The Strathcona Wilderness Centre is your four-season outdoor adventure centre! Just a half hour drive east from Edmonton, the centre is fun for the whole family, no matter the time of year.

As fresh fallen flakes fill the sky in the winter, explore 550 acres of parkland with 12km of interpretive trails, or just enjoy a relaxing hike with the whole family. Bring your own equipment, or rent cross-country skis and snowshoes on-site, fitted by knowledgeable staff. Listen to the soft crunching snow beneath your skis as you glide through stands of aspen, birch and poplar along the groomed trails.

During the summer months, enjoy a family camping trip. Daytime picnic sites and a cookhouse complement overnight campsites that are perfect for that outdoorsy family. Spend the day exploring the interpretive hiking trails or canoeing on the river. Once you have honed your outdoor skills, a game of disc golf will have you combining Frisbee and golf on an free 9 or 18 hole course.
