“Relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Lots of room to stretch out and enjoy a sunny day. Bring along the portable BBQ and a frisbee and you are set for a day of fun in the sun.

“The country comes to the city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Just a short car ride, bike ride or jog from the heart of downtown Edmonton or the University area is a jewel of a park. Complete with running trails, skating, snow shoeing and cross country skiing in the winter this is a large park that is a tranquil respite from the busy city streets. Many sites for BBQ and picnics and can accommodate large groups for reunions etc. (book ahead with the City of Edmonton to reserve). Some covered picnic sites. A very nice place to go in the spring to see the many baby geese waddling about.
