LIVE IN WEST EDMONTON
West Meadowlark Park, an older residential neighbourhood in west Edmonton, was initially part of Jasper Place. When Jasper Place became amalgamated with Edmonton in 1963, West Meadowlark Park was recognized as a distinct neighbourhood, and named for a colorful local songbird. Development began in the 1960’s — when over half of all presently-standing homes were built — and continued into the 1980’s.
The community features a broad mix of housing. Most prevalent, at 45 percent, are detached single-family houses, followed by row houses at 20 percent. The rest are made up of high-rise and low-rise apartments and duplexes. Close to 70 percent of the units are occupied by their owners.
The community is bounded on the north by 95th Avenue, and on the south by 87th Avenue. !t extends west to east from 170th Street to 163rd Street.
This family-friendly neighbourhood contains two elementary schools, two high schools and assorted recreational parks and playing fields.
West Meadowlark Park is a conveniently-located neighbourhood. Those choosing public transportation benefit from the neighbourhood’s well-designed system of interconnected bus and train service, while good access to the Whitemud and Anthony Henday Drives allows for easy commutes by car to both the downtown core and the renowned West Edmonton Mall.
