The established neighbourhood of Garneau bustles with people year-round.
Next door to the University of Alberta and its teaching hospital, the established neighbourhood of Garneau bustles with people year-round, perched on the southern bank of the North Saskatchewan River. With an arthouse cinema, and independent cafes and shops lining many of the major streets, the vibrant energy expands well beyond the school year. Amenities are in large supply including banks, grocery stores and pharmacies as well as access to the University and Health Sciences LRT stations. One of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city, it has many apartment buildings, condos and historic homes.
One of the very first Running Room shops started by Edmontonian John Stanton. Open since the mid-1980s, the store carries a wide range of running apparel and footwear. The Running Room fosters the running community by not only outfitting customers but by also hosting training workshops as well as a free Run Club twice weekly.
There's lots to do when you visit Garneau Park. Kids (and kids at heart) can climb, jump and swing in the colourful playground equipment and sand box. You can sit amongst the green space and grassy hills. Participate in an arts or craft class at the Edmonton Arts Centre. Or ramp up your competitive side with tennis and beach volleyball --- you can get involved in a game, a tournament, league or lesson.
A yoga, meditation and movement studio with sessions in Hatha, Hatha Flow, Vinyasa Flow, Akhanda Flow, Yin, Restorative, Partner and Acro Yoga. Located on the lower level, below the Noorish Restaurant, the studio builds upon the health-focused lifestyle promoted by eatery.
Down in the valley, just north of the Garneau boundary, are facilities for year-round recreation. Picnic sites sprinkle the massive green space, with a network of hiking, cross-country skiing and cycling trails woven throughout. Hidden in the forest is the 18-hole Kinsmen Pitch and Putt golf course. A playground, water spray park and sports fields available for public use. Get your workout in inside the Kinsmen Sports Centre with its 200m track, extensive weight-lifting and fitness room. Swim or dive in the many indoor pools and diving tank. For a more laid back swim in the summer months, soak in the sun and water at the Queen Elizabeth Outdoor Pool. Or get caught up on the local history of the area at the John Walter Museum.
Finely crafted coffee and eats offered amidst a beautifully designed, airy cafe with art deco touches, flooded by natural light. The Garneau location is one of the three cafes run by and offering up coffee from the Edmonton-based micro coffee roaster.
A rustic, intimate eatery serving up seasonal menus on sharing plates, alongside a collection of cocktails, craft beer, whiskey and wine. Enjoy a drink and conversation at the small bar on the main floor or head upstairs for a dining room experience or, if the weather cooperates, gather out on the patio.
An unpretentious cafe known for putting a twist on traditional Indian and Pakistani dishes while accommodating food sensitivities and diet restrictions. This is the original location for the local licensed chai bar, before it opened cafes on 124th Street, Jasper Ave, Whyte Ave and soon in Terwillegar. The place for some of Edmonton's best chai.
Nestled among university frat houses, walk-ups and high-rise apartment buildings, is the modern, stylish coffeehouse, Leva. Taking inspiration from the cafes found in Italy, customers can dig into fresh pastries, organic gelato and light bites, including thin crust pizza.
Kindergarten to Grade 6 students can participate in either the Garneau (Regular) program or the Child Study Centre (CSC) program.
