Edmonton's hottest club is Accidental Beach.
And its existence is literally accidental. The city is building an LRT bridge, and construction changed the currents on the North Saskatchewan River, creating the sandy strip.
And Edmontonians have been flocking to the happy accident.
What's good, Calgary?
You can even find it on Google Maps, now.
People are hoping that regardless of the bridge construction, the beach gets to stay a permanent fixture on the river.
But that could be a problem. The area isn't equipped to handle so many people, leaving garbage bins overflowing.
Which is all the more reason to visit before summer is over. ☀️
