  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Edmonton is Alberta's capital and its second largest city behind Calgary. The total population of the greater Edmonton area is just over one million people. The city was incorporated in 1904.

    Edmonton covers an area of 684 sq km (264 sq mi) and is located near the geographical center of the province, at an elevation of 668 metres (2,192 ft). The terrain in and around Edmonton is generally flat to gently rolling, with ravines and deep river valleys such as the North Saskatchewan River valley. The Canadian Rockies are only a few hours' drive away.

    Edmonton's river valley constitutes the longest stretch of connected urban parkland in North America, and Edmonton has the highest per capita area of parkland of any Canadian city.

    There are several key hotspots for nightlife in Edmonton. The most popular is the Whyte Avenue (82nd Avenue) strip, concentrated between 99 Street and 109 Street. The Downtown area features numerous good places to go out. The West Edmonton Mall (once the largest mall in the world), includes an indoor amusement park and water park, skating rink, pirate ship and free sea lion shows.

    Edmonton plays host to several large festivals each year, hence its local nickname as "The Festival City." The most popular of these festivals are the Edmonton Folk Festival and Edmonton Fringe Festival. The Folk Festival is one of the largest in North America and is a multi-day event that takes place at the ski hill beside the Muttart Conservatory. The Fringe Festival is located along Whyte ave and surrounding neighborhoods, and offers street performers, farmers markets, and live theatrical performances.

    The city is also home to the Edmonton Oilers, a famed NHL team that was the home of the Canadian and hockey icon Wayne Gretzky, who helped win multiple Stanley cups and build a legacy that lasted for decades.

    The city is served by several major airlines, the VIA rail system, and Greyhound Canada.
