West of downtown Edmonton, Crestwood is a calm, residential area with large lots and mature trees on land that’s in between two ravines with views from multiple directions over the North Saskatchewan River.
It’s a beautiful location, ideal for families who want to live relatively close to the centre of the city but with all kinds of bike paths, hiking trails and other river valley recreational opportunities. The real estate here starts in the mid-six figures and runs into the millions. Although the average number of people per household is less than three, it’s almost all single-family homes (nine out of 10 properties), with some apartments. There are many original, renovated homes (first built after WWII) as well as plenty of brand-new builds.
Crestwood runs east-west from the Edmonton River Valley to 149 Street and north-south from the MacKinnon Ravine to the MacKenzie Ravine. Stoney Plain Road takes you downtown and 149 St runs south to Whitemud Drive.
