This is a great little place to stop on the Yellowhead. There are bathrooms (although they weren't open today), as well as places to have a picnic, a little river and a CN Railcar. The Pysanka of course takes priority here, and is absolutely gorgeous.

This is another interesting stop along the highway for information, stretching your legs and using a clean bathroom. There is a playground and picnic area for the little ones. Parking if plentiful and it's easy to find.

Wow is the word after being here. The gigantic egg 🥚 is amazing and the water and birds also complement vegerville. You truly won’t forget the sites the eyes will see. Anytime of the year.

This landmark is not to be missed. Fantastic artwork, great representation of the local culture. Set in a lovely park, and a farmers market was on at the time, along with a food truck and more. Beautiful!
