Ottewell is a large residential neighbourhood in East Central Edmonton. The neighbourhood is bounded on the west by 75 Street,  the east by 50 Street, on the south by 90 Avenue, and on the north by 98 Avenue and Terrace Road. The neighbourhood was named after the Ottewell family, who were among some of the first settlers south of the river in the 1880s. The Ottewells were active grain farmers and later dairy farmers who later opened the Ottewell Coal Company and Campbell & Ottewell Flour Mills. Today, Ottewell’s historic log cabin is on display at Fort Edmonton Park’s 1885 Street.

Ottewell is a fairly large community with a population of approximately 5,869 residents. The majority of homes (79 %) in the area are single family houses and low level apartment buildings account for the majority of the remainder (12%), the remaining percentage is comprised of duplexes and townhouses.  Residential construction in the neighbourhood occurred mostly during the first fifteen years after the end of World War 2 and was substantially compete by 1980. 

Ottewell is a fairly high density community and while not abundant with parks or green spaces, the community does contain Ottewell Park which features a skating rink, playground and small splash park for the children to enjoy. The lot sizes are also quite large in Ottewell meaning most single family homes have significant sized yards for families to enjoy along with the mature foliage of an established community. There are also many amenities within the vicinity for resident convenience, amenities include The Capilano Mall and the Edmonton Public Library.
