The beautiful community of Barrhead, located 120 km north of Edmonton, is part of the historic Klondike Trail and is the centre of one of Alberta's richest agricultural and forestry areas. With a population of 4,500 in Barrhead and 7,900 in the County of Barrhead, living in a small town that's close to a big city offers the best of all worlds. Not only is Barrhead vibrant and progressive, Barrhead also offers a safe, caring, and welcoming environment with lots of recreational activities, clubs, and social events to keep residents busy. Barrhead is a great place to raise a family as it offers modern healthcare, schools and recreation venues as well as business opportunities via forestry, oil & gas and a booming agricultural industry.
