This park is a hidden gem in Edmonton. I only discovered it this past summer and fell in love with it! It has everything you could ask for. Quiet space, water, public restrooms and more!

Beautiful park, well maintained, with walking trails and a nice small lake. The water birds enjoy the lake, and I enjoy the birds

Nice park to play frisbee, bring a bbq. Reserve a bbq spot with the city on Edmonton website. Can run around the road (about 2.5Km), many also bike along the trails. Very pretty. Many festivals during the summer, most do not allow dogs (except ones especially for dogs). Check ahead.

Such an enourmous park where you can have great adventures with your family. Spend a long day long outside running, riding your bike or walking. O just sitting reading your favourite book. I highly recommemd to visit it.

The winter skating areas, or the option for a hockey game under the bright blue Alberta sky are inviting..The options to park and start walking, over bridges and onto trails, encourage the love of the outdoors...

Every winter, Edmonton’s William Hawrelak Park hosts an ice castle display. The display is stunningly beautiful! Dress warmly and plan to stay at least an hour - more if you want to take lots of pictures. Be sure to wear good footwear as it’s quite slippery inside. The ice is blue and white, transparent in places and magical when it is lit up with lights which change colour. There are caves and tunnels, as well as ice slides and this year there is an ice fountain and a large ice sculpture of flowers. I am describing the 2020 display - the design changes somewhat each year. The Ice Castles open in January and remain open ( weather permitting) until early March. After touring the Ice Castles you can walk the park trails or skate on the large outdoor skating rinks. The smaller one allows hockey sticks and pucks while the larger one is reserved for skating only.

Summer or winter, this is a great place to visit!
There are several festivals during the summer.
In the winter there is a skating pond maintained around a facility providing snacks and bathrooms.

Every year we attend the Heritage Days Festival here. It's an event to sample delicious food, see creative performances, and celebrate Canada’s multiculturalism. You can enjoy the tastes, smells, sights and sounds from 100 countries and cultures at 73 outdoor pavilions. Free entertainment on more than 25 stages throughout Hawrelak Park as well.

We have also attended other festivities here. In the winter they always have the ice castle.

A HUGE park to bring the family and spend the day too. There are picnic tables and grill pits for day picnics.
