THE NEST

THIS WEEK AT THE NEST

Edmonton HOT and we are doing a lot of deals, find out why?

Spruce Grove is quickly evolving as one of the top places in the country to raise a family. The growing city is riddled with parks, walking trails, golf courses, and recreation centers. As the summer begins to heat up, there is no better opportunity to get outside and enjoy what Spruce Grove has to offer. Summer always seems to fly by, so we went out and found all of the ways you can get out and cool down without leaving Spruce Grove.
