Edmonton is an exciting and vibrant city. While you’re here, check out the West Emonton Mall, go to an Oilers hockey game, or explore when of our historical neighbourhoods. There’s endless activities and places to explore.
WEST EDMONTON MALL
Welcome to the Mt. Everest of shopping and indoor entertainment in North America. Spanning the equivalent of 48 city blocks, West Edmonton Mall is part entertainment complex, part shopping and dining destination.
Let out a gasp of excitement as you slip in from the cold into the tropical setting of World Waterpark, home to the world’s largest indoor wave pool. Later, climb aboard a fullsize pirate ship, or skate beneath the stars under a glass dome.
If you’re in a shopping mood, there are over 800 shops and services, from brand name chains to one-of-a-kind boutiques. Want to pick up some amazing Edmonton-made goods? Stop by Fourpost a curated market of local and
and emerging brands, featured on the first floor by the Chapters.
Afterward, check out the casino, movie theaters, mini golf courses, catch penguins frolicking at Sea Life Caverns or meet Pablo at the Sea Lions’ Rock.
Hungry after riding a Galaxyland roller coaster for the fourth time? Stroll down New Orleans-themed Bourbon street for some fine dining, then take in a live show. Or hit Chinatown and shop the colourful T & T Asian Market.
Plan on spending at least a full day (and night) of shopping, playing, and indulging. The place is as big spirited as all of Alberta.

COUGAR CREEK GOLF RESORT
Cougar Creek Golf Resort is a championship length golf course that winds through the natural setting. Golf course architect Bill Robinson of Oregon designed this course to make the most of the beautiful treed and rolling terrain. The immaculately manicured bent grass greens, tees and fairways are generously spotted with sand bunkers and most have water in play.
Each hole is unique. The first eleven holes weave through the trees, holes twelve through fifteen open up and are somewhat links style, holes sixteen and seventeen go back into the trees and hole eighteen is open but watery.
The Par 72 course is designed for those who enjoy and look forward to playing the game of golf. Multiple tees on every hole allow the course to be played from 5,200 yards to 6,900 yards. The course is intended to test all calibre of golfers.
Cougar Creek is a public facility intended for daily green fee play yet its location and facilities make it well suited for hosting tournaments/groups and corporate events. Our staff is available to help you plan and customize your private or corporate groups to provide a truly memorable experience.
