Ellerslie is bounded on the south by Ellerslie Road, on the north by the Anthony Henday Drive , on the east by 66 Street, and on the west by 91 Street. Wernerville comprises the easternmost portion of the neighbourhood. The name Ellerslie was derived from the name Ellerslie House, believed by many to be the birthplace of William Wallace, a Scottish insurgent against Edward I of England. Others believe that the neighborhood was named by the brothers John and James McLaggan who were owners of the first store in the area, after a character in a novel by Sir William Scott.

The most common type of residence in Ellerslie is the single-family dwelling, which accounts for approximately 66% of all homes. Row houses make up another 20% followed by apartment style condominiums and a few duplexes. However, all homes in Ellerslie are owner occupied.

The neighbourhood features several natural tree stands and numerous small parks that are all connected via a series of strategically placed pathways and trail systems. This provides green space and recreational amenities for residents and contributes to an easier-to-achieve healthier lifestyle.
