Great if you like the outdoors

A great park, really well maintained, small lake with ducks and geese as well as lots of picnic lots. A great place for an afternoon outdoors!

It's not a very large park, but with a lot of charm! It has a little lake, a playground for kids and is excellent for walking and cycling! Just watch out for the geese, there tend to be a lot of them. They have great picknick areas, and check dates for special events at the park.

What a great park - if you want activity - this is the place to be - tons of place to run - play sports - do photography - hike around - skate in the winter. If you want to picnic - there are large areas for picnics and even smaller more private sites available. If you just need a... More

Symphony under the sky is a wonderful event featuring the Edmonton symphony. The main problem at the park is parking. Get there very early and be prepared for a traffic jam after the event. There is park and ride at the U of A Windsor car park . Great event especially during a nice evening.

Excellent venue that hosts many events every year. This is a very large park and it is rare that a single event uses everything. I do wish that it had more disperse drink offerings in the heat. Bring your own food and water. When there are large events it is often hard to get near a drink or food.
