In Edmonton, spring is a fantastic time of year to head outside and take in some beautiful sites or visit some great shopping districts. Azarko Dental Group and our Edmonton dental clinic have been a part of this vibrant community for over 35 years. Here are 10 things that our Edmonton dentists, staff, and patients like to do during the springtime:
- Go shopping on Whyte Avenue
Whyte Avenue is not only one of the best shopping neighbourhoods in Edmonton, but arguably in all of Canada. The historic buildings of Whyte Avenue also house the art and cultural heart of the city.
- Check out the Old Strathcona Farmers' Market
Every Saturday, from 8 AM to 3 PM, the Old Strathcona Farmers' Market is where you can find a plethora of grown, baked, and hand-made goods from almost 300 different vendors. The vendors rotate, so make sure you go more than once.
- Visit the John Janzen Nature Centre
The John Janzen Nature Centre in the Edmonton River Valley is a wonderful place to visit and learn about the local plant and animal life through interactive exhibits and engaging programs.
- Spend a day on the 4th Street Promenade
Another must-visit shopping district, the 4th Street Promenade is one of Edmonton's most exciting up-and-coming areas. The restaurants, shops, and hangouts offer endless dining, shopping, and entertainment opportunities.
- Walk, Bike, or Picnic in Hawrelak Park
Full of great cross-country skiing trails during the winter, Hawrelak Park transforms into an ideal place to walk or bike during the spring. Many ideal picnic spots also find their home here.
- Take a tour with River Valley Adventure Co.
The River Valley Adventure Co. offers Segway tours of the Edmonton River Valley. The scenic tours are led by a knowledgeable guide who will point out natural wonders along the way, filling you in on their history and importance.
- Visit the Edmonton Valley Zoo
After seeing some local wildlife on your Segway tour, why not visit the over 350 different animals at Edmonton Valley Zoo? The new Polar Extremes exhibit, with its arctic foxes and sea lions, is a real treat.
- Shop and dine on 124 Street
Specialty shopping, artisan shops, art galleries, eateries, coffee houses, and independent restaurants abound on the charming 124 Street. You'll keep coming back to the area again and again.
- Take a helicopter tour
Edmonton Regional Helicopters offers breathtaking tours of the Edmonton River Valley and the picturesque downtown core above it. This unique adventure is truly one you want to take at least once.
