Discovering Sophie’s Way

In Memoir by Lea

A city street sign with Sophie's Way written on it.

Who is Sophie and why does she get her own Way? I’ve been looking for information on Sophie’s Way in Edmonton for a few weeks. I’ve done internet searches on the paved trail twisting upwards from the Victoria Park Golf Course and Driving Range as well as talked to City of Edmonton officials. So far, Sophie and her Way remain a mystery.

In today’s Covid-19 world, I can’t go to the library to find Sophie’s Way. The internet, the vast pit of information it is, comes up empty when it comes to the name. But I can ask you, via the web, if you know anything about the sign. E-mail me if you can shed some light along the way. Thanks!
