"Bellerose River Walk" is a natural area in Sturgeon County that parallels the north shores of the meandering Sturgeon River. The park and trail system connect a series of high income communities and rural properties. In the early days, it was the Sturgeon River that drew fur traders and First Nations up this tributary of the North Saskatchewan River looking for new places to establish settlements such as the City of St. Albert, Alberta. The river was essential to locals during the nineteenth century providing a source of food and transportation.

Today, the river is mainly used as a source of water for the farms and agricultural facilities, including Sturgeon Valley Golf and Country Club, that are located within the Sturgeon River's watershed. Stakeholders are attempting to restore the river to its original glamour as years of improper use have pushed the ecological limits of the Sturgeon River to its brink.
