Outdoor Activities

A pond, nature trails, and colonies of friendly squirrels are just a small part of this nature center. John Janzen Nature Centre is a fun place for children, with regular scheduled events and programs to help them understand the nuances of nature and wildlife. Dirt-cake making is a highlight; now there is a skill to learn. The center is next to Fort Edmonton Park. There are about four kilometers (2.5 miles) of nature trails to explore on your own. However, staff is on hand to answer your questions.
