This park gives the user so many options. This year I came for a couple of hikes, went to symphony under the stars, and visited the ice castle. Great place to visit with a family with a huge variety of things to do and events.

Regardless of the season, this is a massive park in which you can spend hours just wondering around enjoying the outside. There are festivals, concerts and just tons of activities happening all the time.

This is just a wonderful place all year around. During the warm period, great for relaxing, walking and enjoying the weather. During the winter, wonderful for skating and having some hot chocolate.

I love to come here in the spring when all the baby ducks and geese are swimming around. You will see tiny children toddling after them while stumbling along is all so precious and apart of Edmontons enchanted park spaces.

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
