Spent 3 days at a music festival & it was perfect. A small amphitheater with seating for 1200 (?) & lawn space for festival chairs. The grounds are beautiful & its a large park with a building housing a small eatery & clean bathrooms.

The setting is ideal for concerts and sound. Pesky mosquitoes should be addressed. Come clothed and bug repellent and you will find it quite worthwhile. Bring your chairs and accoutrement.

I remember when Hawrelak park wasw called mayfair park. Beautiful well kept lawns with a nice stream fllowing into the main lake. Now the park is full of weeds and the grass is all patchy, and not to mention all the goose crap. Still a nice park but not what it used to be.

Great, big park. We've been to festivals here, birthday parties, bbq's etc. Lots and lots of space, lake is nice, though sometimes the prevalence of goose poop is a little annoying. Parking can be a challenge during the summer especially but there is lots of space to spread out once you get there.

Good day out. Amazing realisation of the amount of differing cultures represented. Some stalls very similar in crafts/goods for sale

We visited the park today during the Heritage Festival and had an amazing time! It is the busier time of the year in the park and a must go event in Edmonton. The park had tents with food from pretty much every country in the globe, live performances from different cultures, music and artisans. Because it is summer, make sure... More

Great day, tasting food from all around the world :) You get to see a lot of different cultures, and they're traditions.

How can you come to Edmonton and not visit Hawrelak Park? It's a beautiful place great for BBQs, picnics, lawn bowling, badminton, biking, an excellent jog around the park, paddle boating you name it! The best time to visit is during Heritage Days on August long weekend. An excellent time to walk the park and enjoy all the cultural pavilions.

A very large park area, lots of grass for picnics or children playing and areas with BBQ’s and bathrooms. There is a large pond with paddle boat rentals, and always birds and animals hanging around. During the winter they have a very large light show that is always great entertainment for kids, or any age!
