The Hamlet of Sherwood Park, AB
Did you know that although Sherwood Park has a large enough population to qualify as Alberta’s seventh largest city, it still retains its original status as a hamlet? Sherwood Park dates back to 1955, when it was founded on the Smeltzer family’s farmland, just east of Edmonton. Since a hamlet is defined as a settlement of humans with a clear geographic boundary, made up of more than four residences, with a name and with non-residential land – Sherwood Park still fits the bill!
To spend time enjoying the natural scenery of our favorite hamlet, we recommend that you wander through the trails at North Cooking Lake Natural Area. This Sherwood Park recreation area has many winding trails for hiking and observing local wildlife, such as moose, deer and snowshoe hare. Shaded picnic spots are plentiful, complete with firepits.
Another location to appreciate the great outdoors of Sherwood Park and Alberta, is at the Strathcona Science Provincial Park. You can paddle the lake, cross country ski, and snowshoe while overlooking the North Saskatchewan River and gazing at a lovely view of the Edmonton skyline.
Meet the Early Pioneers of Sherwood Park
Visit the life of early Ukrainian pioneers who settled the lands of Albert around the turn of the 19th century with a trip to the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village. This open-air museum puts history on display with role-players in period costume. There are more than 35 restored and relocated buildings, including a one-room school, blacksmith shop, grain elevator, sod house and three churches. Beware of the horses and wagons ambling by as you walk the dirt roads.
Local Entertainment & Culture
Festival Place is a lively multi-functional venue for community arts and business. This entertainment destination is the focal point of Centre in the Park, a new community development in Sherwood Park. Artists of all types – amateur and pros- are welcome on the stage, and Festival Place takes pride in presenting Alberta with outstanding programming and diversity. The sound system here is awesome, with acoustics and a layout that enables every attendee to hear and see clearly.
A surprisingly popular site to educate yourself and absorb local (and global) culture in Sherwood Park is at Strathcona County Library. Alongside the incredible collection of books, CDs, movies, and magazines, there is also a charming coffee shop and booths for friends to gather. When the weather is right, you can also sit outdoors and relax amidst the blossoming flower boxes.
We hope you love the sites of Sherwood Park as much as we do! To continue making the most of our picturesque local hamlet, remember to schedule regular eye exams at Aspen Eye Care.
