11648 85 Street , Edmonton
The three-storey school, at 11648 85 Street, was designed by George E. Turner and constructed by Pheasey and Batson for $100,000. It officially opened in April 1913, delayed one month by a $10,000 fire.
Parkdale was similar in design to McCauley School, with a traditional facade of brick with Bedford stone trim, Gothic detailing, Tudor arches, a date stone that reads “1912” and a name stone high atop its parapet. Its paired boys and girls entries are framed with sandstone surrounds.
