A bit hidden, but go find it

A wonderful off-leash park in the river valley. Plenty of walking trails, and a few benches where you can sit and watch the river float by. Definitely go have a look.

This park has BEAUTIFUL nature walking/biking trails. Yes there are dogs allowed but so what. I love seeing all of the happy dogs out in the fresh air. Once you walk across the huge open field you come the pathways that lead you around the entire park. So beautiful in the spring/summer/fall. Nature at it's best.

It's a dog park. Not a park for humans. Humans are vastly outnumbered, all the dogs are off leashes, sniffing, licking, running, barking (that is if you're lucky). It's a shame that Edmonton doesn't have that many parks, and one can't comfortably use this one because of canines and their asinine owners. "Don't worry he doesn't bite!" How do you... More

I can't believe that this park is in Edmonton, it is a nice place to just get away from it all for a while.

My wife and i walk this park nearly every day for the last few years and have had many encounters with vicious dogs that are not leashed. Recently we were both attacked by two large German Sheppard dogs with my wife requiring five stitches to her thigh and costing us about $300 in ripped cloths, antibiotics, lost time etc. This...

We love going here for a walk! The dogs love the freedom of this off leash park and we have never had any problems with other dogs here! Definitely a must if your dogs like to swim! Lots of different paths and beautiful nature! An awesome spot with or without dogs!

Terwillegar is a great park for people and large dogs who can race around to their hearts' content. The walks and trails are great for introspection and the best part is that a large portion of the park is right on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River...a bonus for anyone who misses having water around in a prairie city.

This is a great place to take your dog, lots of trails and near the river so your dog can take a dip.

This is a big chunk of undeveloped land on the river. Nothing wrong with that, but I don't think it should really be called a park. There are bicycle paths through the park, so if your dog likes to chase them, may not be the best off-leash choice.

This is a "park" only in that it's municipal land with a parking lot and a porta-pottie or two. No other facilities, no grass, no fountains, etc., just raw land, a mix of open meadows and forest. It's great if you're a dog-walker (it's entirely an off-leash area) or a mountain-biker who doesn't mind dogs (lots of trails). River access... More
