Community Profiles

Welcome Home To Aspen Trails!

Edmonton’s bedroom communities offer a quiet and convenient lifestyle, while still being located within a short distance of the big city. Sherwood Park is adjacent to the east side of Edmonton, accessible from a number of major transportation routes, including the Anthony Henday, Whitemud, and Sherwood Park Freeway.

While Sherwood Park is a quiet suburb, you will still find all of the amenities you can find in Edmonton. Here are six reasons why you should consider living in Sherwood Park’s Aspen Trails community.

  1. Extensive trail system in Aspen Trails

It’s right there in the name! In Aspen Trails, you are right in the centre of an extensive system of green spaces and naturalized areas. This pedestrian friendly community has been designed with outdoor activity in mind, and there is a network of paved mixed-use paths that feed directly into Sherwood Park’s Heritage Trail path system.

  1. Have your cake, and eat it too

With easy access to downtown Edmonton, you can enjoy a quiet life in a beautiful community, while still being able to work your daytime job in downtown Edmonton. A quick commute on 101 Avenue will bring you from your garage door to your office parking stall in a short 23 minutes. This commute time is similar to what you would find if you were working within Sherwood Park!

  1. Shop until you drop (or run out of cash)

The Emerald Hills Shopping Centre is located within easy walking distance (on those extensive paths!) and offers a huge selection of leading retail shops. Anchor stores include Bed Bath & Beyond, Winners, Sportchek, Marshalls, and Walmart, and there is an assortment of clothing and home stores. If you need a break from shopping, you can get your nails done at Binh’s Nails, or stop for a drink or bite at one of the many restaurants.

  1. Did someone say food?

I hope you’re hungry, because the options for food in the area are endless. Whether you are in a hurry or looking for a place to enjoy a good drink, you’ll find it within a short distance from your home in Aspen Trails.
