Kenilworth is a residential neighbourhood in south east Edmonton, Alberta, Canada located just to the north of Whyte Avenue.

According to the 2001 federal census, approximately eight out of ten (77.7%) of the residences in the neighbourhood were built during the 1960s. Most of the remainder were constructed between the end of World War II and 1960.[6]

The 2005 municipal census indicates the most common type or dwelling in the neighbourhood is the single-family dwelling. These account for four out of every five (81%) of all the dwellings in Kenilworth. Another one in eight residences (12%) are duplexes.[7] The remaining 7% are apartments in low-rise buildings with fewer than five stories. roughly eight out of ten residences (82%) are owner occupied with the remainder being rented.[8]

There are three schools in the neighbourhood. The Waverly Elementary School and the Kenilworth Junion High School are operated by the Edmonton Public School System. The remaining school is the Ecole Jeanne D'Arc.

The neighbourhood also has an arena, the Kenilworth Arena.

The neighbourhood is bounded on the west by 75 Street, on the east by 50 Street, on the south by 82 (Whyte) Avenue, and on the north by 90 Avenue.
