Sherwood Park History
Sherwood Park was established in the early 1950s as a community to house oil workers of the Refinery Row industrial area.

Later, Sherwood Park was established on a section of farmland by 1954. On January 1, 1996, Strathcona County was designated as a specialized municipality by the Province of Alberta, allowing it to receive both grants and provincial benefits.
