The City of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada has over 30 neighbourhoods.



Downtown Lethbridge strictly speaking is bordered by the Oldman River valley on the west, Crowsnest Trail and the CPR rail line on the north, Stafford Drive (9 Street) on the east and 6 Avenue on the south. It is not very large and contains very little in neighbourhood structure. It is, however, home to Chinatown, a two block area on 2 Avenue, west of Galt Gardens.

The downtown core is also the commercial centre of the city, hosting most of the city's banks and several accounting and law practices, including national firms.

It also serves as a transportation hub. Whoop-up Drive, the busiest roadway in Lethbridge, connects West Lethbridge to downtown. Scenic Drive also provides downtown with a connection to the United States via Highway 4 and the Lethbridge County Airport via Highway 5. Downtown also has two connections to the Crowsnest Highway, which provides direct access to British Columbia and indirect access to Calgary and Saskatchewan. In addition, the city's only Greyhound terminal is located downtown. The city's main transit terminal is downtown also; half of the city's bus routes converge on 4 Avenue.
