HISTORY

History

“Edmonton received the status of Alberta’s capital city in 1905!”

T

he Edmonton area had been inhabited by the Cree and Blackfoot tribes for thousands of years when in 1795, the Hudson Bay Company brought its trademark green, red, yellow and navy stripes out west and established a trading post. Known as “Edmonton House,” the post was built near the present-day city of Fort Saskatchewan and was frequented by trappers, traders and adventure seekers. In 1871, land located next to the river valley — the site of the present-day Alberta Legislature grounds — was purchased by the government and Fort Edmonton, a hub for the fur trade, was constructed. The rush for gold in the Klondike in 1898 was the second big boom for Edmonton. Dreamers headed north made the area their last stop in civilization before rushing off to seek their fortunes. More than 2,000 prospectors set off via this route, dubbed the “Back Door” or “All Canadian Route”, thought to be less arduous then the perilous mountain trails on the

West Coast. The city’s role as an outfitting centre made this a period of tremendous growth — its population doubled in just over two years! Edmonton received the status of Alberta’s capital city in 1905 which paved the way for the prestigious University of Alberta. By 1928, the university had its own campus with six buildings and over 1,600 students, including Miss Leona McGregor who was the first student to be awarded a medical degree. The city had the first licensed airfield in Canada (Blatchford Field, now City Centre Airport), and in the 1930s was the aviation hub for transportation of medical supplies, food and mail to the northern communities, earning the city the title of “Gateway to the North.” Construction of the Alaska Highway in 1942 solidified the city’s role as a major transportation and supply centre, and also enriched the city’s cultural diversity as Ukrainians and other eastern European immigrants came to Edmonton looking for opportunity.

HISTORY In 1947 the discovery of oil in nearby Leduc transformed Edmonton into the Oil Capital of Canada virtually overnight. Ironically, after spending $12 million on more than 130 dry holes, Imperial Oil had almost abandoned hope of finding oil in the area and was ready to cap the Leduc #1 well. But on

February 13, tool pusher Vern “Dry Hole” Hunter, so nicknamed for the number of unsuccessful wells he had worked on, ordered the crew to drill down another five feet. The historic strike of “black gold” marked the birth of Western Canada’s oil industry, and ushered in an era of unprecedented

HISTORY prosperity and growth. Within a decade, Edmonton’s population more than doubled and, today the oil and gas industry remains the city’s economic cornerstone. By Edmonton’s centennial in 2004, the city was worlds away from its humble begin-

GREATER EDMONTON VISITOR GUIDE 2013


EXCURSIONS

Family Fun! Whether planning a day outside on the 155 km of trails in the river valley, or deciding to spend the afternoon at West Edmonton Mall, Edmonton has something to keep everyone in the family happy! Don’t forget to pick up the Edmonton Attractions Pass (pg 3), the essential sightseeing tool for visitors to take in the best of Edmonton’s attractions.

PHOTOS: EDMONTON TOURISM

EXPERIENCE 1: Start off with a visit to the TELUS World of Science (pg 49) that has six exhibit galleries and two theatres (including an IMAX™), and is home to Canada’s largest planetarium. Your next stop should be at the Edmonton Valley Zoo (pg 43) to visit the tigers, red pandas and zebras, and experience first-hand some of the world’s greatest creatures with interpretative animal presentations. Next, keep your brain engaged at the Royal Alberta Museum (pg 46), where you can meet some unusual insects in the Bug Room or explore Wild Alberta to learn about animals and fossils.

EXPERIENCE 2: Spend your day at the world’s largest indoor amusement park — West Edmonton Mall (pg 66)! With more than 800 stores and over 100 eating establishments, you’ll never want to leave. Splash in the waves at the five-acre World Waterpark or get vertical with the Mindbender roller coaster at Galaxyland. There’s also the Ice Palace, an NHL-sized rink in the middle of the mall, or you can take yourself to new heights on the three-level ropes course at Ropes Quest.

EXPERIENCE 3: Your adventure begins with the four pyramids that accent the Edmonton skyline, the Muttart Conservatory (pg 46). Tour fauna from arid, tropical and temperate climates or check out what the feature pyramid has on display. Continue your adventure with a step back in time at Fort Edmonton Park (pg 43), where you can try your hand living life as an early pioneer. Take a ride in an antique vehicle, take aim at the shooting gallery or stay the night in the iconic Selkirk Hotel! The Capitol Theatre also offers a beautiful re-creation of the circa 1929 original and is a great venue for live theatre and events.

