Take a walk in the park.
A short distance from Edmonton is the River Valley Parks, a system of parks and outdoor spaces over 20 times larger than New York’s Central Park. The activities offered here are almost endless, including walking trails, a nature centre, 11 lakes, and a golf course.
Skiing is popular in the winter months, while camping is a favorite activity in the summer. The sprawling network of parks makes for the perfect way to escape from the city for a few hours or longer, regardless of the time of year.
Visit the Ukraine in Edmonton
Ukrainians have been settling in the area since the late q9th century, and a great place to explore this fascinating culture is at the open air Cultural Heritage Village.
The staff is dressed in traditional costume and visitors can enjoy watching crafts such as baking and woodworking in the over 30 restored buildings comprising the site. There are some lovely gardens to wander around too, and one of the best things about the freshly baked bread is that you get to sample it afterward.
