Top Kids Activities and Businesses in Edmonton

Published Jun 1, 2017 | Updated Feb 19, 2020

Check out our Best of the Block award winners for Edmonton.

Three months ago ChatterBlock launched a NEW feature that allowed parents to rate and review all of the camps, classes, attractions and businesses that are found on our website. In order to highlight this our team ran a business appreciation program called Best of the Block. The purpose of this was to showcase businesses in and around the city of Edmonton. 

We are happy to announce that our users pulled through big time and submitted some absolutely fantastic ratings and reviews.

We know these reviews and ratings will significantly help everyone in the community plan and register for only the best kid friendly activities.

In particular, some parent submitted reviews stood out to us so much that we thought they were worthy of sharing. Please take a look at what these parents had to say.

Resonate Music School & Studio 

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 

My son wanted to start piano lessons last December so after looking around I registered him at Resonate. He absolutely loves the piano lessons there.

It's nice that they have a flexible schedule and the make up sessions. Everyone there is very friendly and the fellow at the front desk is very nice and informative.

Edmonton Valley Zoo 

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

We always love going to the zoo. We pack our own lunch and just splurge on ice cream to make the excursion more reasonable. We also find that going on a cloudy or cooler day means we see a lot more action with the animals and don't get as fatigued walking in the heat. Camera is a must and a stroller or a backpack to keep extra clothes or the ones the kids she'd as well as water bottles and snacks make for a great day. Picnic blanket is nice too so you don't have to find a table and can picnic beside your favourite exhibit ;)

Sandra Gray School of Dance

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

This is an amazing school for dance. My daughter has been in for two years now and she absolutely loves it. The dance teachers and staff are very friendly and it is a very fun environment for all. I definitely recommend this dance school.

Alberta Diving and Swimming Club

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

I want to take a moment to thank Coach Xu and the ADSC for all their hard work. It's an honour to have my 13-year-old daughter Angel learn to dive with Coach Xu. She experienced diving from a whole other vista during a summer camp held by Xu in August 2016. Under his guidance, Angel and her peers have made huge progress.

Coach Xu is extremely professional and very focused on aiding his students. Xu's leadership, professionalism and commitment to teaching has had great influence to the children and youth who're taking the diving lessons. Some children even set a goal to dive in the Olympics. Coach Xu gets my highest recommendation as an executive diving coach and mentor.

The Dance Theatre Performing Arts Centre

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

My oldest daughter has been dancing at this studio for the last 9 years and my youngest for 4 years and they love it. I can't imagine dancing anywhere else.

Leslie R 

Fort Edmonton Park 

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 

Every time I take the kids here, we discover something new. I've been here on several field trips with my kids & the staff are very knowledgeable & great with the kids.
