Enjoyed the play and the park was okay. Not great for people with mobility issues as the walkway is uphill. Play was great!

One of the best parks in Edmonton and that's saying something! Many festivals here throughout the year, but really just the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature.

The park was beautiful. We went to see the Shakespeare play 'As You Like It' at the outdoor theatre. Had a wonderful time!

With its huge area, there's always a place for everyone. For family picnics, sporting events, concerts, quiet nature trip, bird watching, and romantic dates.

We saw this park on the list of things to do and ended up driving down to it. We were expecting walking trails and things to do but it is simply a big park with lots of bbq pits. If we had known this we would have stopped and bought some steaks and made a nice 2 hour stop out... More

This park always goes above and beyond for the lighting up the park and a great place to go skating in winter. In summer one can just relax or fly a kite beautiful park

I just love going to the lake in the park and watching the geese and their babies. One time I went there were 24 babies with one set of parents. I don't know if they were babysitting or all them were theirs but it was fun spending hours watching them, feeding them and just taking pictures.
