1) Edmonton is a walker’s dream city.
Edmonton is planning an Urban Balcony - Armature project
to have a walkway in the shape of a large U to extend over the river valley
to allow people to walk out and see the valley from a high suspended point
as they did at the Hoover Dam
Edmonton’s river valley is home to the longest stretch of connected urban parkland
anywhere in North America. There are over ninety-seven kilometres (61 miles)
of biking, hiking, skiing, walking and snow-shoeing trails.
Edmonton has Canada's highest area of parkland per resident
Edmonton's "Ribbon of Green" is reinforced by neighbourhood parks
throughout the city yielding 27,400 acres of parkland.
