Oh, Spruce Grove, how you have grown!!
I have lived here for my whole life and the changes and growth in this community are immeasurable!
When I was 7 years old, our house in Westview Crescent (Woodhaven) backed onto an empty field (facing north). Our back alley was the very last road in Spruce Grove!! We backed onto a farmer’s field…but now you will find the Link’s Golf Course, 4 new schools, fitness facilities, hair salons, boozie stores, convenience stores, a church, beautiful subdivisions, playgrounds, a hockey rink, a spray park, and kilometers of amazing biking trails…all where the fields used to be!
We may not be surrounded by the mountains, or have a view of the ocean, but Spruce Grove has grown beautifully and it is definitely our home
Our children bike through the same forest that I did when I was their age...and they have licked and stuck their tongues to the same freezing cold railings in the same school yard that I did...and this makes my heart happy lol!!
We are very blessed to live here
We searched for a BRAND NEW SPRUCE GROVE FAMILY and we found one!!! They just moved here only 14 days ago...all the way from New Westminster BC!
As a welcome, we dropped off pizza for supper, passed them a box of Wilhauk Beef Jerky goodies, gave them gift cards to Jack’s Drive In, Docherty’s Fish & Chips, and Porta Romana Restaurant. We wanted to give them a taste of the old and new food establishments…and we absolutely love all three of these places!!
Welcome to Spruce Grove!! We love our city and we hope you do too
