“Great park in the centre of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Hawrelak park offers almost everything for visitors who want to enjoy the summer...paddle boats, walking and biking trails, picnic sites with barbecues, concession stands and lovely lake with the ubiquitous Canada Geese. Green, green, green!

“Huge park!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Went to Hawrelak Park last August for the Heritage Days festival.
The park is beautiful, has many treed areas, a lake, washrooms, and an ampitheatre for performances.
A great place to hang out with the family for a day, or attend a festival.

“A good comfortable place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This is a good park for any time of year. They set good ski tracks in the winter, Symphony Under the Sky is awesome, and there are nice trails to walk.

“Hawrelak Park, an Oasis in the City!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

I visit Hawrelak Park frequently and absolutely love the amount of greenery and diversity that it offers, from places to play sports, to skating, to site seeing, to picnicking and more. It is especially lovely in the evening parking with a view of the water and waterfowl. This park is wonderful for all ages and is truly an oasis that seems far removed from the bustle of the City. It is a green haven in the City.
