In the summer you can rent boats to take out on the lake. There is a great playground for kids. I have also ridden my... More

We enjoy visiting the park - the only drawback is the limited parking on busy weekends. The bridge over the river to the off leash park is a great spot for pictures.

This is a huge park and we use it often. If you are planning on using one of the BBQs there plan to get there early. On a nice day this is a very busy park. People are jogging, rollerblading, biking, walking, sunning, feeding the ducks in the pond and enjoying the picnic or playground area. There is lots of... More

Near the university and also parking across the river and part of the extensive river park system. Good for a run or bike ride. Lake is good in summer or winter for skating.

The park is the best in edmonton with year round activities. In the winter it is a great place to go for a skate. In the summer it is great for a picnic, volleyball, or just people watching. Dont miss the heritage festival held here every august.

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.
