Population: 1,915

Just a 30-minute drive northeast of Edmonton lies the town of Redwater. With a population of 1,915 citizens, the town enjoys a smaller town lifestyle with convenient access to bigger city amenities.

The town of Redwater is named after the nearby Redwater River, which, in turn, was named after the red tint of the river’s water. The word red comes from Old English, which can be traced back further to the Common Germanic rauthaz. Common Germanic being the proto-language of all Germanic languages, proto-languages being the typically extinct, reconstructed (attested or documented) root languages of present language families. It’s all a rich tapestry of logical progression.

How to spend your time

If you’re anything like most sane people, you’re a huge golf fan, and visiting the Redwater Golf Club will be just the ticket for you! You could also drop by the Redwater Curling Club for some sliding-around-on-ice and yelling-seemingly-nonsensical-things action.

The Redwater Museum & Visitor Centre is the perfect place to take in some local history, while any of these restaurants should be able to sate your ravenous desire for food. Hungry for knowledge? Head over to the Redwater Public Library where you can read books. For those of you who don’t know, books are like blogs or ebooks, but on paper. Crazy, right?

Here’s a Redwater calendar of events if you’re one of those types who likes to be broadly aware of what’s going on.

Where to sleep...

If you’re looking for a place to stay while you’re in Redwater, you could stay at the Red Rest Motel for a good night’s sleep, because there’s nothing ominous about that name. You could also try the Redwater RV Park for some camping.

Rather find a place to rent? Take a look at these rental opportunities, either for yourself or with a roommate.

And a job to pay for it

Keeping you healthy, in body and mind

Should you find yourself in need of medical attention, the Redwater Health Centre offers most of health and wellness services, while you’re also not too far from Edmonton’s extensive network of hospitals and health centres.

Feel like having your teeth scraped or being put under some mild sedative? Sounds like you could use a trip to the Redwater Dental Clinic for a simple teeth cleaning or major surgery.
