Laurier Heights

LIVE IN WEST EDMONTON

Laurier Heights is a well established residential neighbourhood in the west end. The community is defined on the north by 87th Avenue, the west by 149th Street, south by the Whitemud Drive and east by the North Saskatchewan River Valley.   

The neighbourhood, which owes its name to eighth Canadian Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier, is composed primarily of detached, single-family dwellings, with a small number of low-rise apartments as well. The majority of construction took place between World War 2 and 1960 with a third of the home constructed in the 1970’s. This is a well established and quiet area with many residents over the age of 60. The average home price in Laurier Heights is currently sitting at approximately $986,150. 

There are ample opportunities for outdoor recreation in and around Laurier Heights. Residents can take advantage of nearby Valley Zoo, a family-friendly petting zoo, as well as Laurier Park, a popular site for picnicking. Hawrelak Park, accessed from a footbridge in the River Valley just northeast of the neighbourhood, offers scenic hiking trails.
