Crestwood in West Edmonton

History of the Crestwood Neighbourhood

An old facet of the Edmonton residential landscape, Crestwood was originally developed in the 1950’s as subdivisions known as Jasper Place and Capital Hill. Comprised predominantly of single family homes, over the years additional residences were added that include semi-detached homes as well as low-rise apartment buildings.

Despite the age of the community, many of the original homes have been replaced with newer models, however, there are still original homes scattered throughout. The homes here are typically larger than most throughout the city and house a generally older population. The age and inconsistent updating of homes and community features gives the area and eclectic and cozy feeling. It is a place where you can envision the generations of people who have lived there and it all adds up to quiet place where neighbours, are neighbours for life.

The River Valley is a prominent feature in this neighbourhood but it is also unique in the fact that it houses eight churches, two schools, an established park and an arena and curling club.

Crestwood Home Owners Association (HOA)?

In lieu of a Homeowner’s Association, Crestwood boasts a very involved Community League. The League is responsible for ice time at the local arena, holiday events, park redevelopment plans, community parties and Mom & Tot programs. This is believed to be the oldest and longest running Community League in the entire City.

Voluntary membership ensures that the league is comprised of only those passionate about the Crestwood Community, which can be seen in the variety of project they spearhead annually.
