Kingswood

You could say that the homes in Kingswood are “fit for a king.” Residents love living in this wonderful community where there is easy access to countless amenities like parks and pathways. Located in the southeast quadrant of St. Albert along the Sturgeon River, the development of Kingswood began in the 1980s and continues to develop with beautiful views of the river valley. While St. Albert’s Kingswood neighbourhood certainly has its fair share of estate homes, there are also single-family homes and condos available.

History

Before Kingswood was developed into the residential zone we know today, it was home to farm fields. In the summers, the land was covered in crops, and when the winter snow came, cross-country skiers would lay claim to the western region along the riverbank. In later years, the St. Albert Nordic Ski Club would formalize their activities in the Kingswood Day Use Area by building their facilities in the early 1980s. The residential plans for Kingswood were finalized in 1986, and construction started soon after. In contrast to the previous generation of urban development, it was decided that Kingswood would contain no commercial space and would be almost exclusively residential.

Today, in the winter months, Kingswood Park turns from a grassy field into training grounds for cross-country skiers. The St. Albert Nordic Ski Club maintains trails for everyone to use.
