A summer Sunday afternoon on the river in downtown Edmonton
Every Sunday afternoon from middle of May to end of September we have a trip through the river valley past the University and the downtown highrises. This is a wonderful afternoon outdoor activity for the whole family. There is so much to see, eight bridges to negotiate, meet the Dragonboats and wave to the Edmonton Queen while you drift by in your 2-person canoe.
Paddle 3 to 4 hours on the North Saskatchewan River from Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park to Capilano Park - At 1:00 pm we meet in Capilano Park at the foot of 50th Street on the south side of the river. Leave your car in the paved parking lot to the left of the the boat ramp access. Then you board our bus for the 30 minute drive to Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park and launch your 2-person canoe and you begin your journey down river at your leisure.
You should be back at Capilano Park between 5:00 and 6:00 pm.
