Greater Hardisty Community Walking Map Fulton Place Capilano & Gold Bar Fulton Place Capilano & Gold Bar
Greater Hardisty Community Walking Map The communities of Capilano, Fulton Place and Gold Bar, often referred to as Greater Hardisty, invite active living. The district is bordered by the North Saskatchewan River to the north, Fulton Ravine to the west and Gold Bar Ravine to the east.
Recreation activities are endless. In winter, go skating at one of the outdoor rinks within the three community leagues. There is also the Michael Cameron Arena, the Ottewell Curling Club, 10 km of lighted cross- country ski trails, and toboggan hills that range from bunny runs to kamikaze.
Summer Summer amenities include sports fields, ball diamonds, playgrounds, spray parks and the Capilano Tennis Club. One can stroll through quiet neighbourhoods enjoying the well-landscaped yards and mature trees, or hike and bike the many ravine and river valley trails. Picnic spots are numerous. At any time of year, enjoy the Hardisty Leisure and Fitness Centre, the off-leash dog parks, and the six suggested walking routes on this map.
Signature View Picnic tables and benches invite people to stay awhile and enjoy the view of the river and the Edmonton skyline.
