Aspen Gardens is a residential neighbourhood in south west Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, overlooking the Whitemud Creek Ravine.

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.[8]

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.
