Gold Bar Natural Spring

10955 50 street NW, Edmonton

In Gold Bar Park, coming out of the side of the hill, there is a natural spring. When I was little, my grandparents (who lived in Capilano, across 50 street) would bring me for walks through the woods, culminating in this splendid water source. I remember people bringing 4L milk jugs to fill up with water (I'm sure the city would put it under a boil advisory, but we drank straight from a tin cup filled up at the pipe which sticks out of the hill). Last year, I brought three of my friends on a hot, cobwebby, hungover adventure through the trees trying to find it again. We spent an hour looking around for it, making a crucial mistake—it's far easier to find the spring if you start at the top of the ravine and work your way down from the intersection of 43 street and 108 avenue than if you go up from the park itself. Eventually we found it, and I enjoyed sharing this special place from my childhood with my grown-up gang of friends!
