Edmonton is recognized as Canada’s Festival City and for many good reasons. Every year, thousands of shows and events take place with millions of tourists flocking here to have fun. This is also a business center with the main brands that are installed here. One of the city’s local destinations is Northlands Park Edmonton.
If you’re heading into the city, this should be one of your must-see areas to get a real feel for this fascinating destination. Here are some of the best things to do and see in Northlands Park:
- Sports and music action at Rexall Place
This is a great location if you want to see some sports action. Hockey, which is a huge fan favorite in the country, is played here on both weekdays and weekends. It’s a great way to spend an evening with the family. There are also big musical acts like Mike Posner, Demi Lovato, Blink 182, The Who, Black Sabbath and Megadeth, which are just a few of the big names that have graced Rexall Place.
- Segway ride through the Edmonton Valley
The beautiful North Saskatchewan River runs through the area, and if you love nature, there’s no better way to sightsee than on a Segway. This is an ideal activity for families or groups, as you’ll have fun navigating the steep bike paths on two wheels. This is part of the world famous TransCanada Trail, the longest trail in the world. From the Chinese Gardens to the pedestrian bridge to Henrietta Muir-Edwards Park, the fresh scent of flowers invigorates both mind and body.
