Buena Vista Park is located on the north bank of the river, adjacent to Sir Wilfred Laurier Park and Hawrelak Park. Buena Vista means “beautiful view” in Spanish and is home to a large off-leash area and numerous multi-use trails. It is also home to Yorath House, the City's newest rental facility, which is available for year-round bookings.
