Sherwood and Jasper Park were once parts of the Town of Jasper Place and were annexed to the City of Edmonton in 1964.
Sherwood was developed during the 1950s and features mostly single family homes. Sherwood residents enjoy access to downtown, shopping facilities in the west end and the many recreational areas of the river valley park system.
Jasper Park was developed in the 1950s and 60s. Its pattern of large lots on a grid system is typical of the neighbourhood design of the period. Jasper Park is now a mature suburban area with well-developed schools and parks. Residents enjoy easy access to Meadowlark Park Shopping Centre and West Edmonton Mall.
Driving through Sherwood and Jasper Park you will find the majority of homes are bungalows, on fairly large lots, with plenty of mature trees. Many of the homes feature detached garages which are accessed via rear lanes.
There are three schools in the Jasper Park area: James Gibbons Elementary School, Stratford Academic High School and Ecole Notre-Dame (francophone).
Sherwood and Jasper Park are bordered by 87 Ave and 95 Ave, and 156 St and 149 St. They are surrounded by the neigbourhoods Meadowlark Park, Glenwood, West Jasper Place, Parkview, and Lynwood and are also near Laurier Heights, Crestwood, Elmwood, and West Meadowlark Park.
