The friendly oasis of the Village of Edgerton is nestled in rolling hills in the east-central Alberta; south east of Edmonton, Alberta on Hwy 14 then south on secondary highway 894. The Border City of Lloydminster lies 85 km north, and the town of Wainwright, 36 km west. We boast many recreational opportunities and have all the necessities within the borders of our town. Our K-12 Public School offers children a high quality education with small class sizes and low student/teacher ratios. CFB Wainwrgiht, supported by the Western Area Training Centre and the Canadian Maneuver Training Centre, is a nice 25 minute drive west for those travelling daily, the sun will always be at your back! Surrounded by rich agricultural land and steadily increasing oil and gas production, Edgerton is a great place to raise a family, a community with good old fashioned hospitality and all the conveniences of small town living.
