Laurier Heights is located in west Edmonton. The neighbourhood is bounded to the north by 87th Avenue and Buena Vista Road, the west by 149th Street, the south by Whitemud Drive, and the east by the North Saskatchewan River valley.
Laurier Heights was one of the first residential neighbourhoods built with the curvilinear street pattern. Residential land use consists almost primarily of single-detached dwellings, but over 20 percent of units within the neighbourhood are located in low-rise apartment buildings. The neighbourhood features many homes with a scenic view of the river valley.
A centrally located school and park site form a focal point within the interior of the community. A park located by 78th Avenue and 141st Street is named after Wildred Gilroy Webb (1885–1961), an early pioneer. The City’s Valley Zoo and recreational area, a popular attraction for children and adults alike, is located in the adjacent river valley.
Laurier Heights has a small shopping centre, which provides various services to residents in the neighbourhood. 149th Street provides residents with easy access to Whitemud Drive (east–west) and other amenities north of the neighbourhood.
