Nestled within a residential community, Gallagher Park has something for each member of your family. Situated just above the river valley, across the street from the 1912 era Bennett School and Environmental Education Centre, the park is fun all season round. Whether you like to hike, ski, attend the Edmonton Folk Music Festival or just relax, the park won’t disappoint!
Summer at Gallagher
Stroll through acres of green, banded by aspen and birch. Trails wind through the lower part of the park or take your children to the brightly coloured playground. There are three different levels available. Swings and slides can be used by preschoolers and elementary aged children. There are also climbing bars. Older children will benefit from the basketball hoop. Parents can watch the play from comfortable benches. The shiny blue railing surrounding the park gives it a festive feel.
Winter in the Park
There’s even more to do at Gallagher Park in winter. Toboggan down the steep hills. There’s plenty of room for everyone! Just beside is the ski hill, the Edmonton Ski Club makes its home here. At the front of the park is the Cloverdale Community League and Hall where you can find everything from CPR classes to dances. Behind the hall is the outdoor hockey rink where you can learn with an instructor or just free skate. Gallagher Park truly makes this neighbourhood a home.
Note: - There is no chair lift at the ski hill (which is called Connors Hill). It has a T-bar and a rope tow.
