Beaumaris is a residential neighbourhood in the Castledowns area of northwest Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It is named for Beaumaris Castle in Wales.

The neighbourhood is bounded on the south by 153 Avenue, on the east by 97 Street, on the west by Castledowns Road, and on the north by Beaumaris Road and 160 Avenue. To the south along 97 Street is Griesbach, the downtown core, and the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology.

Just over half (54.6%) of residences were constructed during the 1980s. Most of the remaining residences were constructed during the 1990s.[8]

According to the 2005 municipal census, the most common type of residence in the neighbourhood is the single-family dwelling. These account for just under one half (44%) of all the residences in the neighbourhood. Apartment style condominiums and rented apartments in low-rise buildings with fewer than five stories account for another four in ten (37%) of the residences in the neighbourhood. One in ten (11%) of the residences are row houses and one in 12 (8%) are duplexes.[9] Three out of four residences (77%) are owner-occupied while one in four (22%) are rented.[10]
