About Sherwood Park & Strathcona County
Sherwood Park is Alberta's fifth largest city. Wait. Nope, not city - technically a hamlet! It is the urban centre of Strathcona County, which enjoys the unique distinction of being a "specialized municipality". Over 71,000 people make their home in Sherwood Park and the community grows annually - read more. Strathcona County encompasses Sherwood Park, all the rural areas around and eight other hamlets. Total population is almost 100,000 people - read more.
About Fort Saskatchewan & Other Spots
Fort Saskatchewan is its own city, almost entirely surrounded by rural Strathcona County, and bordered by Sturgeon County on the other side. It is home to about 25,000 people and has grown really rapidly in recent years - read more. Other fun spots nearby include the quaint little hamlet of Lamoureux, just across the river from Fort Sask; Elk Island National Park, which we're fortunate enough to have bordering our communities; Bruderheim and Lamont are all reasonably close. Go East of Edmonton is a great regional tourism website that highlights some great things about all places - you guessed it - east of Edmonton.
