Crescent Heights is a neighbourhood (formerly its own village) located in 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.

Crescent Heights is represented in the Calgary City Council by the Ward 7 councillor. The community has an area redevelopment plan in place.

The community will be linked to the city's CTrain rapid-transit system at 9 Avenue N Station when construction of the Green Line is complete in 2027.
