Attractions & Events

Be sure to have your photo taken at the wooden train trestle erected in 1919 when the Canadian National Railway Company opened its line from Edmonton to St. Paul. This point of the old rail line is now the western trailhead for the Iron Horse Trail, which heads east for 260 km of multi-use activities. Come in August to join the community for their family fun Fair Days.

Just south of town near the North Saskatchewan River is the Victoria Trail, which was once an indigenous trail leading to the Victoria Settlement – a Methodist mission established in 1862. The RCMP Memorial Statue is located along Victoria Trail, 15 km east of Highway 831. The statue was constructed in 1998 by the Victoria Home Guard Society to honour the original 20 members of the Northwest Mounted Police who traveled to Fort Edmonton on Victoria Trail in 1874.

Waskatenau has hosted various baseball championships from across Western Canada. The top-notch facility at the Pine Creek Ball Park is considered to be one of the top baseball facilities and hosting sites in Alberta.


If you love the outdoors, stay in Waskatenau at the Pine Creek Campground, which has powered camping stalls, a camp kitchen, fire pits, picnic tables, shower facilities, indoor bathrooms, and ball diamonds.
