Windermere is bounded on the south by the future realignment of Ellerslie Road, on the east by 170 Street SW/Terwillegar Drive, on the northeast by Anthony Henday Drive, and on the west and northwest by the river valley. The name for this neighbourhood most likely originates from a town of the same name located in Cumbria, England. The name Windermere was likely formed from the words “winder,” which means “to take one’s breath away,” and “mere,” which refers to the boundary of an area or a significant landmark. Edmonton’s Windermere Estates, featuring large estate homes on gracious lots that overlook the city’s most significant natural asset, the river valley, appropriately evokes the neighbourhood’s characteristics through its name.

The vision outlined in the long term Windermere plan is to create an attractive, walkable and sustainable suburban community that takes advantage of natural amenities, such as the river valley, while protecting environmental assets. Once complete the neighbourhood will include a mixed-use commercial centre designed as a neighbourhood focal point, and a series of parks, pathways and institutional facilities which will be integrated strategically with residential development.
