Summer in Edmonton has arrived, and what better way to take advantage of it by dusting off your flip flops, slathering on some sunscreen, and hitting the pavement for an adventure!

Over on the Northeast of Edmonton, the city offers many opportunities to enjoy your summer at any speed – indoor or outdoor.

Parks

With quick access to the Yellowhead Trail on the Northeast, you’re able to access many of the surrounding green spaces of the city. Take yourself on a short drive out to Elk Island Park and surround yourself with nature, walking trails and wildlife. While the Bison roam the land, enjoy a day and night (or two) of affordable camping. For those astronomy fans, Elk Island Park is a designated dark zone to capture the most gorgeous views of the Northern Lights, planets, and constellations!
