Glenwood is a large neighbourhood in west Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The neighbourhood has a mixture of residential and commercial development. Glenwood became a part of Edmonton in 1964 when the Town of Jasper Place amalgamated with Edmonton.
The Edmonton Transit Service's Jasper Place terminal is located at the northeast corner of the neighbourhood.
In the City of Edmonton's 2012 municipal census, Glenwood had a population of 5,095 living in 2,437 dwellings, a 3.5% change from its 2009 population of 4,921. With a land area of 1.77 km2 (0.68 sq mi), it had a population density of 2,878.5 people/km2 in 2012.
Much of Glenwood was developed in the 35 years following the end of World War II, with three out of four residences being built between 1946 and 1980. Almost half (49%) of the residences are single-family dwellings, with an almost equal proportion (46%) of apartments. Another 4% of residences are duplexes, with 2% of the residences being row houses. Over half (55%) or residences are rented, with just under half (45%) being owner occupied.
