Stunning Riverfront/Park View & Access Edmonton Fully Furnished Downtown Condo
Possibly the best location in the city!

In 2015, National Geographic has named Edmonton as one of the best summer trips for its international events and Edmonton's river valley is highlighted as Alberta city's best draws.
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. In the river valley and downtown, festivals and other activities are abundant during the summer. Below the condo, stand up paddle boards, bikes snowshoes and sports games such as croquet and bocce ball sets, as well as footballs and soccer balls can be rented. You can even get fishing equipment and a fishing licence to go fishing at the public docks down at the Riverfront Promenade. 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. Perhaps even in walking distance join the Edmonton Dragon Boat Racing Club or take tai chi and 3D origami classes at the Chinese Multicultural Centre.
There are many activities you can do in winter.
You can watch within the condo unit the Edmonton Riverboat across the river or watch the Dragon Boat racers practice throughout the summer in the river. Other sightings are power boats, jet skis, canoes, and the silly Sourdough Raft Race. Across the foot of the river promenade below is the sandy Cloverdale Accidental Beach. You can see 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.
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.
Older adults who engage with arts frequently have a 31% lower risk of dying. Thus downtown buildings including the Arts District (Francis Winspear for Music, Citadel Theatre, Art Gallery of Alberta, and Royal Alberta Museum where there is no parking), Churchill Square, the soon to be rebirthed Stanley Milner Public Library and Chinatown that are a short walk away are fantastic.

Bus stops next block over where buses head off in all directions includes one route that leads to West Edmonton Mall without transferring and another for IPS Heartland. A two block walk gets you to Canada Place where you can enter the 13 kilometre (8.1 mi) year-round climate-controlled Pedway (walkways on, above and below ground level) between more than 40 buildings and parkades and three of the five Edmonton Light Rail Transit (LRT) stations in the downtown area.
