Broadmoor Lake Park: Running Trails and More

If you're an avid runner who wants to hit the trails for a run while enjoying the beautiful outdoors, scenery, and fresh air, Broadmoor Lake Park could be the perfect place for you. Not only does this park offer a smooth-terrain running trail that loops around the lake at the parkland and extends into Salisbury Athletic Park, it also offers several activities that may cater to the non-runners in the family. With a large playground, picnic area, and sand volleyball courts, you can make it a full day of outdoor activity at Broadmoor Lake Park. You can also tailor your run suit your ability level, and cut it as short or as long as you please. Broadmoor Lake Park is located on Oak Street north of Sherwood Drive.

5KM Loop: Strathcona Science Provincial Park

Just on the western border of Sherwood Park you'll find Strathcona Science Provincial Park, which overlooks the North Saskatchewan River. With a rich history in Alberta, this was a site for annual aboriginal camps for thousands of years.

Today the park is full of locals and tourists seeking to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. For the more advanced trail runners, the 5 kilometre running trail that loops around the park will surely offer a satisfying and rigorous exercise.
