It’s time to get outside and enjoy the spring weather!

Spring Active Logo

Spring is nature's way of saying it's time to be more active! Shrug off the winter clothes and take advange of Edmonton's great outdoors. The grass is starting to get greener, the days are getting longer, the air is warmer, and there’s so much space in the outdoors for getting active!


The lengthening days are perfect for a neighbourhood walk, or tune up the bike and take a ride outside your neighbourhood. For community service bonus points, take a garbage bag and go around your neighborhood picking up trash. Your neighborhood will look much nicer. If you have children or grandchildren, they will be excited to visit the neighbourhood playground.


Some of Edmonton's best playgrounds are found at:

The City of Edmonton's Play Rangers program will be active until April 23, 2023. From May 29 to June 4, SHAPE’s Wheel Week is joining injury prevention partners in Alberta to celebrate Parachute’s Safe Kids Week with a focus on safe and active transportation. This is an opportunity to encourage students and their families to get active by walking or using bikes, scooters, skateboards to travel to and from school, and around their communities.


If you're worried about bored inactive children, there are many offerings to enroll children in to be found through the Sport Council Activity Search. Select the activity of your choice and browse the search results.
