About the Town of Devon, Alberta

Located on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River, the town of Devon first set down roots in 1947 following one of Canada's largest oil discoveries. Since then it's retained its small town atmosphere and community spirit despite being located so close to Alberta's capital city. With a population of 6,500 living in 2,000 homes, ranging from suburban-style single-family houses to quiet, secluded acreage lots surrounding the town site. 70% of the land base in Devon is dedicated to residential communities, giving Devon a friendly-atmosphere and family-first focus. Devon's proximity to the Edmonton International Airport has provided ample economic growth opportunities, and a number of Bed and Breakfast and tourism businesses have be extremely successful here.

Located only a short 15 minute drive from the city of Edmonton, residents of Devon have fast and easy access to big-city amenities and services while they live and raise their family in a small-town atmosphere. In particular, Devon offers a wealth of parks, gardens, and outdoor adventure opportunities that active families love to take part in all year round. And during the winter months, nothing beats sitting in your backyard after dinner with a hot cup of cocoa and watching the Northern Lights dance across the night sky.

Despite its small size, Devon has its own public library, is serviced by two school boards, has its own hospital, and offers multiple recreational facilities. Featured local attractions are the locally renown and highly regarded Devonian Botanic Garden and the Devon Golf and Conference Centre. Nearby you'll find the Clifford E. Lee Nature Sanctuary, one of Alberta’s watchable wildlife sites. From its safe and quiet streets to its pleasant landscape, Devon is an ideal place to live, work and play.
