The Hamlet of Antler Lake is a picturesque community situated on the shores of Antler Lake, just 15 minutes east of Sherwood Park, Alberta. One of eight rural hamlets in Strathcona County, Antler Lake is home to 353 residents. Most reside on the eastern and southern shores of the lake, with a portion of the community built on Hazelnut Island.
Mr. Gregory, a gentleman of the area, developed the community in the early 1950s. Later in 1975 area residents formed the Antler Lake Community League. For his work, Mr. Gregory had a park named after him -- Gregory Park -- which is located across from the Antler Lake Community Hall and has been designated as a natural area within the community. In the early 1990s, the Uncas Community League, neighbours to Antler Lake, disbanded their league and joined the Antler Lake Community League.

Local restaurants are great places to stop in for a meal or a cup of coffee or tea. There’s even a golf course.
