The Knottwood community comprises the neighbourhoods of Ekota, Menisa and Satoo in the southwest portion of Mill Woods bounded by 91 Street to the west, 66 Street to the east, 23 Avenue to the north, and Anthony Henday Drive to the south.

In 1970, the Government of Alberta put together the Mill Woods land bank. The idea was to create a large urban extension in Edmonton that would help combat the increasing costs of residential land in the city. The City of Edmonton worked quickly, and by 1971, it had created the Millwoods Development Concept plan. Residential development began in Ekota soon after, while work started in Satoo and Menisa in 1974 and 1976 respectively.  The Knottwood Community League was formed on Mar. 14, 1977, at a meeting in Satoo Elementary School, where the residents resolved to provide programs and facilities for the three neighbourhoods.

For the past 40 years, these three neighbourhoods have formed a partnership that continues to provide Knottwoodians with a strong sense of pride and community spirit.  Knottwood Community League continues to bring together this great community.

Knottwood Community League has a strong history of providing quality programs and a wide range of exciting events. Many of these initiatives are run in conjunction with partners such as the City of Edmonton and Edmonton Police Service.   In August of 2021 construction began on a community center to provide a new space for programs and events.  Visit their website for these details and more on what they have planned to make Knottwood an even better place to live, work and play.

Community hall is located at  445 Knottwood Road West, NW Edmonton, AB T6K 3N1.
