Get those steps in: Things to do around campus

Natasha Chan - 09 April 2021

The sun's out and it's time to explore. Here are a few ways to get out and about, all within walking distance of residence.

Satisfy your sweet tooth

Think local by visiting some of Edmonton's best dessert shops! Here are some of my favourite places that are either walking distance from campus or a short transit ride away:

Enjoy a nature walk

Explore the river valley or visit the legislature building right across the river!

Do a coffee crawl

Take a stroll down Whyte Ave and visit some of my favourites:

This amazing exhibit will be launching soon at the Edmonton EXPO Centre! Find out more.

Search for Fantastic Planet

Go out and find the 12-foot tall inflatable statues in downtown Edmonton from now until April 11! This 6 piece art installation is called “Fantastic Planet,” named after the 1973 French/Czech film of the same name.

Visit the Old Strathcona Farmers' Market

Here you will find a variety of locally grown and produced goods—you don’t want to miss out! Find more information about weekly vendors.

Check out the End of the World

Take a Lime/Bird Scooter and ride to this scenic viewpoint located right at 7433 Saskatchewan Drive.
