Dave Elton Park is a very well used out door complex located on the corner of 6th Avenue and Stafford Drive North. It was named after David Horton Elton who happened to be the mayor of the City of Lethbridge from 1935 to 1943. The Dave Elton Park is home to a number of baseball diamonds which are all fenced in and extremely well maintained. This park is very well used and is an important part of organized sports in our city. Directly across the street, also along Stafford Drive, is the Immanual Christian High School, which fits into this very mature, quiet community. The park is also home to the BMX track and also on site is the Lethbridge Skate Park for BMX and skateboard enthusiasts. It was built in 1999 as a multi-purpose skate park. It is an 1850 square meter play area of contoured concrete that features a bowl and concrete obstacles. Surrounded by trees and grass, it is a perfect area for family enjoyment.
Most of the homes in this area are raised bungalows with about 900 sq ft of main floor living area and full basements. Over the years, many of the homes have seen some major renovations which helped keep the modest housing market fairly strong in the area. The homes are mostly original and the past few years have seen some “in-fill” multi-family and single family detached homes popping up. Only one block from Dave Elton Park there is Senator Buchanan Grade School which too makes this neighborhood very appealing to young families. Transportation and convenience stores dot the neighborhood, making it an easy place to call home.
