See the Bison up close in Elk Island National Park
Earn huge Parent of the Year points when you bring the family to Elk Island National Park. Seeing a herd of bison this close sure is impressive. You can hear them breathe and gaze into their bright eyes. During the spring season the calves are a gorgeous orange colour. Nature feels so, well, close here that it’s hard to believe you are less than an hour’s drive from Edmonton. Have a lakeshore picnic, paddle a canoe or take a leisurely hike along a stretch of the 80 km network of trails. You’re almost guaranteed to see whitetail and mule deer, moose, elk and coyotes.
