Sweet Grass


Sweet Grass was named after a Cree chief who campaigned for protection of the Plains Bison in the late 19th century. The land where Sweet Grass now stands was annexed to Edmonton in 1964, but major development only began in the 1970s. Development was largely complete by the mid-1980s, and consisted of a mix of single-detached homes, row houses and low-rise apartments.

Around two thirds of units are owner-occupied and one third is renter-occupied which is about average for the city. Sweet Grass is home to large households – almost a third of dwellings in Sweet Grass have 4 or more people living in them. The neighborhood is bounded on the west by 119 Street, on the east by 111 Street, on the north by 34 Avenue, and on the south by Saddleback Road and a utility corridor located just north of 29 Avenue.

The LRT access at nearby Century Park station in Ermineskin provides easy access to downtown core and University of Alberta campus area.
