Carlisle is located south of 145th Avenue, north of 137th Avenue, west of 124th Street and east of 113A Street. It was named after an 11th century castle in northern England. Like much of Edmonton, it was annexed as part of the city in 1971. Development picked up shortly thereafter and around 60% of the neighborhood’s units date back to the 1970s.

Carlisle has a mix of various housing styles. Single detached houses are the most common, followed by row houses, semi-detached homes, and low-rises. As with its neighboring communities in Castledowns, Carlisle is home to a significant Arabic community and this means it’s not unusual or difficult to find a halal grocer or Islamic school, providing a strong cultural comfort for middle-Easterners newly arriving in Canada. Residents working at the nearby Canadian Forces Base will appreciate the easy commute.

Carlisle has a centrally located primary school, community league, parks and recreation area (including two hockey rinks), all which contribute to making it an attractive potential neighborhood for families. Households in tend to be larger than the city average and children’s laughter often echoes throughout.
