Cumberland is a residential neighbourhood in the Palisades area of northwest Edmonton and is bounded by 153 Avenue to the north, 142 Street to the west, Cumberland Road to the south and 127 Street to the east. Prior to urban development the neighbourhood was in agricultural use.

Now, the neighborhood of Cumberland boasts a 5.66 hectare park located in its northeast quadrant. Pedestrian connections are provided through a series of pathways along linear parks that run throughout Cumberland. With a storm water lake located in the centre of the neighbourhood and single-detached homes designed around it, Cumberland has a unique elegance to its design. There is also a natural tree stand preserved within the neighbourhood south of 150 Avenue. These features provide residents with access to open green space and plentiful recreational opportunities that promote forged friendships and a spirit of community amongst neighbors.

Cumberland’s name is based on the theme within the Palisades area of adopting names that refer to early forts and posts. Cumberland was named to honor the first governor of the Hudson’s Bay Company, Prince Rupert, Duke of Cumberland.
