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. The neighbourhood was almost entirely developed during the 1960s, and most of the structures in Elmwood are single detached houses.
Elmwood 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 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.
In the City's 2016 census, Elmwood had a population of 2,721 people living in 998 dwellings. 70% of the home are single detached, with 92% being owner occupied. The most interesting statistics are found in Elmwood's age and gender distribution. There is no clear majority demographic for either in our community. We are split almost 50/50 for male to female, with each age demographic being quite even. View the Elmwood Neighbourhood 2016 Census here.
