One of the key places in Griesbach our community members recommend are the walking trails!

The walking trails are all over the community, but a great place to start is at Roundel Lake. The pleasant lakeside will take you through the community!
Another great spot in Griesbach is Central Hill Park! Central Hill Park is right in the middle of the Griesbach and is a great place to spend some time relaxing, enjoying the views, and connecting with the community. From Central Hill Park, you can visit the stairs to the city skyline! These stairs were voted one of Griesbach’s top locations for being a great place to workout and for the spectacular view at the top!
Another amazing view point in Griesbach is Bedford Basin. Bedford Basin is a tribute to the Royal Canadian Navy; it shows appreciation for the Edmonton Navy Base, HMCS Nonsuch, as well as the important Navy work done in Edmonton. Bedford Basin is a beautiful lookout point you should definitely check out!
Patricia Lake was incredibly popular with our community members, Bailey Bridge that crosses the lake and our fountain were two favourite locations from the community! The Bailey Bridge is an ode to the Bailey Bridges that were used by Allied Forces in WWII, and is a fantastic spot in Griesbach to spend some time over the water. Our fountain is a lovely water feature, and it’s wonderful to sit on the ample park seating and watch the water bubble!
Finally, if you’re in need of a pick-me-up in our community, Griesbach members voted for Paramo Cafe as one of the best places to visit! This locally owned coffee shop sits in Griesbach’s commercial area in the southeast corner. You can find perfectly brewed coffee and teas as well as delicious baked goods!
