The park host many functions through the year and is well equipped for almost any activity. We have been there for cultural festivals, rock concerts, symphony orchestra performances, family reunions, barbecues, ice skating and even just for a walk in the park. It is an oasis in the city and a jewel in Edmonton.

Great Spacious Park. Can have BBQ's and see concerts there. Have done a lot of walking there. I don't dislike anything about it.

If it's summer, this is the place to go with friends. Find a spot for a picnic, play some wide games, go home tired and happy.

The park is nice and huge but it is not for my family. The kids want to go to the playground which is small and crowded.

This park is beautiful with all the space around. I used to come and study here when I was studying at the University of Alberta and walk down the hill. I would sit on the grass or one of the park benches around. In the summer, it was great to see the ducks in the water, or rent the paddle... More

Obviously a beautiful park, but not much for winter activities except for maybe cross-country skiing.

William Hawrelak Park is the park our family goes to whenever we want to hit the river valley. There is a beautiful path that goes around the whole park, as well as numerous picnic shelters and picnic sites. A little playground for the kiddies, and a central facility where you can rent paddle boats in the summer and skates in... More
