A great place with lots going on. Good for running and walking. Lots of picnic areas some of which you can reserve. Links to the river valley trails. An amazing park right in the middle of the city.

We swam in the lake and it was clean and clear. The surrounding area is traffic heavy but the park is a very nice oasis of calm running next to the river. Be sure and walk the trails. Large shade trees offer nice places to picnic. Had a good time at the park/

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.

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.
