William Hawrelak Park
There is always something happening in William Hawrelak Park; the Edmonton Heritage Festival and the Symphony Under the Sky are held here. When there are no scheduled events or festivals, take a paddle-boat out on the man-made lake or enjoy it as an outdoor skating rink in the winter with heated changing facilities nearby. It is part of the city's group of river valley parks, which form the largest area of urban parkland in North America today. Check the website to find out how to book picnic sites.
