Most people know about Terwillegar dog park but cross the footbridge to Oleskiw River Valley Park, a naturalized flood plain, and you’re on a great multiuse trail- bike, walk, run. The path weaves past John Janzen and Fort Edmonton and connects to William Hawrelak Park...More

I went hiking with my hiking grouping Terwilligar park. A nice scenic place to hike along the river. It is an off leash park, so you can be bothered by dogs. No washroom facilities.

Terwillegar Park is an off-leash park but is also a great place to walk, run or cycle even without a dog! It has very little development so when you are in certain parts you feel like you are in the country not in the middle...More

Excellent paved trail to beautiful bridge over river. Shady spots, river access. More seats on the way to the bridge would be super for less mobile people. All dogs on leash would be a good sign.

Even though it is an „off leash“ park within the City of Edmonton, one does not have to have a dog to enjoy this park. The scenery is wonderful, the walks are in excellent condition and there are plenty of people out there enjoying themselves,...More

Went here to walk around and it's not as nice as some other parks in the city. Very open and windy. I bet it'd be nice if you have a dog though because they can just run and run.

I love going to walk or ski at Terwillegar Park! You can go for a long or a short walk/ski. You get to be right by the river. We are so lucky in this amazing city to have such an extensive trail system!! You'll run...More

Off-leash area and very natural setting in the river valley. Not as crowded as other parks. Not as easy to access as some river valley parks.

From the medium-sized parking lot off Rabbit Hill Road, there's a large, fine off-leash area to walk your dog if you have one. It's a big open space, great for having the puppies run around and fetch. But it seems to be intricately connected to...More
