Excellent place for a walk
Mar 2021 • Solo
This is an excellent place for a walk. About 3km round trip along the river and up the legs of fire stairs and back to the parking lot. Trails are reasonably maintained in the snow and the stairs weren't even slippery. Not a lot of people around so it was a great place for a morning walk.

Almost feels like Jasper
Mar 2021 • Couples
The walking trails that begin at Voyager park are excellent. We love driving in from Edmonton to walk along the river and in the forest here. It feels a little bit like being on a Jasper hike. The following describes a 12km out and back walk. Duration approx 2hr45min. Hills and stairs involved.

Notes:
-Dogs allowed on leash (there are coyotes.)
-Legs of Fire Stairs get you up out of the valley.
-Trail undulates through evergreen mixed forest from there to the golf course and water treatment plant. It’s a bit slippery in winter.
-Go down on the trail (not on the road) towards the water treatment plant, following trail to the rivers edge.
-Often there are set ski tracks on this part of the trail, up through the golf course, and Lions campground if enough snow fall.
-Stay along the river until the end of the campground, then head right. It takes you into a really nice ravine. Stay on the right side in winter as the left is a sloped ice path and not safely passable.
-At the end of the campground there is also an option to go left before entering the ravine, but we found this didn’t allow you back down into the ravine (unless you “skitch” down the steep bank, which is sort of fun for some.)
-Enjoy the exercise of the hills and turn around once you get to the top and see a large field unless you want to head into neighbourhoods.

We haven’t encountered much wildlife on this trail, but have heard coyotes across the river and seen deer tracks. Perhaps if you went earlier in the morning you’d have more luck in this department.

Overall, this is a really nice way to spend the afternoon and get some fresh air and exercise. Lovely in the snow and shady in the hot summer sun.

We hiked from voyager park to the lions campground then up to town and back. The trail is good overall but was a rainy June and there were some very muddy areas. Some of the hiking trails are marked well but some are not as good. Lots of parking and toilet facilities. Also picnic areas available.

A beach within the city limits

Love going to this park! The view is stunning. Minutes from the road, yet feels like miles away... Ideal for family outings and walks with the dog.

Movie in the park
Aug 2018 • Family
Movie in the park was an awesome experience. Brought our chair, snacks and blanket and watched this months feature movie Coco. Voyager park also connects to great hiking trails and access to the river with a boat launch. Fun for the kids to fish, lots of parking and great picnic area and lots of space to run and play.

Nice scenery along the North Saskatchewan River valley. Lots of picnic sites and walking/hiking trails (over 12 kilometers of undulating path with more in the making) some paved, some loam/gravel & rustic on both sides of the bridge. For the non-motorized paddler, late summer/early fall is the best time! I paddled upstream in my kayak 5.2 k. The river is quite placid in this area. It's about a 4-8 hour paddle if you want to go to Edmonton. Swimming is also a great option! Lots of people fishing, gold panning or sluicing. There's even a nudist beach upstream of the bridge! If you brought your golf clubs, Devon has a nice, challenging, 18 hole course, which is surrounded by trees and hiking trails in the valley. There's also a large BMX bike park that looks very challenging! Also a RV Park for those who want to lengthen their stay. For the winter there are x-country ski trails. Contact the Devon Cross-country Ski Club for more info.
