This is a beautiful park for a fall walk. The trails are well maintained and extensive. The views of the river valley are wonderful. Birds are abundant and it's a great place to spend some time while in Edmonton.Also, there are many shelters with heated washrooms.

This park is a great place to go to year round. In summer it offers picnic areas, a place to cycle, walk, feed the waterfowl, paddle boat, a playground for children, amphitheatre for outdoor concerts as well as being the venue for some of the city's summer festivals and sports events. In winter the pond turns into a skating rink... More
