      Strathcona Science Provincial Park is a provincial park located between Edmonton and Sherwood Park, south of the Yellowhead Highway and west of Highway 216. The park is situated in the North Saskatchewan River valley. It was established on December 12, 1979 to preserve the site from encroaching industrial development. It was the site of archeological excavations in 1978 to 1980.

      The park contains several abandoned interpretive buildings opened by the Alberta government in 1980. Remnants of the park's history as a public science center include tiled triangular obelisks, a boardwalk through the archaeological area, and a few interpretive plaques.

      The Park is mainly used for recreation, including Cross-country skiing & biathlon (5 km skate-groomed trails, and 30-lane biathlon range); and Mountain biking (8 km of paths along the North Saskatchewan River)

      Mountain biking trails also run along the river banks joining Strathcona Science Park and Goldbar Park--below the Northeast Edmonton Industrial Area.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
