Fall in Love with St. Albert Ravines!

Let us introduce you to our magical ravines! They’re scattered throughout St. Albert neighbourhoods and made of tall trees and shrubs that reach up into the sky and drape an embracing canopy over the paved trails. You can’t help but marvel in their beauty as you enjoy a stroll.

If you head to the trails soon, you can catch the beautiful colours of the changing leaves. In the winter, the trees sparkle and glow with the white stuff. There isn’t a bad time of year to experience them! Since all of them are connected to the trail system, there’s always a park or playground close by to add extra fun to your family outing.
