Strathcona County is an excellent travel destination to explore.

Tourism strategy

Strathcona County is developing a tourism strategy and implementation plan. The strategy will assess and address the County’s need for enhanced tourism. View details.

Strathcona County is an up and coming choice as a tourism destination. From weekend visits to staycations, there’s always something new to discover in the county.

With over a thousand square kilometres of diverse ecosystems which span from wetlands to prairies, the natural areas available to the county are second to none. Visit the Beaver Hills Biosphere and enjoy the great outdoors available to visitors either at Elk Island National Park, Ministik Bird Sanctuary, or others.

A strong presence of art and culture within Sherwood Park gives multiple options to enjoy local art either through local galleries such as Gallery @501, or Loft Gallery. Learn about local culture on display at Festival Place with live music or live performances or learn about the history of the area at the Strathcona County Museum and Archives, or Bremner House.

Strathcona County is continually working to build the tourism industry and is proud to have recently completed a tourism strategy which will help build and create experiences for those who visit, or those who live here.

You can visit Strathcona County, and always discover something new.
