Crestwood, an older residential neighbourhood in west Edmonton, was primarily developed in the 1950’s and the 1960’s. Detached, single-family homes predominate in this pleasant neighbourhood, with some condominium-style apartments and duplexes in evidence as well.

This is a well-established community, with a demographically older population — and larger households — than the city average. Households of two or more people account for 76 percent of all Crestwood households, with families of four or more members making up 25 percent. The community has many long-term residents, and around 70 percent report having no plans to move.

Crestwood is one of the more prosperous neighbourhoods in Edmonton, with the average household income twice that of the city average. During the Christmas season, it is home to the locally-renowned Candy Cane Lane, a section of elaborately decorated houses that attracts drive-by viewers and foot traffic.

This family-oriented community also is home to many churches, as well as Crestwood Elementary Junior High School and St. Paul Elementary School. The Crestwood Community League, believed to be the oldest continuing community league in the country, offers an assortment of programs and events to promote civic pride.

The neighbourhood is defined on the east by the North Saskatchewan River Valley, and on the west by 149th Street. The MacKenzie Ravine creates a natural boundary on the south, while the McKinnon Ravine defines the area to the north. This enviable location affords residents excellent access to hiking trails and bike paths in the scenic ravines and river valley.
