Lynnwood is a residential neighborhood in west Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It became a part of Edmonton when the Town of Jasper Place amalgamated with Edmonton in August 1964. The neighborhood is bounded on the east by 149 Street, on the south by Whitemud Drive, on the west by 159 Street, and on the north by 87 Avenue. It is surrounded by several residential neighborhoods; namely West Meadowlark Park, Parkview, Meadowlark Park, , Jasper Park, Elmwood, Laurier Heights, Patricia Heights, Rio Terrace and Quesnell Heights
Over half of the homes in the neighborhood are single family houses on tree lined streets. On the north side of the neighborhood from the Meadowlark Park Centre is an apartment building complex called Whitehall Square. Situated on the site of the old Starland Drive-in Theatre, Whitehall square consists of several high rise buildings with more than five stories, as well as several low rise apartment buildings with fewer than five stories. There is also a low rise apartment block located at the north east corner of the neighborhood. Almost all the units in the apartment buildings are rented whilst all the single family dwellings are owner occupied.
Parents with school age children can send their children to either Lynnwood Elementary School in the Edmonton Public School System or the Our Lady of Victories Catholic Elementary School in Edmonton's separate school system. Junior high schools are located in the neighborhoods of Laurier Heights to the east and Parkview to the north east.
