William Hawrelak Park

Description

William Hawrelak Park offers a balance between groomed green spaces for recreation and green space for natural vegetation that protects the river and provides habitat for native plants and animals.
The park is closed to vehicle traffic during major events such as Heritage Days, sporting events or Earth Day, when park-and-ride arrangements are in effect.

Before Keillor Road slumped into the river, horse riders from the Whitemud Equine Centre used the horse trail near the river (Walks B and C). On Walk B you may see a few red-coloured pipes scattered in the lower hillside; they are slope indicator pipes used to measure ground water.
