Sherwood Park, Alberta
Sherwood Park is a suburb of Edmonton, Alberta. Located east of Edmonton in the Specialized Municipality of Strathcona County. Population (2001) 42,003. Based upon its population, Sherwood Park is technically one of Alberta's largest cities, however the community, which is autonomous from Edmonton, has chosen instead to remain a hamlet, making it the largest in Canada and possibly the world. Currently there are over $9.0 billion worth of major projects completed, annouced or under construction. Sherwood Park boasts incredibly low crime rates, including a near zero violent crime rate. The hamlet is home to several very large subdivisions, including several which are mini-acreage plots. Large parts of Sherwood Park's outskirts are currently under development.
A point on Range Road 231 between Township Road 522 and Wye Road is the highest recorded point between Edmonton and Winnipeg.
