Most people know about Terwillegar dog park but cross the footbridge to Oleskiw River Valley Park, a naturalized flood plain, and you’re on a great multiuse trail- bike, walk, run. The path weaves past John Janzen and Fort Edmonton and connects to William Hawrelak Park...More

I went hiking with my hiking grouping Terwilligar park. A nice scenic place to hike along the river. It is an off leash park, so you can be bothered by dogs. No washroom facilities.

Excellent paved trail to beautiful bridge over river. Shady spots, river access. More seats on the way to the bridge would be super for less mobile people. All dogs on leash would be a good sign.

Went here to walk around and it's not as nice as some other parks in the city. Very open and windy. I bet it'd be nice if you have a dog though because they can just run and run.

I love going to walk or ski at Terwillegar Park! You can go for a long or a short walk/ski. You get to be right by the river. We are so lucky in this amazing city to have such an extensive trail system!! You'll run...More

Off-leash area and very natural setting in the river valley. Not as crowded as other parks. Not as easy to access as some river valley parks.
