‘A Hidden Gem’: Spring Lake Ranch Featured in the Edmonton Journal

We’re excited to share the Edmonton Journal’s recent feature article on Spring Lake Ranch!

In “‘A hidden gem’: Spring Lake Ranch offers room to grow”, writer Laura Severs did a great job conveying what makes SLR such a special community:

“The calendar may say something different but spring, as in Spring Lake Ranch, a residential community outside of Edmonton, has just sprung forward.

The 60-acre lakeside community, located 10 minutes west of Stony Plain in Parkland County, recently released its last 15 lots as Phase 4 of the residential development is now on the market.

“What started as a vision or a dream is now a beautiful, thriving community with people living in their forever homes,” said Sarah Corker, director of Spring Lake Ranch. “We had talked about what will be — in 2008 when the shovels first hit the ground. It’s better than imagined.””

It shares details about Phase 4, Wilcor Homes, our upcoming Open House (Saturday, Oct.20th) and more.

Let’s Go Local: Top Spots For Wellness Near SLR

Hello! We’re back with our second post in the Let’s Go Local series, where we feature fantastic local businesses — most located within minutes of Spring Lake Ranch. Our first post showcased 5 Home Decor shops, and we were thrilled with your response! 

In honor of February being the month of LOVE as well as Heart month (bringing awareness to cardiovascular health), this Let’s Go Local post is all about Wellness and Self Love. 

Sometimes the days and weeks go by so fast we don’t stop to check in on our own wellbeing. Having a regular practice of self care — whether it’s exercise, massage, nutrition based, or something else — can help you feel more present and joyful, even during challenging days.

These five businesses in the Stony Plain and Spruce Grove areas are invaluable to our residents, giving them opportunities to take care of themselves while supporting the local community. We hope it helps you discover a new favourite spot for some “me” time!

That Yoga Place

Located in Spruce Grove, That Yoga Place is a wonderful yoga studio offering daily drop-in hot and warm classes, from flow to yin to strength classes and even gentle candlelit sessions. Special pre-registered classes for youth and children are also available, as well as pre and post-natal sessions and a variety of workshops. (Acro for Beginners, Spring Detox Hot Flow, Learn to Fly and more are all coming up!) It really is a gem.

Says Josie Aleatha Willson: “Great variety of classes, all teachers are awesome and have unique personalities that shine through in their teachings.”

Bonus: Phoenix Physical Therapy is located in the same facility.

Bloom Therapy

Massage, acupuncture and holistic nutrition are all offered at Bloom Therapy, a wellness centre with two locations in Spruce Grove (in the Tri Village and Perpetual Fitness). Bloom’s team of practitioners help clients feel a sense of balance and healing in mind AND body. If you’re in need of relaxation, recovering from an injury, or have another concern suitable for holistic treatment, we highly recommend reaching out to Bloom!

Says Teigan McDermid: “Kristy [Bloom Therapy owner] is by far the best massage therapist I have ever had! She is very friendly, receptive, and professional; the atmosphere she has created makes me feel comfortable and relaxed throughout my massage. I always look forward to my next appointment as she goes above and beyond my expectations.”

Bonus: Bloom does direct billing!

Anytime Fitness

As its name suggests, Anytime Fitness — a global gym with locations around the world, including Stony Plain — is open 24/7, making it easier to fit a workout into your busy schedule. It’s super clean, has state-of-the-art equipment (and fresh towel service) and offers classes and personal training for all fitness levels. 

Says Megan Malloy: “Excellent variety of equipment. Lots of classes to choose from and staff is friendly and helpful!”

Bonus: Every Anytime Fitness member gets a free, personalized Get Started Plan when they join. 

Glow Salon Spa Nail

You didn’t think we’d leave out good old-fashioned pampering, did you? At Glow Salon Spa Nail in Spruce Grove, you can leave your worries at the door and settle in for services like a hair cut and colour, facial, massage, manicure, and more. The salon and spa’s hairstylists and spa therapists are highly trained and offer, professional, personalized service throughout your appointment. 

Says Ashley Hollett:  “I highly recommend Glow because of the talented staff, the wonderful atmosphere and the overall experience of being treated like a queen.”

Bonus: The Glow team is so friendly and welcoming!

