Tips

Walk your dog or launch a hot air ballon right here! Buena Vista Park is one of the larger parks in the City of Edmonton. Running from Government House Park to Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park and connected to Hawrelak Park with a pedestrian bridge, it is a great natural park to explore. This walk takes you through a very large off leash area for dogs, and interestingly enough, a hot air ballon launch site in the Great Meadow. The off leash area, except for the pedestrian bridge, is covered by this walking map. Once you leave the parking area you cross into the Great Meadow and the hot air ballon launch area. No balloons on this day, but lots of pets! The gravel paths are wide and well maintained with very little elevation change. The walk on the pedestrian bridge is not to be missed as it provides some great views of the river valley. On the way back, you can walk along the gravel path and back to the parking lot or walk along the riverbank. The walk along the river is a much nicer and relaxing stroll. You will pass the boathouse for the Edmonton Whitewater Paddlers. The Club is a registered non-profit society formed in 1973 for the purpose of promoting canoe and kayak paddling for recreation and competition. Make sure you check out their website!

-Bring your dog for a long walk and a chance to meet some new friends.

We love walking our dog here on the trail by the river. Bikes are not allowed on this particular trail which makes for a relaxing time. We take a short loop back through the big field area, so our dog gets to socialize and run with other dogs. There are trails on the other side of the fields through the woods that are beautiful to walk along as well. My husband and I are not in the best of health, so these trails are perfect for our needs. There are plenty of benches to rest at if necessary. There are places we haven't been to in the park yet, like the bridge, but we are hopeful that our health will improve enough to allow us to get there one day. This is one of our favorite parks in the city.
