Our Short Story

In 1970, the Government of Alberta put together the Mill Woods land bank. The idea was to create a large urban extension in Edmonton that would help combat the increasing costs of residential land in the city.

The City of Edmonton worked quickly, and by 1971, it had created the Millwoods Development Concept plan. Residential development began in Ekota soon after, while work started in Satoo and Menisa in 1974 and 1976 respectively.

The Knottwood Community League was formed on Mar. 14, 1977, at a meeting in Satoo Elementary School, where the residents resolved to provide programs and facilities for the three neighbourhoods.

For the past 40 years, these three neighbourhoods have formed a partnership that continues to provide Knottwoodians with a strong sense of pride and community spirit.

Knottwood Community League continues to bring together this great community.
