Aspen Gardens is a residential neighbourhood in south west Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, overlooking the Whitemud Creek Ravine. The neighbourhood "was designed to appeal to individuals and families in search of quiet, affluent residential neighbourhood characterised by larger homes, mature trees, and attractive paths for pedestrian and bicycle travel." According to data from the 2001 federal census, most of the residential development in the neighbourhood occurred during the 1960s when seven out of ten (71.8%) of the residences in the neighbourhood were built. Most of the remaining residences (22.9%) were built during the 1970s. Four out of five residences (79%) of residences, according to the 2005 municipal census, are single-family dwellings. The remaining residences are apartment style condominiums in low-rise buildings with fewer than five stories. Substantially all (95%) of residences are owner-occupied. There are two schools in the neighbourhood, both operated by the Edmonton Public School System. They are Westbrook Elementary School and Vernon Barford Junior High School. The community is represented by the Aspen Gardens community league, established in 1966, which maintains a community hall and outdoor rink located at 120 Street and 39A Avenue.
