It's Spring, which is the bringer of rain!

Instead of waiting for clear skies, put on your rainboots, get out of your apartment and explore the city of Edmonton.

Pump up a rainy day by exercising your body and mind at Rock Jungle Boulders located Downtown, a short distance from many of our buildings. With 6,000 square feet of climbing walls and everchanging challenges, it will be easy to conquer those rainy-day blues!

Rainy days don't stand a chance at the Muttart Conservatory! This beautiful horticultural centre blooms year-round and features 700 species of plants in 3 amazing pyramid biomes. Residents of our Queenland, Helen Suites, and El Mirador buildings live less than ten minutes from this amazing attraction.

For when you really don't want to brave the weather, make sure you stock up on books. Nothing beats snuggling up with a good book on a rainy day! Wee Book Inn on Whyte Avenue has loads of gently used books waiting for new readers. Or, when you're looking for the latest releases, Chapters-Indigo, just a 5-minute walk from our Kativa Apartments, has great selection.

The Art Gallery of Alberta is the perfect place to go on a rainy day. Not only can you see amazing art, but you can view films, learn about art while eating lunch, join a reading club, take in a lecture, or go to a yoga class. Residents of our Ramona Manor and El Mirador buildings are just minutes from the AGO!

Staying entertained can be hard on dreary days, but when you head to The Rec Room at South Edmonton Common, just minutes from Millbourne Mews, you can fill your day with loads of entertainment. They have high quality video games, simulation and physical games, and even axe throwing! When hunger strikes, visit one of the three restaurants to find some delicious eats.

This April weather has been crazy, but rest assured, Edmonton has some great indoor attractions to keep you entertained this "Sprinter"!
