Location & Description of Meadowlark

Meadowlark is a west end neigbourhood in Edmonton located between 163th street, 156th Street and 87th Avenue to 95th Avenue. It sits west of Sherwood and Jasper Park, south of Glenwood and north of Elmwood and Lynnwood. Notably Meadowlark includes Meadowlark Mall, which is in the southeast corner. This shopping centre includes grocery stores, a gas station and a heck of  a lot of medical services. The recently redesigned Jasper Place Library is also in the neighbourhood.

Construction in Meadowlark Park was almost entirely completed by 1970. There were only a handful of properties developed in the late 1990s and 2000s. Infills are not very common in Meadowlark Park. This is likely because of the fact that most homes in the neighbourhood are well maintained, are still quite expensive and that the lots in Meadowlark are not very large.
