If you’re looking for the perfect spot to admire the river valley, then Louise McKinney Park is the right destination. Events that take place in the river valley during the summer time are often very visible from the park. Throughout the summer months, you can also see the Edmonton Queen riverboat - where it comes in and out from its dock.
In July, you can enjoy watching part of the sourdough raft races from your perch in the park. The dragon boat festival also takes place in the river valley and is visible from the park. On the evening of Canada Day, the park is the place to be, because it offers an unparalleled view of the fireworks. Why not spend a day in the park with a picnic and then save yourself a spot for the evening festivities?! The space is limited, so getting there extra early would likely be in your favour. That way, you can fully enjoy everything that the park has to offer.
The Louise McKinney Park offers cycling, running and walking trails. Part of the river valley trails system, the park lies on the northern banks of the North Saskatchewan River. It’s a very beautiful spot, particularly in the summer and fall months. Many trees are scattered throughout the area offering shade for those wishing to enjoy a picnic while relishing the scenery.
