You get to rent a little boat thing

This is a very nice park. I really enjoy the little boats you can rent and take out on the little pond.

Perfect park for a Sunday experience. Walk around, feed the ducks, rent a paddle boat and go for a splash. Parking is limited, and transit does not go there except for special events ( Edmonton Transit, you are dolts!) Bring friends or family and relax.

This park is the main attraction for the river valley and has so many activities in both the summer and winter. Shakespeare in the Park is always worth catching and it's nice to visit nature within the city.

This park has served locals and visitors for many years, during all seasons. The sheer size and location of the park allow for everyone to access it and use the facilities at no cost. It is great for family outings with ample room for children to play safely. The world famous Heritage Festival could not ask for a better venue.

Is a very nice spot to visit in winter and summer, for barbecuing, attend festivals, city activities, is a very nice and open place were you can take the sun and admire nature, close by there is a dog park what makes it very suitable for animal lovers or pet owners. Also, there is a paddle-boat rental place in a... More

Just came back from the annual Heritage Festival which is held at this park. It is a huge park that runs along the river and boasted a small lake. There are so many paths for running, walking or cycling. It is a lovely place to have a family picnic or just wander and enjoy the scenery. There is also an... More

Large park with plenty of paths and walkways to keep you wandering for hours. Great views of the river valley! Only complain a lack of signs, other than that a lovely afternoon walking.

It was a great fun to be with the family in this spacious park which fulfils the needs of all the visitors. Beautiful lake with the facility of pedal boating for kids and adults was a great fun followed by ice-creams. Ducks and pelicans in the lake is feast to the eyes. Ideal place for bar-be-cue during summer and for... More

Park is large and spacious. Plenty of picnic spots. Each August long weekend the park hosts Heritage Days. A celebration of the ethnic diversity found in the City of Edmonton. The lake has been cleaned and deepened. Spring and fall times bring hosts of migratory ducks and geese. The Edmonton Symphony performs under the large 'tent'. Lots of parking, lots... More
