Edmonton ranks among list of world's best trips for Summer 2015 according to National Geographic.

Called the River of Green, Edmonton's River Valley constitutes the longest stretch of connected urban parkland in N. America. The river valley is 22 times larger than New York City's Central Park. Athletes and those who attempt to be take advantage of the valley to run, jog, walk, hike, cycle, rollerblade through the paved and unpaved paths. You can even take a guided Segway tour through the river valley year round, the only way you can travel on a Segway publicly outdoors in Edmonton and the first on public land in Canada. It starts and ends at Louise McKinney Park 4 times a day and runs 3 seasons a year for groups as small as 2 and even single riders if you ask. They also rent bikes. A cafe below the condo near the river offers bottled drinks, gelato, bike and sports equipment rentals. In the river valley and downtown, festivals and other activities are abundant during the summer. Walk through the rose garden and have a picnic at a picnic table or on the other side of the river by means of the pedestrian bridge where you can have a BBQ. Tai Chi in the Chinese Garden or do yoga in the park below the condo. There is easy access right down to the river's edge using the freshly cut lawn and paved walkways and/or stairs.

You can watch the River Boat Queen launch in the river or watch the Dragon Boat racers practice throughout the summer in the river and even the race itself from start to finish. Other sightings are power boats, jet skis, canoes, and the silly Sourdough Raft Race. Often you can see fireworks from Telus Field, always from Capital Ex and practically all the others throughout Edmonton on Canada Day from the condo. You can see the forest from the trees when it comes to the view of downtown from the condo.

Walking distance just blocks blocks away and seen from the condo is a ski hill for skiing and tobogganing. Next to the Muttart Conservatory for botanical lovers. the ski hill is also home to the renowned Edmonton Folk Festival. All of this including concerts, the Dragon Boat Races and the Chinese Garden can be seen from the condo. Riverside and Victoria Golf Courses are 1.4 and 3.2kms away respectively.

Downtown buildings and Chinatown are a short walk away. Get your fresh groceries at an ethnic supermarket 2 blocks away. One of Edmonton's top restaurants, Hardware Grill, is only 3 blocks away. There is always something to see and do at Churchill Square 5 blocks away.

Bus stops next block over where buses head off in all directions includes one route that leads to West Edmonton Mall without transferring. A two block walk gets you to Canada Place where you can enter the 13 kilometre (8.1 mi) year-round climate-controlled underground tunnels and walkways between more than 40 buildings and parkades and three of the five Edmonton Light Rail Transit (LRT) stations in the downtown area. The LRT can whisk you to the University of Alberta, NE and south Edmonton.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: We are a long time Edmonton family managing a number of family owned rental properties in Edmonton and Banff. We enjoy our encounters with our renters' desire that they have a pleasurable stay.

Why Edmonton:
We love the central location and ease of access to much of what Edmonton has to offer. It was was built for our own use so it has many upgrades over above other condo units making it ideal for executives. It is a place unlike any other in the city.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Unlike other apartment style properties, natural light beams through opposite ends of the condo that is especially important in Alberta's winters. This unit is very close to the nicer (glass) of two elevators and has a semi-private entrance. The utility room which includes a personal use washer and dryer is uniquely attached internally to the condo unit. The balcony extends far out to the river valley edge providing a panoramic view of the river, Louise McKinney activities, the arterial roads and downtown. In fact you can see 5 bridges at once.
