biggest drawback is inability to park. Public transit is the way to go but it is time consuming. This is particularly difficult in winter months.

I always enjoyed coming to this park and whatever event that is hosted here. There is plenty of fresh air space and lots of places to walk, cycle, play ball, and run around, and to enjoy nature at its finest.

What’s more Canadian than skating on an outdoor rink? Not much! Beautiful landscapes to view as you skate across a frozen lake. If you bring your own skates it’s absolutely free. However, rentals are fairly cheap. Do some laps and grab a hot chocolate and...More

Beautiful park, wonderful lake, plenty of space to host your weekend bbq social or to get lost alone with nature on weekday afternoons. Ice castles in Winter are another draw that is on my wish list to visit.

We had a lovely walk around the lake. Lots of birds to enjoy. We take our dog for a long walk around the park to the dog park across the river. Lots of other dogs to enjoy.... Very people friendly place.

This park is perfect for strolling around, jogging or attending one of the many organised events. You can bbq here and walk to the river. Great outdoor music concerts in the summer, or cross country skiing in winter, I always check out what's happening here.

Dogs and pets are welcome but have to remain on the leash. There is an off-leach area to the south of the park. Please google "Edmonton Off Leash" for a map of off-leash locations in Edmonton.

No bike rentals. They often do 5 km charity walks within the park which are two laps of the park so to go around once is approximately 2.5 kms
