AUDREY ABUAN - RE/MAX Real Estate REALTOR®
With a total area of approximately 21 hectares, Quesnell Heights is one of the smallest residential communities in the city with 120 houses. Although Quesnell Heights has no community facilities, many are located nearby in Rio Terrace and Laurier Heights. The West Edmonton, Meadowlark, and Southgate Malls are only minutes away when using the Whitemud Drive, and residents have access to the University of Alberta, University Hospital, and Whyte Avenue areas when using Fox Drive.
The origin of the Quesnell Heights name is not definitively known, but it may have named after Dr. Phillip Quesnell, a well-known physician who came to the city in 1912 or may also be named for J.B Quesnell, a prominent local citizen in the late 1800s. A third possibility is it was named in honour of Jules Maurice Quesnel, a famous French-Canadian clerk with the North West Company.
