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

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.

In winter the pond turns into a skating rink... More

This is a park in the sense that it has wide-open grassy spaces, a really pretty lake, loads of trees, a playpark for children, walking trails that run alongside the river. There are ducks and sometimes geese, there are fake swans, i'm not sure why. There are washroom facilities as well as barbecue and picnic facilities. You may need to... More

Play some soccer, throw a frisbee, or grab some weiners and do a BBQ. This place is the most popular Edmonton park for warm summer days. Even in winter there is ice skating on the huge man-made lake. This park is one of the only good things about Edmonton.

Great park to go for a scenic tour or have a picnic or even a BBQ. Great place to take in a festival or 2. Edmonton is wonderful that but specifically Hawrelak Park.

This park is my absolute fave in YEG. The walkways and water features are great. Staff are always accommodating and fun to be around. It was my first at an outdoor concert there and I WILL be back!
