This friendly residential neighborhood showcases a broad variety of options for everyone from mobile, single people to families. Known as one of Edmonton's older neighborhoods, its development began in 1906. However, most construction took place primarily after World War II until the present, providing its virtual equal array of low rise apartment buildings (of fewer than five stories) and single family dwellings.
The diverse population benefits from an abundance of resources, making life as an Eastwood resident convenient and highly attractive for those with a competitive schedule. The Downtown core, the University of Alberta, and Commonwealth Stadium are easily accessible via the Coliseum LRT station located right at the eastern boundary of the neighborhood.
While both houses and apartments are available as rentals, those with children seeking to make Eastwood their permanent home have Eastwood Elementary Junior High School (operated by the Edmonton Public School System) or Gerard Catholic Elementary School (operated by the Edmonton Catholic School System) at their immediate disposal.
Most of the neighborhood is located south of 122 Avenue, and is bounded on the west by 89 Street and on the south by 118 Avenue. The portion north of 122 Avenue is bounded on the north by the Yellowhead Trail corridor, on the west by 86 Street, and 82 Street on the east.
Other communities in the area include; Eastwood, Elmwood Park, Alberta Avenue and Parkdale
