The Fourth Street Experience
Throughout Edmonton’s history, the name “Fourth Street” has had a certain allure. Today, this vital promenade has become irresistible.
Independent restauranteurs rule, offering unique and sought-after dining experiences. There will never be a lack of options, as Fourth Street has the highest concentration of restaurants in the city.
Original brick and beam warehouses are everywhere, a fundamental ingredient to the street’s unique charm. And unlike many other places in Edmonton, pedestrians can explore this street by foot or bike. The sidewalks are accessible year-round, and designated bike lanes allow for easy cycling. Deemed a “walker’s paradise”, Fourth Street offers aesthetics and details you might miss from your car.
Bigger picture, the ICE District, where all entertainment needs can be met under one roof, and the downtown core are mere steps away. Grant MacEwan University is a five-minute walk, and the University of Alberta is fifteen minutes away by LRT. And your favourite coffee shop is across the street, or around the corner. There will never be a shortage of caffeine.
Saturday mornings in the summer give you the option to step outside your front door to over 150 vendors. The Farmer’s Market is the place to support local vendors, and be involved in Fourth Street community.
On 104th, the city begins at your doorstep.
