"Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile." -Franklin P. Jones


Ah, February! January teased us with hints of Spring, but whether the Groundhog sees his shadow or not, it looks likes winter isn't quite over yet. We will make the best of it, however, here at the Park! February is full of pink and red hearts and chocolate, and is a perfect time to celebrate not only romantic love but the love we see every day here at Sherwood Park. If you pay attention you will see our staff lovingly care for our residents every day, you will see friendships blossoming among residents, and you will notice how much love is present in the everyday actions here. February is time to celebrate love in all forms, for as the Beatles sang, "All you need is love"!

Check out some of our highlights below.
