5 Relaxing Spring Spots in Edmonton
With finals being over and spring in the air, you might be looking for some nice spots to get outside, enjoy nature, and relax for a little while. So, for today’s blog, I have gathered up a list of 5 places for you to go to relax and enjoy nature this spring.
- Larch Sanctuary
Hidden in the middle of Edmonton lies Larch Sanctuary, a 59 acre wildlife reserve just south of 23rd Despite being in the middle of a major city, this sanctuary has remarkable biodiversity. If you’re wanting to get away from the city while still being in the city I definitely recommend checking this place out.
- River Valley
I know you’ve probably heard to go to the River Valley tons of times but it really is an incredible place. You could probably spend a week exploring it and still not have seen everything. Go golfing or have a picnic at one of the 20 parks or go for a hike on the 90 miles of trails.
- French Quarter
Tucked away in the heart of Bonnie Doon, you’ll find the French Quarter of Edmonton. If you didn’t know this existed that’s okay, neither did I! At the main intersection of 91 St and 88 Ave you’ll find yourself surrounded by all different signs of spring. Take a stroll down the street and just enjoy all the beautiful decorations and new life.
I know many of you have explored inside the Muttart, but have you ever ventured past the footbridge and gazebo to see the rest of the grounds? If you head there in mid-May a hill of tulips will await you. Perfect to help you relax.
- George F Hustler Memorial Plaza
This is another hidden gem, this time located within walking distance of the Muttart Conservatory. It wasn’t until a friend showed me this place that I realized it existed, I had passed by it so many times before. This is the perfect spring sanctuary with a luscious green carpet of grass and beautiful pink blossoms in full bloom.
There you have it! Some perfect spots to relax in and enjoy nature as the weather begins to get warmer.
