With James Mowat Elementary School nearby, WestPark is a great choice for families with young children who will be starting school soon. Siblings, friends and neighbours can all walk or ride their bikes to school (and maybe even stop at a playground or two along the way).
Distance from the big city creates a safe and comfortable atmosphere for WestPark residents, with Fort Saskatchewan being a smaller dwelling of roughly 25,000 people in comparison to Edmonton’s approximate population of 1 million.

This kind of harmony is a major selling point for families wanting to move closer to valued amenities without abandoning close proximity to nature, peace and quiet.
A warm, inviting atmosphere in Fort Saskatchewan makes for a slew of community events organized by the City of Fort Saskatchewan, as well as by local organizations and community groups. Some annual events that bring residents together include Movie Under the Stars and the Enchanted Forest.
Fort Saskatchewan has a rich history reaching back 140 years, which is showcased and highlighted at the Fort Heritage Precinct History Centre. The Fort Heritage Precinct is just a short drive from WestPark, and offers families an in-depth look at Fort Saskwatchewan’s humble beginnings that helped shape the area into the flourishing city it is today.
When you live in WestPark, you might hear a lot about sheep. That’s because Fort Saskatchewan is home to a famous flock of sheep who can be found grazing in the Peter T. Ream Historic Park at the Fort Heritage Precinct throughout the summer. From turf control to the city’s most adorable tourist attraction, this flock of Finnsheep helps trim the grass in parks around Fort Saskatchewan. The city has been using this sustainable park maintenance method since 1992, which puts it far ahead of the trend. Families find joy in watching the flock roam through the parks with their shepherd and a few border collies guiding them along the way.
Every year, on September 4th, the city puts on the Sheep Leaving Parade, when the flock makes their trek from Legacy Park through downtown back to the Fort Heritage Precinct. And leading up to the final farewell, the community celebrates Sheep Week, which is a fun initiative for the whole family to enjoy.
Music lovers appreciate Fort Saskatchewan’s vibrant art scene, with the intimate Shell Theatre hosting concerts of all genres. Live theatre performances, book readings and dance showcases are a few of many other events that are held in this local hidden gem.
Located just off Highway 21 and Westpark Boulevard, the community of WestPark offers residents convenient access to Edmonton, which is approximately 35 minutes southwest of Fort Saskatchewan.Directions