More... Head to Sylvan Lake where you’ll find the largest inland lighthouse in Canada, 1.5 km of sandy beaches and an endearing resort community. WWW.EDMONTON.COM

EXCURSIONS

Step Back in Time From dinosaurs to trading posts, Alberta has one of the most culturally diverse and extraordinary histories in the world. With a seemingly endless list of museums and historical sites, the Edmonton area is the ideal place to take a journey back in time.

EXPERIENCE 2: Start your day’s history lesson with a visit to Fort Edmonton Park (pg 43). Nestled in 64 hectares of wooded parkland along the river valley, the Fort allows you to experience four historical time periods between 1846 and 1929. Then head just outside the city to the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village (pg 50), an award-winning open-air museum that retells the story of how Ukrainian immigrants settled in this region between 1892 and 1930. Over 30 historic structures have been relocated to the museum and they are staffed by costumed role-players who re-enact the routines and activities of that time period.

EXPERIENCE 3: One of Canada’s most popular museums, the Royal Alberta Museum (pg 46) certainly warrants a visit. The museum offers a full range of exhibitions and activities for every age group and you can regularly find some of the finest cultural and natural history collections across the country. A top historical stop in Edmonton, the Alberta Legislature (pg 40) and grounds are one of the best ways to learn about the province’s political history. Enjoy interactive tours, beautiful gardens, wading pools, seasonal lights and skating in the winter. Open 362 days a year, you can experience 23 hectares of parkland and monuments and a number of special events.

More... The Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, has 35 complete skeletons on display, making it the world’s largest dinosaur exhibit! 90

GREATER EDMONTON VISITOR GUIDE 2013

PHOTOS: JOHN J CHALMERS; TRAVEL ALBERTA; ROYAL ALBRTA MUSEUM

EXPERIENCE 1: Let it fly with the Reynolds-Alberta Museum (pg 46) and their collection of 88 vintage aircraft — the second largest collection in Canada. You can even see vintage cars and trucks, including the one-of-a-kind Duesenberg Phaeton Royale Model J! Next, head to the Alberta Aviation Museum (pg 40), displaying over 50 aircraft, where you can learn about the incredible progress of flight technology over the past century. While you’re there, check out the 90-year-old Vickers Viking IV, it is a true spectacle of how far aviation has advanced.


EXCURSIONS

Get Outside!

PHOTOS: DEVONIAN BOTANIC GARDEN; EDMONTON TOURISM

Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie or a casual outdoors person, Edmonton offers a bounty of options. It doesn’t matter if it is summer or winter, snow or sunshine, you’ll have a list long enough to keep you busy for days.

EXPERIENCE 1: With 150km of trails, Edmonton’s river valley has endless paths to explore. Enjoy walks, bike rides, jet boating, crosscountry skiing, snowshoeing or even a Segway Tour with River Valley Adventure Co. (pg 52). Afterwards, head out to Elk Island National Park (pg 43), second only to Africa’s famed Serengeti for wildlife viewing opportunities. Continue enjoying the outdoors at the Devonian Botanic Garden (pg 41), a spectacular 190 acre visual display made up of manicured gardens including the picturesque Kurimoto Japanese garden. Not limited to the warm months, the garden has events throughout the winter as well!

EXPERIENCE 2: The Edmonton region is home to more than 84 golf courses (pg 53), and with mid-summer daylight lasting close to 17 hours, you can squeeze at least a couple of rounds in! During the winter, Edmonton boasts three local ski hills — Rabbit Hill, Snow Valley, Edmonton Ski Club (pg 52) — that let you shred some powder without leaving the city limits. Alternatively, there are dozens of local skating rinks including at the beautifully-adorned City Hall (pg xx). Once the snow melts, the ice rink becomes a refreshing wading pool surrounded by rose gardens and fountains. Venture into the building for a behind-the-scenes tour and history lesson on the city.

EXPERIENCE 3: If you’re looking for some adrenaline fuelled action, why not consider jumping out of plane… with a parachute of course! You can try a Solo or Tandem first jump with Eden North Parachute School (pg 52) and learn to fly like the birds. If you like the heights but prefer to stay strapped in, consider E-Z Air Helicopter Tours (pg 99) where you can fly to a remote island on the North Saskatchewan River and enjoy a picnic. You can also try Windship Aviation (pg 52) for a hot air balloon flight from March to December. If you’d rather stay close to land, try one of Edmonton’s fishing excursions, such as Get Hooked Fishing Adventures (pg 99).

