This park is easily accessible and has tons of parking. It has groomed trails in the winter and we love cross-country skiing there - it is great for the beginner - maybe a bit boring for an experienced skier. we also like walking around the park in the summer

This park is beautiful and a great BBQ spot or even a place to go to toss a ball or hang out with some friends. There's tons of parking and has both large areas where you can meet people and secluded areas where you can congregate with a big group. We love going here in the winter to ice skate.... More

There are picnic spots with BBQ grills throughout , washroom/shelters in the park ( indoor plumbing ) walking/biking paths and beautiful open fields for games of football, frisbee or any other activity.

This park is well situated in the heart of the city. There is plenty of parking and bar-b-q spots for everyone to share. This place is excellent for family gathering such as picnics and barbeques. kids can feed the ducks and play ball . The scenery is beautiful throughout and a great place to take pictures.

Whether it be for a leisurely stroll or taking in fun winter festivals or events, Hawrelak Park is a great place for friends, couples and families. I especially enjoy skating on the pond and had the chance to attend Silver Skate this year.
