Crescent Heights is a neighbourhood (formerly its own village) in the northwest quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is located in the inner city, immediately north from Downtown. It is bounded to the north by the Trans-Canada Highway, on the east by Edmonton Trail, on the west by 4th Street NW, and to the south by Memorial Drive and the Bow River.
Crescent Heights was originally incorporated as a village on May 1, 1908. It was subsequently annexed by the City of Calgary in 1911 and established as a neighbourhood in 1914.
In 2006 it had a population of 6,082. Residents in this community had an median household income of $43,123, and there were 19.7% low income residents living in the neighbourhood.  As of 2000, 18.7% of the residents were immigrants. A proportion of 9.5% of the buildings were condominiums or apartments, and 6.8% of the housing was used for renting.
The community (and others) is served by Crescent Heights Senior High public school. Due to a shortage of high schools in north-east Calgary, Crescent Heights had a proportion of students bused in from Abbeydale, Marlborough, Marlborough Park and surrounding areas in the 1980s and 1990s.
