Take advantage of the hot summer days and spend some time exploring one of North America’s largest urban parks, the North Saskatchewan River Valley. If you’re looking for entertainment, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by Canada’s Festival City. With festivals happening every week, you’ll be sure to find something for everyone in the family. You can also visit the infamous West Edmonton Mall where you can take a thrilling ride on the indoor roller coasters, slide into World Waterpark, or play a round of bowling in between stores.
