Parkland county (Spruce Grove/Stony Plain) is a very nice place to go if you're looking outskirts of Edmonton without being too far from the city life. Kind of like what I'd equate Vancouver is to White Rock or Toronto to Barrie.
When I was looking I think rent was fairly cheap and places were pretty nice too. House prices aren't that bad either (~$300K for 3 bed 3 bath detached single family home? That's a steal compared to the prices in the lower mainland as far as I'm concerned, AND you're only like a 45 min drive from Edmonton).
