Stillwater, briefly known as Golden Willow, is a future neighbourhood in west Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.[5] Subdivision and development of the neighbourhood will be guided by the Stillwater Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP).[2] It is located within the Riverview area of Edmonton and was originally considered Riverview Neighbourhood 2 within the Riverview Area Structure Plan (ASP).[5] Stillwater is bounded on the north by The Uplands, east by River's Edge, southeast and south by Grandisle, and west by Parkland County.[1][5]

The five future neighbourhoods in Riverview were originally named by Edmonton's Naming Committee on June 25, 2015, with Riverview Neighbourhood 2 being named Golden Willow.[6] The developers of Golden Willow and two other adjacent future neighbourhoods subsequently appealed three of neighbourhood names to City Council's Executive Committee.[7] The Executive Committee overturned the naming decisions for the three neighbourhoods and Golden Willow was renamed Stillwater.[8]
