Garneau is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Prior to 1912, it was part of the City of Strathcona. It is named after one of its first inhabitants, Laurent Garneau (ca. 1840-1921), a former Manitoba Métis rebel and Hudson's Bay Company employee who with his wife and family settled there around 1874.
In the river valley immediately below Garneau are the Kinsmen Park, the Kinsmen Sport Centre, and the John Walter Museum. The central location of the neighbourhood also gives residents access to downtown Edmonton, Whyte Avenue, and many other areas of the city.
The Garneau community is home to three playgrounds, one located beside the Community Arts Centre, west of 109th street and 84th avenue, and two on the property of the Garneau Elementary School on 109th street and 87th avenue, one specifically designed for toddlers and preschoolers.
The community is represented by the Garneau Community League, established in 1921.
