Parking is permitted on residential streets (priority 4) in Sherwood Park.

Residential street parking ban sign up on a post on a residential street

Residential streets are classified as Priority 4 roads and are cleared when the snow depth reaches 10 centimetres of compacted snow before January 1, or 7 centimetres after January 1. 

Watch for orange Residential Street Snow Removal signs posted in your neighbourhood.

  • Signs will include dates parking is not permitted.
  • It may take up to 10-12 days to remove the snow from all neighbourhoods in Sherwood Park.  

Please remove vehicles from the road

When the orange signs are posted in your neighbourhood, remove all vehicles from residential streets during the posted timeframe, or you will be towed and fined. During this time, parking is permitted on collector roads (190.9 KB)  marked with "snow route when declared" signs.


Residential snow depth measurement

After a snowfall, County crews measure 26 locations throughout Sherwood Park to get an average depth of compacted snow. This measurement is used to determine when residential snow removal is required. Measurements are updated every two weeks, depending on snow accumulation.

Current compacted snow depth: 5.5 cm
