Louise McKinney Riverfront Park is a prime spot for outdoor fun for plenty of reasons. For one, it's part of a system of parks that comprise North America's largest expanse of urban parkland. It also links up with the North Saskatchewan River and the Trans Canada Trail, the longest network of recreational trails in the world. Best of all, it's home to River Valley Adventure Co.
The outfitter provides a number of opportunities for exploration—and, through its Urban Green Cafe, the fuel for those adventures. Check out its services:
Guided Segway tours: Certified Segway trainers get participants up to speed operating the vehicles before groups embark on tours through the Edmonton River Valley. Tour-goers might see the scenic greenery along the river in the summer or snow-dusting vistas during the winter.
Bike rentals: If you don't have a car to lug around your bikes, the best way to traverse Edmonton's trails is by renting from River Valley Adventure Co. Mountain bikes are available by the hour or for full days.
Snowshoeing: Visitors can create their own fun by devising a trip through the park on borrowed snowshoes, or they can opt for a 60-minute guided tour.
Sports equipment: For those who have a more leisurely day in mind, fishing rods, badminton sets, bocce kits, soccer balls, and other gear is available to rent.
