The Silver Berry neighbourhood, adjacent to the Bisset neighbourhood in Mill Woods, is located within the Meadows Area Structure Plan (ASP) and defines the west-central portion of the ASP. Mill Creek runs the length of the neighbourhood’s northern border and provides a significant natural asset for Silver Berry residents. In addition to MillCreek, the neighbourhood is bounded by 17th Street to the east, 23rd Avenue to the south, and 34th Street to the west. Prior to urban development, the southern portion of Silver Berry was used for agricultural cultivation and the northern portion of the neighbourhood, adjacent to Mill Creek, was left in its natural state.
Silver Berry features public access to Mill Creek and also incorporates a variety of other parks and open space corridors to provide excellent access to outdoor amenity space for residents. Two utility rights-of-way exist within the neighbourhood, one running east-west and the other running north-south, and both have been landscaped as linear parks.
Silver Berry contains a variety of housing types, including: single and semi-detached homes, row housing and apartments. The neighbourhood plan includes several sites for community level commercial space, which have not yet been built out; in the meantime, however, residents have access to a variety of services, commercial and employment opportunities in adjacent Mill Woods, at South Edmonton Common and at the Edmonton Research Park located west of the neighbourhood along 23rd Avenue. A large school and park site is located in the centre of the neighbourhood, adjacent to a linear park and surrounded by residential land use.
Silver Berry is named after a shrub that bears grayish-white berries.
