Cameron Heights is located moments away from the Anthony Henday Drive in southwest Edmonton. Shops, services, restaurants, groceries and more are just a five-minute drive east or west on Anthony Henday. Bounded on the north and east by the North Saskatchewan River and Ravine, and on the north and west by Wedgwood Ravine, this is one of the most desirable locations in all of the Greater Edmonton Area.
The plan for Cameron Heights incorporates low- and medium-density residential and commercial development, located strategically around natural features of the neighbourhood. A central park area has been designed to provide a focal point for the community and is also intended to house an elementary school and community facility. Pedestrian walkways are planned throughout the neighbourhood to provide links through the neighbourhood and into natural areas.
The proximity of three natural ravine systems (Wedgewood Ravine, Cameron Ravine, and Smith Road Ravine) and the North Saskatchewan River Valley are the most prominent features of the neighbourhood. The neighbourhood is designed primarily as a residential community, but one commercial site is planned for the main entrance to the community and is intended to serve the needs of local residents. To the northwest of Cameron Heights is the Wedgewood Heights neighbourhood, and to the southeast, located within the river valley, is the City’s E.L. Smith Water Treatment Plant.
