Try the Mactaggart Sanctuary 2.3-km loop trail near Edmonton, Alberta. It requires an average of 32 minutes to finish and is typically regarded as a moderately difficult course. Since hiking is highly popular in this region, you can run into other hikers while doing your exploration. The months of May through October are ideal for hiking this trek. Dogs are permitted, but they must be leashed.
Despite being very short and having minimal elevation gain, this trail can be rather challenging due to its numerous little hills, rough terrain, and wet patches. There are ladders and ropes available to help people traverse any washed-out bridges Anytime of the year, the trail is worthwhile to visit and it includes several markers.
Mactaggart Sanctuary unmarked parking lot is located off 23rd Avenue’s south side, west of 119th Street. When discussing the city’s green spaces, the river valley is frequently praised, but the hiking paths in Mactaggart Sanctuary are just as deserving of appreciation.
More about this gem
This nature park, which can be found at the confluence of the Whitemud and Blackmud Creeks, offers some graded challenges through narrow trails, with tree roots acting as natural ladders to aid you climb some of the harder inclines.
Although there are loops inside loops, you won’t get lost if you stick close to the creek on the left of the trail system. There are a lot of pink, purple, and yellow wildflowers, as well as wild berries, white, and orange mushrooms, and swarms of dragonflies along the trail.
There are many birds singing, but you have to keep an eye out through the dense undergrowth to see where the tweets are coming from. Starting off above the creek, you will pass a bridge close to the parking area. The road then ascends and shortly parallels a cliff’s edge where reddish water flows.
The trail descends some steep slopes that are difficult on the ankles before arriving to a beaver-built wood dam that turns the creek into a reservoir teeming with ducks.
A morning filled with greenery and the sound of running water can be incredibly soul-stirring. Definitely worth a look.
Try the Twin Brooks District & Nature Park 5.6-km out-and-back trail accessible in Edmonton, Alberta. It usually takes 1 hour and 18 minutes to accomplish this course, which is generally considered as being simple. Even though this is a popular trail for hiking, cross-country skiing, and bird watching, you can still find some peace and quiet during the slower periods of the day. Dogs are permitted, but they must be leashed.
This is a pleasant stroll around a residential neighbourhood where you may take in the scenery, homes, and the whitemud creek. Some sections of the trail might be challenging for small children and pets.
The Pointe, the park’s northwest section, has preserved natural elements typical of pre-urban development.
The District Park was designed as a natural space for casual and passive use with little infrastructure. Its layout encourages a return to nature by offering trails for exploring the many hills, trees, plants, and flowers. It also makes it simple to access the top-of-the-bank trail network that abuts the Twin Brooks neighbourhood along the Blackmud and Whitemud Creek ravines.
Four observation benches with access to the Pointe offer the chance for a more in-depth understanding of nature, reflection, and enjoyment of Whitemud Creek. It inspires families to use imagination to enjoy the park. Activities that are suited include biking, kite flying, sledding, dog walking, hide & seek, running, cross-country skiing, and many forms of nature enjoyment.
Terwillegar Park is located on the south bank of the North Saskatchewan River at the end of Rabbit Hill Road. This park is ideal for anyone wishing to spend some time outside and take in the scenery because it has numerous multi-use trails and a sizable off-leash area. Additionally, the park contains a 262-meter-long footbridge that connects it to Jan Reimer Park (formerly Oleskiw River Valley Park), which is located on the north bank of the river.
Planning to visit the footbridge? Here are a couple things to keep in mind.
About Terwillegar Park Footbridge
The walking surface is made up of 86 precast deck panels with each panel being approximately 2.64 metres long and 5.3 metres wide. This unique design means the bridge deck is only 46.5 cm thick. Additionally, the bridge is 262 metres long, which is the slightly over the length of two football fields
There is a small drop between the two piers and the abutments that pedestrians and bicycles using the bridge will experience.
The panels are supported by two piers in the river and by 162 separate steel cables that are connected to concrete abutments on either river side. Each panel is installed by a crane hoisting it onto the steel wires and sliding it into place with the aid of a high line.
There are only about 60 bridges in the world that use the stressed ribbon design, making it rather uncommon. Only two Canadian cities—Edmonton being one of them—have built this special kind of bridge. The other city is Calgary’s Fish Creek Park.
The Terwillegar Park Footbridge ranks second in length among footbridges with stressed ribbons worldwide. The 300-meter-longest is in Escondido, California.

This is a gated dog park with an area for both large and small dogs to play and interact in safety. Take advantage of our 3-acre gated park’s benefits, which include ample of parking for pet guardians. Two play areas in the park are divided by well-maintained page-wire fencing to contribute to the comfort of our canine guardians and companions.
For dogs who enjoy playing and interacting with dogs of all shapes and sizes, big and little, there is the all sizes dog space. There is also a small dogs space for small dogs who aren’t comfortable playing with the larger dogs.
Off-leash dog parks offer a communal setting where people can gather, mingle, and watch their dogs have fun. Dog parks give pups a place to play and interact with other dogs while allowing owners and their dogs to spend time together. Dogs are territorial creatures and may become aggressive when wearing leashes. Therefore, allowing dogs to roam freely is good for them.
Additional benefits of a dog park to the community include promoting responsible dog-ownership as well as accommodating dogs and their owners in a public open space.
