This residential neighbourhood was among the first in the city to be built with a curvilinear street pattern. That means more land was dedicated to residential structures instead of roads. Despite this, residents can still easily access different amenities like the Downtown core, Meadowlark Shopping Centre, Misericordia Hospital, and West Edmonton Mall. It is car-friendly. There are also around 10 bus lines and stops nearby.
Cycling is also a good mode of transportation in Laurier Heights. A short walk from most homes can take residents to Edmonton Valley Zoo. A small shopping centre in the neighbourhood provides convenience. Within the community, you can find a centrally located park site and school. Residents can also choose from assigned schools, both public and Catholic. The designated public schools are Laurier Heights Elementary and Junior High School and Ross Sheppard High School. For Catholic schools, there are Our Lady of Peace, St. Paul Elementary School, St. Rose Junior High School, and St. Francis Xavier High School.
Residential homes in the area boast unique architecture. While most of them are single-detached dwellings, there are also low-rise apartment buildings. No matter which type of residential structure you choose, you get access to a scenic view.
