Dog walk paradise

I think it's great the city has designated such a beautiful space for dogs to play and owners to walk in nature. There are PLENTY of other trails / parks in the city that are on leash or no pets allowed. Kudos to the city for allowing dogs this (miniscule in comparison) space and shame on the people who are...

If you do, then go here. If you don't like dogs -- all dogs including wet ones coming of the river and big ones running free like wild horses then stay away. This goes for walkers and cyclists -- if you can't handle dogs running everywhere then go elsewhere. This is a gem in Edmonton's river valley (which is full... More

The park is well laid out and offers various trails to satisfy your trek through the river valley. You can stop by the river and watch puppies frolicking in the water, chasing sticks, balls, or rocks. The path through the trees offers bird watchers a chance to experience birds not seen often in the urban area and there is a... More

In a bend of the river is Terwillegar Paark. It has a number of trails (most thankfully not paved) so you can walk as far as you want. I think the full loop is about 5 k; most people hang around the meadow near the parking lot so it's gets a lot less busy the further you go away from... More

stopped at this park on our way through Edmonton. just wanted to let the dog run for a while after being stuck in the car for a road trip. it's a nice park. friendly people and dogs. looks like some construction is going on. my only recommendation is better stroller and wheelchair accessible paths.

If you want off leash dog park, this is THE place to go. Miles and miles of trails and friendly dog walkers on them. Lots of exercise, things to sniff and check out for the dogs, they will never get bored here. Great beach in the summer with very shallow waters for the dogs to play in. Bring towels!! Always...

A nice hour long walk bordering the river. Great bike trails. Food trucks and a dog washing station.

Lots of room for your dogs to roam, I think about 450 acres. right on the Saskatchewan river. Best off-leash park in Edmonton
