Kennedale Ravine. Sifton Park was subdivided for the first time in 1912, during one of Edmonton's early land booms. Despite its early start, the neighborhood remained outside the city limits for many years. The City of Edmonton annexed the Sifton Park area, as well as much of present-day northeast Edmonton, in 1961. Sifton Park's future remained uncertain during the 1960s due to worries about residential growth in the region due to its closeness to petrochemical and other big industrial operations. By 1972, Edmonton's City Council had authorized construction of the first phase of the Clareview Outline Plan region, putting an end to the worries. The same year, new development plans for Sifton Park were authorized. The building industry hurried to keep up with Edmonton's oil-driven economic boom, and much of the residential acreage in Sifton Park was constructed before 1977. By the end of the 1970s, most of the development had been completed. The educational and recreational amenities of the community are placed in the heart of the neighborhood. Pedestrian and bicycle mobility are encouraged along a variety of paths across the neighborhood. A Light Rail Transit (LRT) station is located north of 137 Avenue, and several streets in the area are only accessible by Edmonton Transit buses. The Honourable Arthur R. Sifton (1858-1921), Premier of Alberta from 1910 to 1917, was honored with the name Sifton Park. Sifton attended the Paris Peace Conference after WWI as a member of the federal Union government under Sir Robert Borden in 1919.
