AUDREY ABUAN - RE/MAX Real Estate REALTOR®
Cumberland is located within the Palisades in the northwest sector of the city. Homes for sale in Cumberland Edmonton are located within a short commute north to the Edmonton Garrison.
Cumberland is a predominantly low-density residential community, with over 90 percent of residential units comprised of stand alone houses which began development in the 1990s, but most of the construction of residential homes took place in the early 2000s. A 5.66-hectare park is located in the northeast portion of the Cumberland, and a small lake, is located in the centre of the neighbourhood, with single detached homes designed around it.
Cumberland’s name is based on the theme within the Palisades area of adopting names that refer to early trading posts and forts. Cumberland House was the first Hudson’s Bay Company inland trading post. The post was named to honour the first governor of the Hudson’s Bay Company, Prince Rupert, Duke of Cumberland.
