Located just northwest of Edmonton, St. Albert gives you access to the downtown core within an hour but spares you the busyness of a dense population.
1. The real estate market
Everyone has been talking about real estate over the past couple of years, but the market in St. Albert is worth considering. While the average house price in Edmonton is around 279K in 2023, you could find a similar property in St. Albert for significantly less, with the average price at 200K. As the city grows, more housing options divert from the standard single-bedroom home St. Albert has been known for into more apartments, townhouses, and duplexes.
2. A bustling downtown
Whether you’re looking for a night out or a day filled with shopping and great eats, the Perron District delivers a great downtown experience. Although known to be quite chilly in the wintertime, St. Albert warms the streets of downtown with its annual Snowflake Festival, featuring family-friendly activities like a petting zoo, warm cocoa stations, and St. Nick himself. Throughout the year, you can expect to discover culture, entertainment, business, and pleasure all in one spot.
3. Quality health care services
You don’t need the big city to have peace of mind for your health. Unlike most cities proximal to Edmonton, St. Albert has its own hospital. The Sturgeon Community Hospital is located in the northern portion of the town and offers services ranging from specialized care to family medicine and emergency.
4. The renowned farmers’ market
You’ve probably been to a farmers market before, but have you been to the largest outdoor farmers’ market in Western Canada? From early June to the beginning of October, the St. Albert Farmers’ Market welcomes thousands of visitors to shop for products that are made, baked, or grown by hand from their nearly 300 vendors.
You can expect to find fresh fruits and vegetables, home décor and jewelry, farm-fresh meat, and tons of options for vegan and gluten-free folks. As the outdoor market closes each season, you can watch for the indoor Christmas Market to satisfy your local shopping fix!
5. Acres of parkland
With over 85 kilometers of paved multi-use trails, the Red Willow Trails offer abundant outdoor opportunities all year round. Enjoy a summer day bike ride through the green surroundings, or join a local running group to take in different areas of the trail.
For those sunny days that just scream picnic, enjoy the serene atmosphere at Lions Park. What initially began as a passion project for the Lions Club, a group of people seeking to better their community, Lions Park is now known as one of St. Albert’s oldest and most developed parks, with tons of activities for the whole family.
6. A slower pace
Sometimes you need a break from the traffic and busyness of a bigger city while remaining close enough to enjoy it when you want. St. Albert offers quieter living with everything you need and easy access to Edmonton and other Alberta cities. With so many cool things to do around town, we doubt you’ll want to leave!
