The three neighbourhoods of Patricia Heights, Rio Terrace and Quesnell Heights form a triangular and closely-knit community in the city of Edmonton. These three neighbourhoods are bordered on the north by Whitemud Drive, on the south east by the North Saskatchewan River Valley, and on the south west by Patricia Ravine. Patricia Heights is located west of 156 Street.

Due to its location, vehicle access to Patricia Heights and the two other neighbourhoods is limited to two bridges over Whitemud Drive, one at 156 Street and one at 159 Street. This helps to keep the community quiet and ideal for those raising children and looking for a quiet community. Even with this limited access, residents do have easy access to Edmonton amenities including West Edmonton Mall, Fort Edmonton Park, the University of Alberta and the shops and restaurants on Whitemud Drive - all accessible via Whitemud Drive.

For pedestrians and cyclists, there is additional access to the neighbourhood via  bike trail that runs through the Patricia Ravine and additional pedestrian overpasses over Whitemud Drive. This bike trail also connects Patricia Heights to the nearby neighbourhood of Westridge.

This relaxed and nature-filled neighbourhood features a number of outdoor green spaces including Patricia Ravine, nearby Rio Terrace Park and a one hectare park in Quesnell Heights. The Edmonton Valley Zoo is nearby and the Edmonton Transit System provides excellent access to city amenities. To help keep people active and connected, the three neighbourhoods of Patricia Heights, Rio Terrace and Quesnell Heights have one joint community league. The Edmonton Public School Board operates the Patricia Heights School
