Sweet Grass Homes For Sale - Edmonton, AB
The community of Sweet Grass occupies a roughly one and a half kilometer square region in the Century Park suburb and is located on the western side, below Greenfield. This neighbourhood not only centers around park lands but also incorporates nature preserves throughout the residential region. The result is a community that appears very rural for the dense woodlands, but is actually well populated and the site of many modern amenities.
Houses for sale in Sweet Grass include single and multi-family homes on private lots and townhouses with shared grounds. The use of wooded areas and natural features helps to preserve the traditional feel of the lands, but also gives neighbours a sense of seclusion without adding undue distance. This sense of country living is one way of honoring the historical use of this land as wild grazing fields and is an homage to how the area initially received its name.
This residential section is known for being a family friendly and closely knit community. Parents in Sweet Grass have many educational opportunities for children, including the Sweet Grass School and the Maria Montessori School. Even adult and continuing education is addressed at the Providence Renewal Centre, which houses the Burwell School of Photography, and offers a number of programs and courses.
Although Sweet Grass is only a kilometer away from the Century Park LRT station, driving commuters also appreciate the proximity to 111th Street and 119th for providing easy access into Edmonton. The area is also well dispersed with local and city bus stops, which makes getting around a simple task.
