    Hello Neighbors, do you have a story to share about Ottewell Community ?

    It could be when you spent your childhood in Ottewell attending different programs, or stories that have been shared by family members. We are looking at building our history page. It has been 60 years since past executive board members voted to be a part of the Edmonton Federation Community Leagues of Edmonton.

    You can share your stories either by email – ottewell2212@gmail.com or call 780.465.7755 We will also accept written stories dropped off at the community hall mail box. Please provide contact information as we want to acknowledge all submissions.

    Let’s keep the community spirit alive by sharing our history!

  • Ottewell 60 Years Old

    Ottewell Community League is 60 years young this year (1961 – 2021) and we have lots to celebrate!

    “The area is named for the Ottewell family, who were among the first settlers south of the river in the 1880s”. The neighborhood is bounded on the west by 75 Street, on the east by 50 Street, on the south by 90 Avenue, and on the north by 98 Avenue and Terrace Road.

    The community is represented by the Ottewell Community League, established in 1961, which maintains a community hall and outdoor rink located at 59 Street and 93A Avenue.

    This year we will share history obtained from Community Archives , EFCL, and the City of Edmonton. If anyone has any history to share please let us know, by emailing OCLwebpage@gmail.com or drop a note of at the hall mailbox. Let’s share the stories from the past to ensure that we have for the future. ***Ottewell is a large residential neighborhood in east Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

    Watch for more information on Ottewell Community in the next edition of the SEV.
