Sherwood Park is a hamlet in Strathcona County that is established in the eastern boundary of Edmonton and was first created in the 1950’s. It has become a popular place for commuters to Edmonton and features all the amenities that are perfect for active families. However, being only 3 km from the city limits, there are no restrictions to accessibility for residents here.
Although Sherwood Park is Alberta’s seventh largest municipality, it is still considered as a hamlet. That distinction has earned Sherwood Park the title of the world’s largest hamlet in the Guinness Book of World Records! This community is primarily residential, but has all the amenities that would be found in a typical suburb of a large city. Sherwood Park is part of the Strathcona County, which is a division of Alberta that has many distinctive features for residents. (Photo: Homeinedmonton)
