Vegreville Attractions

The breathtaking and symbolic Pysanka is located at the Elks/Kinsmen Park at the east end of town, on the north side of Highway 16. This amazing, giant Ukrainian Easter Egg was built in 1974 as a monument to honor the RCMP and its long history of bringing peace and security to the area.

Borrow-A-Bike and Borrow-A-Boat Programs are available at the Vegreville Visitor Information Centre. Take a bike for an hour or for the day - just bring it back before the centre closes. All bikers need to do is provide a valid driver's license, fill out an online waiver and wear the provided helmet.  Also available are 3 paddle boats available for use at the Elks Pond. Enjoy peddling around the water as you take in the view from a new perspective.
