St. Albert’s late-century building boom was one of the reasons for the rapid development of Lacombe Park, but despite the need for quick expansion, the neighbourhood was very thoughtfully planned. A true community for everyone, residents have easy access to everything they need for daily life, from a variety of home styles to schools, access to nature, and commercial services.
Building started in 1970 with the first schools arriving in 1976 and 1978. Lake Lacombe Park was completed in 1975 and quickly became a popular destination for the entire city. Construction slowed but continued in the 1980s, and then nearly came to a standstill in the late 1990s and early 2000s. However, there are recent plans for further development along Lacombe Park’s western edge, ensuring once again that there is room for anyone that wants to live in Lacombe Park.
A beautiful, welcoming community full of amenities, services, well-planned out lots and roads, and plenty of nature, it’s no wonder that Lacombe Park is the most populous neighbourhood in St. Albert.
