Well, it's just a regular park with a lake in the middle where you can use paddle boats and have fun. You may rent one of the 4 big shelters if you are arranging a family get together and a bar B Q. This park is a lot of fun with the summer festivals.. with the heritage days, there are... More

I love Edmonton, I come back every year. I used to live in Edmonton. The Hawrelark Park is reknown as the most beautiful park man-made in Canada...2 weeks ago, I could admire the geese with their yellow babies...even the Cree people I worked with had never seen the babies of the geese...and we are right in the Goose Break of...

Big park with amenities. Great scenery, man made lake, proximity to North Sask. River. Great place to relax feed the ducks, play games, fly a kite, or rent a paddle boat in the summer. Winter is fabulous for the Silver Skate Festival and the skating on the pond. All facilities are clean and picnic sites plentiful. If you want a... More

This park has paddle boats and Shakespeare in the summer and pond skating in the winter. During major events (Heritage festival) parking is very limitted and access is either by bus or a 20 minute walk (or longer). Wood burning camping grills, group facilities, playground. Even though it is a very big park, it can get fairly full on a... More

Went there recently with a friend and we sat at one if he picnic tables and had a picnic. Do bring a table top cover and keep in mind there are a ton of geese and geese droppings everywhere but in some areas more worse than others. There are public washrooms and lockers though it's kinda run down and stinky... More

I've been there just for a short time but it's really nice and quiet! Guess it's more crowded in the summer. Will definitely return next time i'm in Edmonton!

I am from out of town and wanted to enjoy the nice weather so decided to search for hiking trails. The trails weren't difficult but it was a great leisure walk. After I enjoyed the pond and bird watching. I noticed that at the entrance there was a gate that said closed when full, so this might be common in... More

This park has always been a part of our family life, long walks in the summer and fall, Heritage Days in August, ice skating in the winter or just people watching. A beautiful place to pass the time.
