There is more to the community of Leduc than the notable part it plays in the story of Alberta’s energy industry.
A midsized city, Leduc is ideally situated to provide the best of urban living with a more relaxed, semi-rural lifestyle. Located southwest of Edmonton on highway two, Leduc has easy access to the main vein that connects Edmonton, Red Deer, and Calgary. Because it’s a major highway, residents are well-placed to get wherever they’re going any time of year.
Globetrotters and domestic travelers alike will love being less than 10 kilometres from the Edmonton International Airport, while shoppers can enjoy the Premium Outlet Collection shopping centre.
It’s a friendly community. While it’s technically a city, the local atmosphere has more in common with smaller towns. Everything you need is within a few minutes’ drive, from hardware to healthcare.
There is a full calendar of family-friendly events that includes parades, community festivals, trade shows, and an annual rodeo. Extracurricular activities for kids of all ages, as well as groups for adults in sports, theatre, arts, and other hobbies are numerous. Soccer, hockey, volleyball, drama, art, photography, and dance groups are just a small sample of the activities you can join.
Leduc’s urban parkland features plenty of playgrounds and abundant sports fields for soccer, football, and baseball. With more than 34 kilometres of multi-purpose trails for walking, biking, and in the winter, cross-country skiing. You might even glimpse deer as you walk along the ravine.
The largest of several lakes inside city limits – Telford Lake – hosts boaters and paddlers all summer long, capping off the season with annual dragon boat races. In winter, explore the six kilometre system of Nordic ski trails, or watch the endurance ice racers whiz by on the lake’s frozen ski track. Indoors, the Leduc Recreation Centre offers an excellent fitness facility, two field houses, a four-lane walking track, eight-rink curling club, and three NHL-sized hockey arenas.
