QE Riverboat & other river valley photos
The Edmonton Queen Riverboat is a unique attraction in the heart of downtown Edmonton. The Edmonton Queen is a riverboat in Edmonton on the North Saskatchewan River. It started to sail on the river in 1995 and has become a unique Edmonton attraction.

The Edmonton Queen Riverboat offers a unique experience, a relaxing atmosphere, and one of the most picturesque views of our beautiful river valley and city. The perfect setting for all your events, whether that be a romantic dinner for two, a family-friendly cruise or a class field trip. Sailing four days a week we have a cruise for everyone. 

The following are my photo compilation of the Queen Elizabeth Riverboat and also will include other images related to Louise McKinney riverfront park.