Simply Health

Simply Health is your one-stop Spruce Grove shop for supplements: they offer everything from vitamins and minerals to herbs and protein powders. The staff prides itself on their customer service, product knowledge and experience — all part of what makes this an award-winning business. They have an excellent selection and take the time to help determine what you truly need.

Says Katie Orr: “Their focus is on customer service and education instead of just selling. I’ve recommended this store to people who aren’t sure where to start as I know they’ll be in good hands.”

Bonus: Membership is free, and members earn one point for every dollar spent on regular priced supplements. Once you get 100 points you can trade them in for $10 off your purchase!

Those are our top five picks for Wellness businesses close to SLR. If you any to add, let us know in the comments on our facebook post. And stay tuned for more Let’s Go Local posts coming this spring and summer!

Let’s Go Local: 5 Fantastic Home Decor Shops

We are excited to introduce our new blog series: Let’s Go Local!

There are so many wonderful local businesses in the Spring Lake, Spruce Grove and Stony Plain area, and as a community that supports them, we want to start highlighting them for YOU, our readers. From shops and restaurants to wellness services, entertainment, and family activities, we are will be sharing our top picks in the coming months. Supporting local businesses is so important to helping a community thrive. We hope that through spreading the word on some of our favourite spots, we’ll help you discover what makes Parkland County (and beyond) such a special place to live.

First up: Home Decor. The SLR team is deep into the design process for our 2018 builds, and we LOVE talking all things decor. Whether you are renovating, thinking of sprucing up your home for the holidays, or on the hunt for gift ideas, these 5 local home decor shops are an excellent source of inspiration.

Whimsical Vintage Creations

Described as “an amazing gem in Stony Plain”, “unique and charming”, and “my favourite store ever” by customers, this beautiful shop features a variety of furniture and home decor pieces. Owner Kyla Tetley also offers sign making and other classes — a great group activity (and gift idea)! If you love browsing vintage-inspired items in a welcoming, elegant space, Whimsical Vintage Creations is a must-visit destination.

Bay 101 3919 49th Ave, Stony Plain

Reside Furnishings

Reside is a bit further afield — with locations in west and south Edmonton — but it’s such a phenomenal furniture store, we had to share it here! This family-run business has been around since 1978 (formerly known as Leather Elite) and features a gorgeous selection of modern furnishings. Many of its pieces are made with reclaimed and sustainable materials like wrought iron or solid wood, and you’ll find everything from bedroom sets to dining tables to leather sectionals. Reside prides itself on its relationships with customers, so you can expect excellent service that has that personal touch.

West Edmonton location: 10434 Mayfield Rd NW

Grove Decorating Centre ~ Benjamin Moore

Known for producing the highest-quality paints and finishes in the industry, Benjamin Moore is a favourite among interior designers, including us at SLR! (Our newest home for sale, The Lakewood, features Paper White on the walls.) Grove Decorating Centre in Spruce Grove is the company’s local retailer, and the place to go when choosing paint colours. Honing in on the right palette for your home build or reno can be intimidating for anyone, so we recommend taking samples home and trying them out (be sure to notice the variation at different times of day!) before committing. The store’s helpful staff is on hand to answer any questions and help guide you in the right direction. 

 The Barn Owl

Part country decor, part woodworking/craft classes, The Barn Owl is one of Stony Plain’s most unique businesses. Customers rave about the decorative treasures, friendly staff, and peaceful environment. You can’t help but feel happy approaching the bright red exterior, and once inside, you’re immersed in a cozy world filled with charming pieces designed to being character to your home. A perfect stop on a weekend afternoon, or for a craft class with friends. (Check out their Everyday Wreath Classes offered throughout December!)

4912 52nd Ave., Stony Plain

Luxury Blinds

With more than 400 fabrics and styles to choose from, Luxury Blinds offers residents of the Spruce Grove area (and beyond) an amazing selection of blinds and more than 20 years of experience. 

At Spring Lake Ranch, one of of our trademarks is big beautiful windows that show off lake views! So we understand the importance of “the right” shade or blind to maximize all that natural light. Luxury Blinds does free in-home consultations, so you can have a professional help determine the best choice for your windows, style, and budget. The world of blinds has evolved SO much over the last decade — it’s really helpful to have experts break down all the options and share their expertise!

29 Linden St. South, Spruce Grove

And that’s our Top Five Home Decor picks! Stay tuned for more “Le’s Go Local” posts in the upcoming months.
