Whitemud Park to Hawrelak Park, via Laurier Park
February 20 @ 10:15 am – 3:00 pm MST
An exciting winter hike through the river valley parks with the added bonus of the annual Silver Skate Festival going on at Hawrelak Park (snow sculptures & food pavilions). We scouted it in the 13th & in great shape, albeit a bit icy so trax are recommended. On the 20th it will be a bit colder & maybe some fresh snow.
We’ll meet at Whitemud Park (River Valley Parking lot at the bottom of the hill near the trails, off Fox Drive at Keillor Road) at 10:15 a.m. The hike will start from the parking lot 10:30. The pictures from February 16th, 2020.

Edmonton COVID-19 Updates – Effective December 24, food and drink is not permitted within recreation centres, attractions and arenas that do not have a food service provider. In facilities with food services, food and beverages can be consumed in established areas. Water/sports drinks can be consumed in order to stay hydrated when engaged in physical activity. What this means is that during lunch at the Hawrelak Park pavilions we will need to eat outside. Fortunately, there are now a couple of areas with fire pits for warmth during the Silver Skate Festival.
The current Government of Alberta COVID-19 public health action plan indicates that all COVID-19 public health measures have been lifted. However, WTA group event attendees are encouraged to assess and manage their personal risk.
