    St. Albert Theatre Troupe is a non-profit volunteer run theatre company that specializes in comedy dinner theatre. They have a great buffet and hilarious performances that are bound to raise a few eyebrows with topics ranging from marriage issues, to psychiatry, to vasectomies. Great entertainment and decent price.

    The Enjoy Center is a new place in St Albert. Holes greenhouse has moved there. It is so bright and open you feel comfortable there.

    There are programs to learn about flowering, gardening, herb arrangement, juicing, and even wine and beer tasting.

    There is an organic grocery store on the bottom floor. You can find many gluten free items, organic and other healthy choices in the store. Upstairs there is Beautiful Home and Gift, Hillbilly Tools for cooks.

    The best part is the bistro that is upstairs. It is very open and there are many comfortable chairs to sit and drink your coffee and eat your pannini sandwich.

    The St. Albert Botanic Park, is part of St. Albert's Red Willow Park Trail system. The park is home to numerous varieties of native trees, shrubs, roses, lilies, and peonies. It's easy to find and a great destination for a longer bike ride along our Red Willow Trail. My son and I were amazed how much the garden has grown and it is still expanding.. The Rose Garden is lovely and has some nice marble benches and statues..The sunflowers were in bloom as well.. More pics will be posted soon.!
    By the way the garden is open from sunset to sunrise and there is no cost..

    ....is located on Sir Winston Churchill Avenue Southbound just before Riel Drive starts.
    Lions Park is a great park for Picnics ( with plenty of fire pits) and has a playground for the kids. In case it rains there is shelter availbale. It's also close to the Sturgeon River and connected to the Red Willow Park.
    We spent many good times there .
    In May Lions Park is used for the Children's Festival.
    The Totem Pole at the entrance was donated by the West Coast Nations.

    Sandy Beach

    Sandy Beach

    Sandy Beach is about 35 km NW of St. Albert and the closest lake nearby. The drive is quite scenic as it takes you through the Alexander Reserve ( Kipothakaw) where you will see a buffalo/deer paddock close to the lake. There is a campground which is owned by the band which provides you with plenty of entertainment.
    I have only been to the public beach and enjoyed building sand castles with my son. The beach also has a playground and you can rent paddle boats and canoes at the close-by restaurant. BTw the restaurant has great floats..:):)
    You can also go for little walks along the lake.

    Grain Elevators

    Acting as a perfect backdrop are the community’s historic grain elevators and an adjacent Métis Heritage Site, Riverlot 24. The St. Albert Grain Elevator Park tells of the town’s agricultural history and they are located at the start of Meadowview Drive and quite easy to spot. Tours can be booked at the phone number below.

    Grotto- Vital Grandin Centre

    by Hanau93 Written Jan 24, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Grotto

    Erected in 1920 this grotto is a replica of the Lourdes one.. At this time it was 35 feet long and 12 feet high. Stones were gathered from along the Sturgeon River by the local farmers. The statues are of Mother Mary and Saint Bernadette.The first pilgrimage was held in 1938.
    In 1950 the grotto was rebuilt and it now stands 35 high and is 70 feet long.

    or me personally it is a peaceful place to be although I am not Catholic.:)
