Alberta Scenery Photo Tour

Photo:  Capital City - Edmonton

This photo shows Edmonton's downtown skyline.  

Edmonton is the capital city of the province of Alberta.  The city is located near the centre of the province.  The municipality of Edmonton is Canada's fifth largest with a population of just over 700,000 based on the 2005 census.  (And it's where my Grandma lives!)

Edmonton has one of the lowest population densities in all of North America (in other words there's lots of space compared to the number of people who live there).  It's a nice spacious place to live with loads of parks and nice big yards.  

To put it in perspective, the city of Edmonton takes up more space (more land) than Chicago -- but Edmonton has only about 700,000 people while Chicago has nearly 3 million.  

Another example for comparison is New York.  Edmonton has just about 70 times more land per person than New York does.  If you imagine land as jelly beans, every person in Edmonton would get 70 jelly beans for every one jelly bean a person in New York received.  (My grandma likes jelly beans and long walks along the North Saskatchewan river!)
