Staffordville has been around for over 120 years. Like Hardieville, it used to be a village separate from Lethbridge, at least until 1913, when the city annexed it. Having once been a mining town, the majority of the community is single family housing, but there are a few multi-family properties.
Stafford Manor is just to the north, and it, too, is a small, single-family residential neighbourhood.
Amenities: Except for a community hall and a gas station, all commercial amenities are outside of the neighbourhood, with Stafford Plaza located across the street being the next closest retail centre. Staffordville is centrally located relative to other commercial centres like Park Meadows Mall, 13 Street North, and 2 A Avenue North. It is within walking distance from the commercial centre of Broadview.
The Vista Play Area is the only park in Staffordville. Stafford Park is the only one in Stafford Manor. Dave Elton Park is across the street from Staffordville and has baseball, soccer, and skateboard facilities. Both communities are on the coulee edge, providing easy river valley access.
Churches: The United Church and Jehovah’s Witnesses are the only churches in the neighbourhood, but Dutch Reformed and Presbyterian churches are within walking distance.
Each of the two communities is serviced by a single bus, and they are relatively close to the Northside transit terminal. Their proximity to Stafford Drive, 9 Avenue North, and Scenic Drive make getting elsewhere in the city pretty easy.
Schools: There are no schools in Staffordville or Stafford Manor, but Immanuel Christian High School, Pitawani School, and Senator Buchanan School are each just a short walk away. Wilson Middle School and Winston Churchill are easily accessible by car.
