In Edmonton’s 2016 municipal census Parkallen’s population was put at 2,374 people living in 1,128 homes, a 3% rise on the 2014 figure of 2,303.
Land area is 0.85 sq km (0.33 sq m) giving the neighbourhood a density figure of 2,729.9 people per sq km..


The bulk of expansion came after World War II with around eight out of every ten residences built by 1960, according to the 2005 municipal census. Single family dwellings make up around 81% of the community total. Around 15% are low-rise apartment buildings. Row houses and duplexes, triplexes and fourplexes make up around 4% of the homes surveyed. Infill building is said to explain why there are many more duplexes and fewer single-family homes. Builders for the most part are subdividing lots, and building two single family homes or duplexes on previous lots where just one home existed before.
Around 66% of homes are occupied by their owners. The remainder are rented. Average household size is 2.2 people. Nearly eight out of every ten households have just one or two occupants.

Just under half the neighbourhood residents were listed at the same address for more than five years, according to the 2005 municipal census. Also noteworthy was the fact one in five residents were at the same address for a year or less. A further 22.6% were in the same address for one to three years.

Community Development

In 2008 the community joined the Edmonton Light Rail Transit system with the opening of the South Campus/Fort Edmonton Park station. The system consists of 18 stations on two lines operating on 24km of track. In June 2009, the neighbourhood took on a so-called “eco-mobility” challenge. It was designed to determine how well people function without the use of automobiles. Many Parkallen inhabitants have changed their mode of travel as a direct result.
