DescriptionAlberta's oldest non-fortified community, St. Albert was established in 1861. The city is the site of the first cathedral west of Winnipeg. Its founder—Father Albert Lacombe—devoted 62 years to acting as a peacemaker between the Cree and the Blackfoot and as a negotiator between the Blood Tribe and the Canadian Pacific Railway.
St. Albert lays claim to western Canada's largest outdoor farmers market, which operates every Saturday mid-June to early October, as well as a vibrant arts community. The town also boasts both natural and man-made outdoor features, including Big Lake, just west of Ray Gibbon Drive, and the Woodlands Water Play Park, a small interactive water playground at 165 Sturgeon Rd.
