Not only is the neighbourhood set in a mature and stunning area of Edmonton, it has many amenities and activities for all ages.
The “Home To Candy Cane Lane” Community is a deep rooted neighbourhood in the heart of West Edmonton and is nestled between two ravines overlooking the North Saskatchewan River. With easy access to the Edmonton River Valley for hiking and bike trails, and abundance of parks, it makes the community a great destination for anyone to lay roots.
Crestwood is home to two schools – Crestwood School and St. Paul School and six churches – Bethel Apostolic Baptist Church, Crestwood Presbyterian Church, St. Andrew’s United Church, West End Christian Reformed Church, St John Catholic Church and West Edmonton Seventh Day Adventist Church.
There are many local businesses in the area making it easy for residents to stay within the neighbourhood and even walk to shops and stores. An easy walk to Cafe Blackbird before strolling to the park is a great way to spend an afternoon! Crestwood also provides easy access to West Edmonton mall and is only a 15 minute drive from downtown, making it a dream community for working professionals.
With redevelopment in the area occurring in the past few years there are newly built homes to choose from, as well as upgraded older homes. Large lots with trees, greenery and unique homes make it one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in Edmonton to live.
