East-Central Travel Guide
Welcome to East-Central!While other centres in Alberta continue to sprawl, the vibrant communities of East-Central Alberta encapsulate the pioneer spirit and small town charm that founded this province decades ago. The area, located just southeast of Edmonton, offers the kind of pastoral landscape expected, with rolling parkland, pristine lakes and fields of farmland. Wainright, home to a large military base, holds an annual four-day rodeo with the world's largest chuckwagon race. Camrose makes use of its expansive landscape with three golf courses and a large outdoor country music festival held at the end of July. Beaverhill Lake Reserve, at Tofield, is the summer resting place for hundreds of thousands of Canada geese, snow geese, swans, cranes and more.
Preserving the history of Canadian rail, the Wainwright Rail Park features vintage railway equipment, including various cars, cabooses, locomotives and tools.
