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.

Parks and trails

Spruce Grove has many parks and trails ready to be explored including Central Park,Heritage Grove Park, Jubilee Park and the Spruce Grove Skate Park.

Brookwood Rink
Checked daily Monday – Friday during the summer. This outdoor asphalt rink is great for rollerblading or playing street hockey, although you will need to bring your own nets.

Disc Golf
The growing sport of Disc Golf, also known as Frisbee® Golf, is now in Spruce Grove! The nine-hole course is located at Jubilee Park. Disc Golf is similar to traditional golf but uses a flying disc instead of a ball and club.

The Parkland Pickleheads are ready to go! Played on six outdoor courts located on South Avenue at the Henry Singer Park in Spruce Grove; Pickleball is the hottest sport in North America. Come see what all the laughing is about.

The City of Spruce Grove has nine tennis courts. The tennis courts are free for the community to use and are not scheduled.

TD Bank. If you are purchasing a home and it is approximately 24 months (2 years) down the road until possession TD can grant you peace of mind by holding a rate for you. The rate we save is not the best rate out there because the best rates are reserved for homes that will be moved into with 120 days, not 2 years down the road. As the possession date inches closer we amend that 2 yr rate hold to an 18 month rate which gets lower as we are holding it for less time. As we get to the 12 month possession period we can save the 12 month rate which is a better rate than the 18 month rate, and as we get 6 months from possession we can save the 6 month rate which is equivalent to the best rate out there at that time! And if rates drop from the 6 month mark up to 1 week until possession we can amend your rate. This rate hold is your peace of mind just in case during the 2 years it takes to build your home rates go up drastically, you are protected as a valued client and know what the worst case scenario is so you can budget your payments for the future, but if rates drop we can always save the better rate as the closing/possession date inches closer. This is the benefit of a rate hold! Read more here.

buying vs renting Buying vs. renting. It is the eternal question and dilemma that potential new buyers are faced with when thinking about entering the real estate game. You may be thinking, “Isn’t it cheaper to rent?” or “If I buy, is it a good investment for the future?” There may not be one single right answer and that is precisely the thinking behind our new development in Spruce Grove. The Nest was designed with new buyers, investors and those looking to downsize in mind. Imagine yourself in a beautiful space, with contemporary fixtures and the latest in innovative design. It is a space that you can call your own, fall in love with and decorate any way you want. Just let your imagination soar. All of this at a very affordable price, which will offer you a chance to put money aside and to be able to enjoy everything the Spruce Grove community has to offer.

We have had our eye on Spruce Grove for quite some time now. Not only is it situated in one of Canada’s fastest growing provinces, but it is also a great place to live. With miles of pristine park lands and its close proximity to Edmonton, otherwise known as Canada’s “Festival City”, who wouldn’t want to make it their home? As Alberta prepares itself to lead Canada through its next wave of construction, it has become apparent that many others share our views.
