  • Fantastic playplace. Keeps the kids busy and tires them out. Could use a coffee/snack bar for the parents. Went on a short guided nature walk and it was very educational as well as fun for the kids.
  • Very interesting. Good for short visits . The suraunding just gorgeous specially for walks .
  • Wish there was more programming for adults here, but it's a great place to bring kids and burn off some energy. Go on a day with drop in programs to get the most bang for your buck
  • Simple, and not too large, especially at end of season or just a random drop in.. the staff here was fantastic... free to go look around without kids, the outdoor trails behind the place are great for a short walk and they have tons of back country mountain bike trails cut in everywhere as well, you can go for a 20 minute walk, or a 2 hour tromp through steep woods...must be beautiful in the snow, was lovely on a fall day. Looking forward to seeing the rooftop garden in the spring/summer. Some good educational buys in the gift shop and indoor opportunities for kids to play n learn make it a great stop with a few munchkins. Cheap as heck too.
  • The kids seem to love the Tegler Discovery Zone, but the smell is horrendous. Trying to think how to describe it-maybe a combination of really bad BO or cat spray. It's REALLY bad.

Where to stay in Edmonton

For access to the best entertainment options and proximity to the North Saskatchewan River and the parks surrounding it, you can't beat Downtown's accommodations. Look near the intersection of Jasper Avenue and 100 Street NW--you'll be right next to Central metro station and just a few minutes' walk from the riverside park. If you're after nightlife and cafe culture, look south of the river in Strathcona, or in the neighboring student hub of Garneau. You can also choose from a large selection of accommodations farther out in West Edmonton.
