Visit William Hawrelak Park for a tranquil retreat to nature. Sitting in a river valley, the green fields stretch out over 68 hectares (168 acres), providing a sense of peaceful seclusion even in the city's most popular park. Meander your way around the lake trail and pick a leafy spot to relax at one of the many picnic sites. Bring your own food to barbecue alongside excellent views; then, depending on the season, you can rent a paddleboat or ice skates to get onto the lake for some fun. The park's amphitheater attracts many festivals and shows throughout the year. Onsite facilities include indoor restrooms and food concessions in the main pavilion. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Edmonton holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the William Hawrelak Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Very pleasant park. I was there for the Heritage festival, which was excellent. More than 80 countries represented. Lots of good food. The park has peddle boats, kayaks and lots of green area. It also has a play ground for the kiddos, BBQ area, washroom facilities, a nice shade area with gazebo, and lots of trees.
It's a very big , beautiful and well maintained park . Its size and location makes it the best place to have the Heritage Festival. There are many birds like ducks, geese, gulls etc with their young ones enjoying nature. There is a boat Rental inside the park. It's a nice place to go with your family. During the Heritage Festival its packed with people, food,entertainment, and cultural beauty, cuisine and products from different countries around the world.
