KISS N’ DROP

If you are not able to take a greener route, and dropping off by car is the only option, use one of the 22 “Kiss and Drop” spots outside the park gates at Groat Road.  Please make sure you are in and out quickly to leave room for others.

RIDE YOUR BIKE

The whole family can ride their bikes to Hawrelak Park, lock your bikes in one of the bike lock-ups, and enjoy the Festival worry-free knowing your bikes are nice and secure in our supervised bike lockups. These are manned by our friends at Bike Edmonton, a non profit organization that offers cycling resources. There are two locations, one at the north entrance and one at the south.

There are several pedestrian points of entry to William Hawrelak Park. Along with the main gates, the Park is accessible from a footbridge on the south side from the Valley Zoo, or down the stairs from Groat Road, or via a series of trails that wind their way through the surrounding ravine. Kindly Note: No Dogs Allowed in the Park
