Quesnell Heights is one of the smallest residential neighbourhoods in the city. Quesnell Height's residential land use consists entirely of single homes built in the 1960s and 1970s. Located in the centre of the neighbourhood is a one hectare open space/recreation area. Although Quesnell Heights has no community facilities, many are located in the surrounding communities. Major malls are only minutes away when using the Whitemud Freeway.
