Sherwood Park’s Heritage Trail System

Thu, 26 Sep by Sonia Tarabay

Explore the great outdoors in Sherwood Park!

Well I don’t like to say this to you…but Summer is over and Fall is upon us.

As much as I would love hot Summer weather year-round, there are some wonderful benefits about living in Sherwood Park during the Fall months:

  • Temperature. It’s warm enough to enjoy outdoor walks.
  • Positive Real Estate Market. House hunting in Autumn is not as bad as house hunting during the Winter.
  • Scenic Streets. Sherwood Park streets feature an array of beautiful leaves in shades of brown and gold.
  • Pumpkins. Yes, pumpkins are now in season. This includes: Pumpkin pies, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and (of course) pumpkins for carving!

So if you want to enjoy nature and soak in the Autumn air, I recommend exploring the Heritage Park Trail System. It’s an awesome off-road trail network in an around Sherwood Park that extends 42 km long! The trail system is dog-friendly and lets residents of all ages explore the meandering paths by foot, bike, roller-skates, or even in a wheelchair. In 2008, Sherwood Park developed a new river valley link inside the Heritage Parkway Trail System- which means even more opportunities for excitement for you and your family!

For those of you looking to buy a Sherwood Park home for sale, did you know many Sherwood Park Communities are situated near the Heritage Park Trail System. Get in touch with me and I would be more than happy to show you Sherwood Park homes for sale on the market.

Emerald Hills Shopping Centre

Thu, 19 Sep by Sonia Tarabay

In addition to my strong passion for the Real Estate industry, I absolutely love to shop, whether it’s hunting for my next leopard-printed addition to my wardrobe, or buying my clients house warming gifts nothing can keep me away from a good sale. So you can imagine my excitement when I heard the announcement about the landmark retail development, Emerald Hills Centre.

Emerald Hills Shopping Centre Since news of the shopping centre hit the stands, multiple businesses have opened in the pedestrian-friendly shopping district. Emerald Hills is currently home to clothing outlets, boutiques, Ladies Wear, Electronics & Sporting Goods, Housewares, Salons and Spas, Men’s Wear, and have many more on the way! Located on 5000 Emerald Drive in Sherwood Park, Alberta; you should “head for the hills” and check it out.

“Emerald Hills is situated on 44 acres of land on the east side of Sherwood Park between the Yellowhead Highway (Highway 16) and Emerald Drive…Emerald Hills was designed to be a pedestrian friendly, walkable centre that features music, wide pathways for easy walking, and upgraded landscaping. Upon completion, the centre will also feature 5 Plazas with public art.”Emerald Hills Centre Website

By the time this major shopping development is complete, many Sherwood Park residents won’t have to drive to Edmonton and back to get their fashion-fix. Happy Shopping this weekend!

Check Out Sherwood Park’s Art Scene

Thu, 12 Sep by Sonia Tarabay

There’s always something exciting happening in and around Sherwood Park, from family activities to outdoor festivities, our city truly sets the stage for entertainment. In addition to this, Sherwood Park also has a dynamic Art Scene. Our exciting public gallery, Art Gallery @ 501 features exhibitions, art collections, as well as Education Programs.

I encourage all Sherwood Park residents to visit our local art gallery at least once, you can spend as much or as little time there as you would like, and enjoy the atmosphere. Below are some of Sonia’s Quick Tips when visiting your first Art Gallery:
Art Gallery

  • Don’t Be Shy. There is no need to feel intimidated or afraid, no one will expect you to answer art-related questions or give your opinion about the artwork or brush strokes used.
  • Check Before Taking Pictures. While some exhibitions are more interactive and casual, other exhibitors have a zero camera policy. It never hurts to double-check the photography rules.
  • Keep An Open Mind. You don’t have to work as a professional Artist to enjoy your exhibition. When you attend keep an open mind and know that it’s okay if you don’t like or understand something.

Going to an art gallery is a great way to relax, meet other Sherwood Park residents, be inspired, and even shop! For more information on Art Gallery @ 501 visit their website.

Community Profile: Clarkdale Meadows

Sherwood Park is a bustling area filled with truly beautiful neighbourhoods. One of the many communities I enjoy visiting is Clarkdale Meadows. Located on the Northeast quadrant of Sherwood Park, Clarkdale Meadows is filled with natural green spaces and beautiful character homes placed on winding tree-lined streets.

Its surrounding communities are Summerwood to the North, Davidson Creek to the Northeast, and Heritage Point to the South. Baseline Road makes up its southern boundary, while Highway 21 marks its eastern border. Its other boundaries are composed of Clover Bar Road to the West and Lakeland Drive to the North.
