Ardrossan is a hamlet in Alberta, Canada within Strathcona County.[2] It is located on Highway 824, approximately 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) east of Sherwood Park.

Ardrossan has been identified as a growth hamlet and a concept plan has been approved that will see another 136 acres (0.55 km2) of land developed for residential purposes.

The facilities in the hamlet include a public school complex for students from kindergarten to senior high, a separate school for students from kindergarten to junior high, and New Horizons School, a charter school for gifted students from kindergarten to junior high.[3] The junior/senior high school also houses the Ardrossan Community Theatre and the sports fields surrounding the schools were recently redeveloped with new baseball diamonds, soccer fields, football fields and a tennis court.[4]

Ardrossan is located directly to the east of Sherwood Park, and is just south of the Yellowhead Highway on Range Road 222. It can also be accessed by Township Road 530 coming out of Sherwood Park.
