Neighborhood Profile: Sherwood
“Sherwood is the harmonious blend of a well-established mature neighborhood, primarily consisting of single family homes, speckled with the thought-out freshness of infill homes. Not originally an Edmonton neighborhood, Sherwood was one of the many communities forming the highest populated Alberta Town of its time, Jasper Place. As population grew it was decided roughly sixty years ago Jasper Place would amalgamate with Edmonton. Today the quiet, tree-lined streets of Sherwood are bounded on the west by 156 Street, on the east by 149 Street, on the north by 95 Avenue, and on the south by 92 Avenue. Familiar faces offering kind hellos from the locals enjoying an evening stroll or walking their family pets adds to the draw of this safe and friendly community. With more than 60% of the homes comprising of families with children, Sherwood elementary School is conveniently located within a 5-10 minute walk. There are four additional schools nearby including French Immersion and Christian. The Sherwood Community Park is centrally located offering a soccer field, greenspace, and playground for the enjoyment of all. Within the Sherwood boundaries you will find amenities such as a convenience store, medical office, insurance agency, Gospel Centre Pentecostal Church, pharmacy, daycares, restaurants, and liquor stores. More amenities are easily accessible with the Meadowlark Health and Shopping Centre located just to the southwest in the adjoining neighborhood of Meadowlark Park. Residents also highlight the convenience and proximity to the highly rated Edmonton Public Library – Jasper Place. Community anticipation rises with the construction of the Valley Line West LRT which will move northly down 156 Street enabling improved commutes and efficiently connecting the residents of Sherwood to other parts of the City.“- Misty Jespersen, Associate/REALTOR, Schmidt Realty Group Inc.
