About Castle Downs & Northwest Edmonton
Northwest Edmonton remains one of the most family-friendly areas in The City. The area is culturally diverse and caters to families of all types. It offers the perfect mix of residential, retail and light commercial real estate that adds convenience to everyday living.
Excellent transit and opportunities.
Northwest Edmonton is well-positioned with public transit to all parts of The City via Northgate Transit Centre. Northwest Edmonton is also the most popular option for Military families, being only a few minutes away from one of the largest military bases in Canada- CFB (Canadian Forces Base Edmonton). The area has a long military history, anchored by the former army hub known as Griesbach, which is now being converted into one of Edmonton's most sought after new neighbourhoods.
Amenities and activities for everyone.
A standout attraction in North Edmonton is the Castle Downs YMCA and Recreation Centre. This centre acts as the community hub of Northwest Edmonton, with indoor and outdoor recreation facilities, including hockey rinks, soccer fields, a pool and spray/skate park. We also love Beaumaris Lake for its long and peaceful walking trails.
