Jensen Lakes

Jensen Lake is located west of St. Albert Trail and north of Villeneuve Road. This area is known for beautiful scenery, luxurious living, and is the only beach neighbourhood in St. Albert. Much of Jensen Lake real estate is centred around year-round recreational activities. Beautiful beaches, walking trails, parks, ponds, and a private sand beach, with an amazing beach club, are what residents can look forward to when purchasing a home in Jensen Lakes.

Options for every price range and home-style exist in Jensen Lakes; estate homes, single-family, townhomes and duplexes are all available.

The lake will include docks at the beach club, private docks for each of the lake lots, and semi-private docks at private walkway access points.  A swimming area and dock will be located just off the main sandy beach area.  The lake may be stocked with fish for both summer and winter recreational fishing.