More... Celebrate Rocky Mountain House’s 100th anniversary, with camping, golfing, fishing, hiking, cross country skiing and snowmobiling! WWW.EDMONTON.COM

EXCURSIONS

Cultural Adventures Forever celebrating arts and culture, the choices in Edmonton from the Downtown Arts District to 124th Street to Whyte Avenue, will keep you endlessly entertained!

EXPERIENCE 2: Start your day with a free guided tour of the majestic Alberta Legislature (pg 40), the iconic building that is the seat of Alberta’s government. While downtown, why not stop by the impressive Winspear Centre (pg 62), home to the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra who recently performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City. You can also visit the Citadel Theatre (pg 62) for a captivating stage performance or hilarious comedy show. Make sure to plan a stop at one of Canada’s best museums, the Royal Alberta Museum (pg 46) with exhibits like the Syncrude Gallery of Aboriginal Culture.

EXPERIENCE 3: Make your way down to Old Strathcona (pg 29), one of Canada’s top-five neighbourhoods. Here you’ll find a rich history with eight theatre companies operating out of four iconic theatres like the Varscona and Walterdale Playhouse. You can see the nationally-renowned improvised show, Die-Nasty or take a stroll down the bustling streets to see work from local artists, shop in unique boutiques, or dine at an amazing restaurant like Packrat Louie or Murrieta’s. If you’re around on a Saturday, stop by the Strathcona Farmers’ Market (pg 64), open year-round, for some exceptional fresh and home-grown delights.

More... Experience cultural winter magic at the Jasper in January Festival with live music, comedy shows, food, beer and wine tastings and fireworks. 92

EXPERIENCE 1: Begin your cultural renaissance with the one-of-akind self-guided Gallery Walk on 124th Street (pg 33). Founded in 1981 to promote art and artists, with a special focus on Canadian talent, the galleries are all within walking distance of each other. Nine galleries feature everything from Canadian Aboriginal Art to unique, hand-crafted jewellery. Next, open your mind with the awe-inspiring Art Gallery of Alberta (pg 40). Located in the heart of Edmonton’s Downtown Arts District, the 85,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is a premier presentation venue for galleries and works from all over the globe.

Day trips

The communities of Bon Accord, Gibbons, Legal, Morinville, Redwater, St. Albert and Sturgeon County await the day tripper who heads north of the city. This is where you’ll find the outdoor St. Albert Farmers’ Market, the largest of its kind in Western Canada featuring over 250 vendors and up to 15,000 visitors every Saturday! Once the temperatures start to drop, you can swing by The Great Prairie Corn Maze in the fall and, for a little holiday fun, head to the Morinville Christmas Festival.

NORTH

Golfers heading in this direction should drive straight to Northern Bear (pg 56) — a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, while others will head to the U-pick farms where you can pick everything from raspberries to cauliflower! Fort Saskatchewan, the historical Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village (pg 49) and Lamont County can also be found to the east, and keep a look out for Mundare — home of the world’s largest sausage, the Village of Andrew — home to the world’s largest mallard duck, and Vegreville — home to the world’s largest Easter egg!

Northern Lights and Beyond

Though they streak the sky year round, the best time to see the northern lights is from August through to the end of March due to shorter daylight hours. EXPERIENCE 1: Visit the observatory at the TELUS World of Science (pg 49) and view the phenomenon along with planets and far away galaxies. Head to the Margaret Ziegler Theatre afterwards for the stunning show, or become a real-life tracker with the Aurora Watch website. EXPERIENCE 2: Head out to Elk Island National Park (pg 43) to visit the Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve. Established in 2006, the 300 square km region demonstrates how Elk Island is committed to creating the optimal environment to see the northern lights. EXPERIENCE 3: In Jasper National Park you can enjoy spectacular hiking, fishing and canoeing by day and then, as day turns to night, you can gaze up and have one of the best opportunities in the world to see the northern lights. Jasper is the only Dark Sky Preserve in Canada with a town wholly within it, and the park offers one of the best environments to see the northern lights.

Northern Alberta’s crisp night skies provide the perfect venue for some of the world’s most brilliant displays of aurora borealis. Bright dancing lights create rippling curtains of colour that brighten, dim, and simmer, choreographing an awe-inspiring show. One of Alberta’s most affordable attractions, viewing these vibrant green, pink, red, yellow, or violet clouds of light doesn’t require any special equipment; simply gaze up at the sky on a clear night and enjoy the show!
