City of Edmonton, AB

As Alberta’s capital, it serves as the region’s governmental center. It is the most northerly city in North America and is also referred to as the “Gateway to the North.” Edmonton has the greatest area of parkland per capita in Canada, and its North Saskatchewan River valley parks system is the longest stretch of connected urban parkland in North America.
