Spruce Grove is one of a number of unique suburban communities in our diocese. The parish of St. Augustine’s Parkland caters to the needs of community members from Stony Plain, Parkland County and Wabamun, reaching as far as Edmonton, St. Albert and Lac St. Anne. It is very easy to spend an entire day in the area. History is kept alive through events and displays at the Spruce Grove Grain Elevator Museum, which is also home to our farmers’ market. Spruce Grove is home to a plethora of community parks such as spray parks like the ever-popular Ken Morrison/REMAX Excellence Spray Park. If you have kids and all you want to do is tour parks, Spruce Grove is the ticket you need!!!
Head 9 kms west of Spruce Grove and you will enter the community of Stony Plain. In the summer, Stony Plain hosts two major festivals — the Blueberry Bluegrass and Country Music Festival, which is held in early August and is the largest bluegrass event in western Canada, and the Cowboy Poetry and Country Music Gathering held in late August.
Spruce Grove is a part of the larger Parkland County which is known for its lakes, campgrounds and regional parks. Chickakoo Lake Park, KoKoMoKo, Ascot Beach Park, Rich's Point Park, Muir Lake Park, Constable Chelsey Robinson Day Use Park, Wabamun Provincial Park and the Clifford E. Lee Nature Sanctuary are just a few of the parks and lakes in the area. Even if you're not into camping, these lakes are worth visiting. Pack a blanket, swim gear, picnic and spend the day relaxing in the sand.
