Blackmud Creek is a creek in Edmonton that flows into Whitemud Creek.[1] The creek starts at Saunders Lake East of Nisku and runs Northwest into the City, joining Whitemud Creek in the neighborhood of Twin Brooks.

Blackmud Creek's name is an accurate preservation of its native Cree-language name kas-ki-te-oo asiski.[2]
