Mill Creek Ravine Park, Edmonton

#5 of 27 in Parks in Edmonton
Mill Creek Ravine is located in south Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The end of the ravine opens onto the North Saskatchewan River valley near the west end of Cloverdale on the opposite bank from downtown.
The creek is named after a flour mill that was established by William Bird in 1878. The creek begins in rural sloughs just south and east of Anthony Henday Drive (just south of its junction with Highway 14 and to the south-east of the Meadows community), and flows northward to an outfall near 92 Avenue between the neighborhoods of Strathcona and Bonnie Doon. Large segments of the creek were diverted into culverts during the 1960s and 1970s including a section that runs underneath the Davies/Coronet Industrial areas in the city's south-east, and the lower reaches of the creek, which was diverted to a tunnel and concrete outfall structure several meters above the North Saskatchewan River. The outfall emerges on the East bank of the North Saskatchewan River at approximately 95 Avenue. It is clearly visible from the Cloverdale Bridge. The city has begun public consultations on re-establishing the natural, surface flow ("daylighting") the downstream reach of Mill Creek
The ravine was once home to part of the Edmonton, Yukon & Pacific Railway line. The line ran from the Canadian Pacific line at about 67 Avenue, across 99 Street, and down into Mill Creek Ravine. It went down through the ravine and out across the Low Level Bridge. The railway also served Gainer's meat packing plant, a large scale meat packing facility once located on the western edge of the ravine at 79 Avenue.

  • Mill Creek Ravine Park is a beautiful park that connects numerous neighbourhoods in Edmonton. It connects many neighbourhoods and it's close to trendy bars and restaurants.  more »
  • So pretty here. Many people bring bird seed as the birds will eat from your hand, kids just love it. Parking lot is awful, holes, puddles and definitely one the City should fix.  more »

  • Living in the area we like to explore new places. This ravine is best for that. It's very long and green and clean. Nice look out and lots of places to park.
  • Excellent for walking dogs and if you catch it at the right time in the spring, the dandelion seeds build up along the trail edges and look like snow.. Really scenic with plenty of easy water front access for hikes and dogs!
