Our History

Elmwood was originally part of the old Town of Jasper Place. Until its annexation by Edmonton in 1964, Jasper Place served as a residential alternative to living in the larger city. It is bounded by Whitemud Drive to the south, 170th Street to the west, 87th Avenue to the north, and 159th Street to the east. The neighbourhood was almost entirely developed during the 1960s, and most of the structures in Elmwood are single detached houses.

The schools and a small commercial site are centrally located and adjacent to the collector road. With a freeway and two major arterials forming three of Elmwood’s four borders, residents have good access to destinations in the city’s west end. The Misericordia Hospital and West Edmonton Mall are immediately located to Elmwood’s north and northwest.
