Revamped ‘End of the World’ lookout officially reopens in Edmonton

Revamped ‘End of the World’ lookout officially reopens in Edmonton
Canada
A popular lookout spot in Edmonton that offers views of the North Saskatchewan River valley has had some work done and officially opened to the public on Wednesday.

Work began on Keillor Point — which is also known as “ End of the World ” — in mid-October.

The project included construction of a staircase, hand railing, a formalized viewing area and a granular trail. They’re meant to improve safety and accessibility.

The walking trail and landscaping were completed in the spring.

Keillor Point is located at the top of the riverbank on Saskatchewan Drive between 74 Avenue and 76 Avenue in the Belgravia neighbourhood.

“I think it really provides another viewpoint for everybody to just see how amazing… I mean, look behind me and you look at the view we have up here,” said Nicole Wolfe, director of Open Spaces Infrastructure Delivery with the city.

“Before, only certain people could get here. Now, we have the ability for people to take their children here and have picnics here, have bicycles in and out.”
