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!

Looking for a place to take a walk and still stay cool during some recent warm weather, we visited this park. A nice easy walk is to amble around the lake and check out the geese and ducks (be aware the geese will hiss at you if you get too close!). Numerous benches allow you to take a break and... More

Heritage Festival is a wonderful event held during the Civic Holiday ( early August ) weekend. There are many other excellent events and festivals held in the park. Maybe soon we will see the...

We were in town for the ITU Triathlon World Championships that were centered at this park. The lake is very nice (but small) and the grounds well appointed. A nice place to visit if you are in town.

What a lovely park. The lake is fantastic and has washrooms close by. The park is not far from the river walk and is a good destination to bike to. There are many trails for walkers and joggers and seating an d barbecue areas too. We loved it. It is now iconic having held the World Triathlon Championships there.
