This neighbourhood is desirable being located in central west Edmonton. Having made it as one of the Top 10 neighbourhoods in Edmonton is no surprise, with it's convienence to Groat Road to access the southside, walking distance from the rivervalley trail system, hawerlak park and government hill park.
Westmount originally grew out of Malcom Groat’s homestead and has become one of Edmonton’s more family friendly neighbourhoods. Easy access to the downtown core as well as the University of Alberta and Whyte Ave gives Westmount all the convenience of a central location while keeping the security and friendliness of a family neighbourhood. The park in the center of Westmount is one of the biggest and oldest in Edmonton and offers a large variety of activities for kids of all ages.
A quarter of the residences were built prior to WWII, another quarter were constructed before 1960, an additional third were erected between 1961 and 1980, and the rest were erected since 1980. This make Westmount one of the most architecturally diverse neighbourhoods in Edmonton. The large majority of the Westmount area is occupied by single family detached houses. The trend in Westmount is a gradual increase in occupant owned residences which means currently over half the homes are owned by the people who live in them.
Groat Road, along Westmount’s western edge, grants residents quick access to the University of Alberta and Whyte Ave across the river. Jasper Ave attaches to the southern tip of 124th St giving the people of Westmount direct access to the downtown core. The Edmonton Municipal Airport is just a few blocks to the north east of Westmount.

In 1878, Malcolm Groat built his homestead on the land that is now the Westmount neighbourhood. The Groat homestead was annexed by the City of Edmonton in 1904 and 1910. Groat gradually sold his land to developers as the demand for residential lots increased. In spite of the general oversupply of residential lots in Edmonton, Westmount developed early due to its proximity to downtown Edmonton. Access to downtown was further enhanced by the extension of an electric streetcar line in 1910 and commercial space developed along 124 Street beside the line. Westmount, particularly the area bordering the Groat Ravine, established a reputation as an attractive residential area for wealthy and professional people. The Westmount Architectural Heritage Area (WAHA) governs the architectural heritage of the area. Westmount is home to many historic houses, often in the Craftsman or Four Square style.
