Town of Devon
If you’re looking at moving to a smaller town, living in a small community like Devon is both friendly and welcoming. See what Devon has to offer for you and your family members.
Devon is situated in the north central area of the Province of Alberta, lying 26 km southwest of the City of Edmonton. This community adjoins the south bank of the North Saskatchewan River Valley. It initially emerged as a service centre catering towards the oil and gas sector. Today, the new business ventures are helping to diversify its economy, while the oil industry still continues to dominate Devon’s business sector. In addition to it, the commercial sector is also growing and creating new opportunities for professional retail and service-oriented businesses.
Devon is home to many attractions and events throughout the year. Some of the nearby venues to take advantage of include:
The Devonian Botanic Garden: It is a scenic collection of attractive gardens that includes the excellent 5-acre Kurimoto Japanese Garden.
The Clifford E. Lee Nature Sanctuary: It is a 300-acre nature preserve comprised of meadow, marshes, pine, and aspen woodland that will be open to the public year-round.
