It’s not all about the Walter Dale Bridge, you know. There are 11 bridges in Edmonton — but that number doesn’t include footbridges. Ed has spent some time exploring the parks and the picturesque footbridges in the city on their latest socially-distant, solo walks.
If you’re thinking of going for a walk alone or with your cohort, Edify advises that you to please follow all health guidelines set by the provincial authorities, including social-distancing measures, when it comes to both indoor and outdoor activities.
Ed walked around Terwillegar Park over the weekend. It was nice to get some fresh air, and the warmer temperature made it all the more worth it.
Mill Creek Ravine
This bridge is located near Kulaway Drive and is a local favourite. The walk in the ravine from here is scenic with trails right beside the now frozen river. Ed enjoyed the walk because they could listen to their latest Spotify playlist loudly and not bother anyone.
The park has a few scenic footbridges worth exploring. Ed has crossed two of them while walking on the trails, and went up the stairs afterwards — it made for a great outdoor workout.
