    It's been almost 10 years since my last visit, and it was so wonderful. The entire facility and plants are immaculately maintained. There is something magical about the place. Even if you don't appreciate plants you will be amazed at how lovely this place will make you feel.

    Beautiful fall day to visit this park. Did a quick 1.5 km loop walk around the lake. The fall colours are in full. Drove around the park. Really nice. Looks like a great place to camp or picnic.

    If you have an afternoon to walk the dogs, or want to stretch a bike ride (cyclo, MTB or road), there are options for all.

    We hit up the riverside trail, playground, and pedal boats, and packed a picnic lunch. The facilities are generally well maintained, though a few things could use some attention. There is enough to do here that you can make a day of it as a family.

    My son’s grade 2 class went on a field trip here and it was a lot of fun. Our guide Tiff was amazing and patient with all the kids. She made learning fun. My son esp loved finding water bugs in the pond. I even learnt a few new things it was a great time despite the wind.

    Laurier Park is great for walking by the river also excellent for BBQ's with picnic tables available, there are great bike trails and you are close to Edmonton Zoo if your visiting with children or if you live in the city make a day in the Park and visit to the Zoo. You will enjoy the sights of the river but also shade on a hot sunny day. If you have a dog you are close to off leash park area as well. Lots of free parking available. ENJOY the outdoors.

    My grandson adn I were trying to go to another place but we found the Treehouse. I liked it because it was a manageable size, not too busy and relatively safe for little people. interesting play areas included climbing areas, and mazes. nice place.

    Large place, kids had fun! Multiple levels of padded areas. Airball gun was a big hit! Multiply sides - the red slides are steep but my almost 4 yr old went down no prob. There is a very large metal side for bigger kids ( 7 and up I'd say).

    Down side - NOT alot to do for 1-2 year olds. I've been to Indoor play placws that had way more interactive stuff and areas for them.

    Good for ages 3 to 12.

    I live in Edmonton so I like to visit this park whenever I feel like going away from the chaotic life. It has a nice water-side site where you can enjoy the beautiful nature. It has stairs as well as easy trails to walk. You can enjoy your cardio climbing those stairs or walking through the trails.

    Kyla, Joaquin, and the rest of the team were great hosts for our Sloth feeding experience today. Signing up to feed Mandy was well worth the investment and recommend you pursue this swiftly if interested as opportunities may dwindle the older she gets.

    After the feeding experience, also had a chance to interact with other animals and the staff were both knowledgeable and patient with us guests.

    This was a fun outing. We followed our GPS to get there. This attraction is in a lovely neighborhood. At first we were heading inside the park, but then we encountered a lot of mud. We decided to go the other way. That was a good decision, as we saw “The End of the World” in all its splendor. The river kept on going.

    In my head I could visualize that this would be the end of the world, figuratively. We kept on walking and enjoyed the view.
