Callingwood South is a unique neighbourhood because all residential units are located in multi-unit structures. West Edmonton Village, located in Callingwood South and one of the larger multi-unit complexes found in Edmonton, has nearly 1,200 units of row housing, walk-up, and high-rise structures.
Likely due to its higher density, Callingwood South has a higher proportion of younger adult residents than the city average, and a slightly lower proportion of children under 19 years of age than the city average. The neighbourhood also has a much higher than average proportion of renters (72 percent of the total). Callingwood South has about twice as many residents and residential units as its similarly sized neighbour to the north, Callingwood North.
At the centre of the neighbourhood is a multi-purpose educational and recreation site. Callingwood Park and Recreation Centre are conveniently located north of 69th Avenue in Callingwood North. Callingwood South is bounded by arterial roads on all four sides. These roads provide good access to the west and southwest parts of the city. Residents of Callingwood South and surrounding neighbourhoods are served by a very high concentration of businesses and non-residential services.
