In the City (Edmonton)

Edmonton, capital of the province of Alberta, sits on the North Saskatchewan River.  Its past is recreated at Fort Edmonton Park, a living history museum with an 1846 fort and streets from 1885, 1905, and 1920.  The city’s contemporary landmarks include the futuristic-looking Art Gallery of Alberta, known for its First Nations art, and the river valley park system.

Edmonton is home to the continent’s first, and biggest, Fringe theatre festival, and many other festivals; a shopping mall that includes an indoor waterpark, a pirate’s ship, and an ice skating rink; a wintertime ‘ice castle’ and ice slides; adventurous restaurants; and a people used to experimenting, inventing, and being self-sufficient.
