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

A huge, unspoiled park on the banks of the Saskatchewan river. Great walking trails, bike paths and a vast playground for off-leash dogs! Can get crazy-busy on hot summer weekends! If you are there in August, it is also the launch point for the Sourdough raft race. A fun family event!

Varied terrain for hiking on the diverse trails. Meeting dogs and masters added interest--mostly positive!. Windy in the meadows.

I love this place! My dog loves this place! I think it has more than 25 km worth of trails that are all off-leash. for the most part, owners and dogs are awesome. They are well behaved and the dogs are in control. Occasionally the park is used for running races or mountain bike races.make sure you watch for signage.... More
