With you in mind

Aster Gardens, a Sherwood Park community hub, is where active seniors thrive. We are an innovative seniors’ living community, built to promote active lifestyles and meet the specific tastes and needs of its residents. The building and all of its amenities were designed from the point of view of a resident, ensuring it will provide them with what they want, when they want it.

Entertaining guests, engaging with the community, or booking tee times and restaurant reservations with our concierge are easy at Aster Gardens: Designed with you in mind.

Welcome to Aster Gardens
