At the Edmonton River Valley, go for a leisurely stroll or cycle along some of the many trails, and stop for a picnic on the grass. Rent a canoe to explore the North Saskatchewan River on a warm day or sit beneath large shady trees to people-watch. In winter, go cross-country skiing or hike past trees laden with snow. Autumn and spring are great seasons to capture the flora and fauna on camera.
Edmonton River Valley comprises 18,400 acres (7,400 hectares) and consists of 22 major parks, connected by more than 93 miles (150 kilometers) of trails. It’s the largest stretch of urban parkland in North America and is shared by Edmonton and its surrounding communities.
People probably roamed this fertile valley as early as 10,000 B.C., just after the last ice age. With the arrival of settlers looking for agricultural sites some 150 years ago, the area around the North Saskatchewan River became more and more developed. Fortunately, much of the nature was preserved for future generations to enjoy.
Head down to the river to go rowing, canoeing or fishing. You can catch burbot, lake sturgeon and walleye, but check local fishing regulations beforehand. There are lots of bird-watching opportunities across the valley too, so read up on the local species.
During winter, try cross-country skiing or snowshoeing on some of the special tracks set up throughout the valley. There are also four skating rinks to circle around on too. If you are visiting in spring, summer or fall, you can go rollerskating on the paved trails instead. Join a Segway tour for a less strenuous way to explore the parklands.
To try something different, take a raft or a stand-up paddle board down the river to get a good look at the forested parklands from the water. Check the weather and river conditions before you head out.
If you are visiting the river valley from downtown Edmonton it takes about five minutes by car, 30 minutes on foot or 15 minutes by light rail from Churchill Station.
Repeat customs, good hotel, very good staff. Nice rooms, seedy neighbourhood for another decade, then it’ll be okay.
Great hotel. I was a little surprised that there was not coffee in the room. The parking lot was a nightmare with all the construction going on. Absolutely beautiful view.
Such a beautiful hidden gem. This is now my favourite place. Loved the atmosphere the rooms were modern yet vintage. Loved the no tv. Sadly they will not be open for the next two years. But when the renovations are done we will be there!!!!
Very pleasant experience. Clean room, comfortable bed, nice service. Good location, not very expensive parking.
Really great place for a couple to stay. It is upstairs, so not appropriate for people with mobility issues, but it was perfect for us.
Located in Northeast Edmonton, this holiday home is 1.8 mi (2.8 km) from Rundle Park and 2.1 mi (3.4 km) from Edmonton Expo Centre. Rundle Park Golf Course and Rexall Place are also within 3 miles (5 km).
Angela’s place was amazing in every way! Our basketball team was treated to a fantastic home with lots of space to hang out, play games, watch movies, and eat! The pictures don’t lie: the kitchen and bedrooms were exactly as advertised. I appreciated Angela’s prompt communication and the fact she ...
