“It takes all sorts...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014

Now here is a truly multifaceted park! It contains the Sunridge Ski Area to the north end of the park, and at the south end there is apparently a meeting/hookup area for gay men at the southern end of the park. I write this with some confidence as I wandered into it by accident one day, then asked around afterwards and found my suspicions confirmed.

The park itself has some nice features but is a little neglected and a number of the buildings are shuttered and apparently ready for the bulldozer. THe views towards downtown Edmonton are really nice though, and you can have a good wander down by the riverside too.

It doesn't look too well patrolled so I'd be careful if alone in the evenings, but otherwise you should be OK. The nicer park is directly over the river called Rundle Park; might be better off there...
