“Great place to unplug...”

MacDonald Island Park

Attraction details
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Most people go to MacDonald Island Park to get away from the winter weather and enjoy the great workout facilities and pools. But what most people ignore is that the establishment has an amazing catering services team. The food at the NAABA show this past week was outstanding.

This place is the best in Fort McMurray with it's water park, slides and Olympic size pool. The public library is there as well, they also have gyms and exercise gyms access with a day pass. This center offers concerts, plays, parties... you name it it's an all out center!!

My wife and I were in Fort McMurray just for the day. We didn't know what to do, so we went to the Park. This is an amazing place, regardless of the time of year. I was really impressed with this facility and have never seen anything like it in any city in the US. I would highly recommend going to this facility. Take a swim suit, exercise clothes, running shoes and an extra change of clothes for when you are leaving.

I was so impressed with the people also. As soon as people realized I was a tourist, they introduced me to the sport of curling, ice skating and showed me around the facility. I really can't say enough positive things. There is exercise equipment everywhere you look. The water park is fantastic and exciting! There is also a wonderful spa for relaxation after the excitement of the water.

You could easily spend an entire day at this facility. It is a great place to go to get the "culture and attitude" of Fort McMurray.
