Just 35 minutes east of Edmonton lies a natural wonderland open all year long! Spread a blanket and gaze at a starry sky free from city lights or follow the footprints of a bison and learn how this magnificent animal was brought back from near extinction. In addition to being an important refuge for bison, elk and more than 250 bird species, Elk Island National Park is also an oasis of calm for day picnickers and overnight campers alike. Our team is just finishing the re-design of the Visitor Centre for Parks Canada. Stay tuned!
