On October 11, 2021, the pilot project that permitted alcohol consumption at designated picnic sites concluded. Alcohol consumption in all public parks and picnic spaces is now no longer permitted.
Named after Mayor Cornelius Gallagher, Gallagher Park is located in the Cloverdale Community beside the Edmonton Ski Hill and near the Muttart Conservatory. This park has been home to Edmonton's Folk Music Festival since 1981 and is a fantastic location to have a picnic, go for a bike ride and even ski. It also offers a picturesque view of the City's skyline.
