Sherwood Park is a large hamlet in Alberta, Canada within Strathcona County that is recognized as an urban service area. It is located adjacent to the City of Edmonton's eastern boundary, generally south of Highway 16 (Yellowhead Trail), west of Highway 21 and north of Highway 630 (Wye Road).

Strathcona County Library

Reviewed By dougbL3997DV - Tavares, United States

Looking for something to do in Strathcona County that does not involve too much sweating - try the library!! Lots of very good information and helpful staff plus you can 'goole' something on their computer and back it up with some written documentation. PLUS have a coffee too...

Winspear Centre

The Francis Winspear Centre for Music is located in Edmonton's Arts District and is home to the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.

Reviewed By musicandart - Toronto

I went to the Winspear Centre, three times for three different Concerts. In order to judge a concert hall properly, a person has to sit in different areas and listen to different types of music. For one show, I sat at the front,for another, in the middle and for another, at the back on the upper balcony. Every show sounded great, the stage was never far away and there were no obstructions to the view. During the break for each show, there was plenty of room to stretch out in the lobby and bathrooms were easy to find. The Winspear has very comfortable Seating and they were easy to locate. Ushers were friendly and helpful. I would recommend the Winspear to anyone that wants good sound, good Seating and roomy lobby space. A great experience at every [email protected]

Festival Place

Reviewed By happycamperSt_Albert - St. Albert

This venue holds about 500 people so all the seats are good. They hold a good variety of Performances from locally produced plays to international stars. Seating is comfortable but we prefer the floor seats to the balcony. There is also café Seating right in front of the stage where you sit at tables with bowls of nibblies. This is the only theatre I know of that encourages people to bring drinks into the show.

One weird activity you can try here is something called "Purple City". What you do is go to the big lights, stare at them for a minute then look around. Disclaimer I'm sure its not healthy for you. I've never looked around inside but the outside is fun to see. The building is beauteous and the Fountains fun in the summer. Try the Trolley here.

High Level Bridge Streetcar

Open May Long weekend to October each year, the streetcar's views of the city and the river are absolutely amazing. This is also the best way to get from the farmer's market to downtown.

Reviewed By skycare - Edmonton, AB

How often to you get to ride in a 105 year old streetcar, over one of the highest river crossings in North America. Edmonton's river valley is the city's crown jewel and the streetcars offer a fantastic view up and down stream. The volunteers of the Edmonton Radial Railway Society do a great job of operating and maintaining their fleet of streetcars, making visitors feel welcome and sharing interesting historical facts along the way. The Motorman and Conductor were both very knowledgeable and made us feel welcome. You can also ride at Fort Edmonton Park, where they operate the majority of their fleet.

Barr Estate Winery

Reviewed By Ivanhoe - Camrose, Canada

We were very disappointed. The place is very run down. All buildings in serious need of repair. No public washroom available. Saw a field with raspberry canes and field with rhubarb plants. We then sat in chairs in a room with a couple stainless vats while we had a ten minute presentation then tested the two wines. I like sour wines so found the wines good but two of our party didn't care for them. Lots of dogs around, and they are quiet but just be aware. It is absolutely nothing like the orchard wine tours in the Okanagan.

Mill Creek Ravine Park

Reviewed By Edward W - Toronto, Canada

We were in Edmonton for only half a day on a Sunday morning, and we tried to do the best that the city had to offer by combining breakfast at Muttart, a walk through Mill Creek Ravine and then coffee on Whyte Avenue. This was a highlight of that route, with good views over the city and the changing fall colours.

Strathcona Science Provincial Park

Reviewed By EdwardJAllen - Sarnia, Canada

Now here is a truly multifaceted park! It contains the Sunridge Ski Area to the north end of the park, and at the south end there is apparently a meeting/hookup area for gay men at the southern end of the park. I write this with some confidence as I wandered into it by accident one day, then asked around afterwards and found my suspicions confirmed.
The park itself has some nice features but is a little neglected and a number of the buildings are shuttered and apparently ready for the bulldozer. THe views towards downtown Edmonton are really nice though, and you can have a good wander down by the riverside too.
It doesn't look too well patrolled so I'd be careful if alone in the evenings, but otherwise you should be OK. The nicer park is directly over the river called Rundle Park; might be better off there...

Muttart Conservatory

The Muttart Conservatory is unique at first sight. This innovative botanical garden sets the pace for plant science in western Canada and defines Edmonton’s skyline with striking glass pyramids rising from the river valley.

Reviewed By Travellingtheworld1 - Calgary Alberta Canada

The Muttart Conservatory is a fun place for singles, couples , families and groups.
Plant displays are located in unique glass pyramids. There are different climate zones presented e.g. arid, temperate, etcetera, and on the day we visited there was a featured children oriented exhibit.
The interior of the Muttart is extremely easy to navigate with excellent signage for each area and for specific plants in each climate zone.
Take as long as you want in any area - there are well placed benches to rest and take a moment to relax. Bring a camera as there are ample photo opportunities.
We did not take one of the guided tours but they looked informative and fun.
There are food services and a gift shop both offering items for all tastes.
There is ample parking and admission prices are affordable.
I would recommend the Muttart to anyone wanting a different day out experience. The Muttart is suitable for all ages.
