Sweetgrass Community Overview

Sweet Grass is a residential neighbourhood in south west Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It is named for Cree Chief Sweet Grass, "who was one of the early west's first conservationists and instrumental in the protection of the Plains Bison."

The neighbourhood 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.

When construction of the new south LRT extension is complete, Sweet Grass will be served by the new LRT station at Century Park in the neighbourhood of Ermineskin to the south east.

There are two schools in the neighbourhood, Sweet Grass Elementary School operated by the Edmonton Public School System, and St. Sophia Catholic School operated by the city's Catholic School System.
