Town of Gibbons
Rooted in Family
Description:Welcome to Gibbons, located just north of Edmonton at the junctions of Highway 28 and 28A. Settled in 1895 by W.R. Gibbons and family, this home, situated on the edge of the Sturgeon River, became the first stop on the Athabasca Landing Trail.
ATTRACTIONSToday, Gibbons boasts many local and area attractions, including the Gibbons Museum, Poplar Park Spray Pad, Jurassic Forest, and Goose Hummock Golf Course. Spend the afternoon in Reverend Orlando Roberts log home, the McLean Brothers Store and the McWhirter House and admire the treasures of the past at the Gibbons Museum. The site also houses the Town's first Fire Hall, a functioning windmill, barn, farm and fire equipment and a memorial garden. Take in the numerous festivals and events year round, like Pioneer Days and Gibbons Hometown Christmas. Hunt for treasures at one of Alberta's largest community garage sales with hundreds of vendors who come from all over Alberta.
OUTDOORSTake a walk among the birds, beavers and wild berries on the two km winding path bordering the Sturgeon River. Enjoy the cacti and other florae--more at home in the Badlands--which grow wild along the river's west bank. Drop your line into the Gibbons fish pond, a wonderful spot to spend a lazy afternoon.
