The Woodcroft name has been in use since 1907 and was descriptive of the treed area upon which the neighbourhood was built. Located in the northwest district and bounded by four major roadways: 111 and 118 Avenue, 142 Street and Groat Road on the west side Woodcroft is surrounded by a mixture of residential neighbourhoods and light industrial subdivisions. Woodcroft is home to Coronation Park and the Telus World of Science.

Coronation Park is a large park occupying most of the southwest portion of the neighbourhood. Other attractions within the park include an ice arena, a small football stadium, a lawn bowling facility and the Peter Hemingway Fitness and Leisure Centre, formerly the Coronation Pool. The neighbourhood is also home to the Woodcroft Branch of the Edmonton Public Library.

Westmount Centre is located in the southeast portion of the neighbourhood at the northwest corner of 111 Avenue and Groat Road. It was the first major shopping mall of its type in Edmonton.

Other facilities in the community include an indoor ice arena and swimming pool, library, community league and elementary, junior high and senior high schools.
