This park is an absolute 'must see', if you are looking for a place outdoors to go for some down time, some family time and a place to bbq and/or picnicing, playing frisbee or any games with family. The park fills up fast some days as some people spend the entire day there

Like the pond where one can see the Canadian geese. Easily accessible. Well maintained toilets. Ample barbecue pits and seatings. An exciting introduction to the natural world for families. Really a refreshing oasis for all visitors.

It's a great park for a walk, run, or a picnic. It hosts a variety of events throughout the year, and I've attended the Shakespeare Outdoor Festival and the Heritage Festival here, I have to say each time the park was in impeccable shape, a true park oasis in the city. The only downside is it's accessibility, if you don't... More

I love this park; it has picnic sites, trails for walking/running/biking, footbridge access to the zoo... It's a shame that the pond is being dredged right now, but it's usually got a very lovely scenic lake too, filled with ducks and geese, and it has peddle-boats. The playground is great here too. What can I say, one of my favourite... More

The park is very nice to have a picnic at especially with kids. There is a playground there so they can have fun while you relax in the shade underneath the trees. We walked down the paths beside the river and it was great.

No Dogs allowed, lots of parking, lots of private places for a fire, cook hot dogs, have a picnic, private tables in the woods near the river if you like, play frizbee in the park, fly a kite. See the Symphony under the sky, feed the ducks, skate in the winter, paddle boats in the summer, fun, fun, fun!

We live in Edmonton so we go to the park almost everyweekend in the summer time. It's a great place to spend time and BBQ with family and friends. It's great to listen and watch the shows presented at the park. I would definitly recommend to people to see the park once.

Sorry for the cliché, but this clean, open, varied space combines accessibility, lots of space, and lots to do. Take a long walk, take the swan boats for a spin, toss a Frisbee, or ride your bike. Even in winter, a walk or some cross-country skiing on groomed trails into the beautiful river valley make this park a must-see.
