As of May 28, 2021, alcohol consumption is permitted at designated picnic sites in select River Valley parks. Look for signage permitting consumption.

Adjacent to downtown Edmonton and immediately south of the Shaw Conference Centre, this park is the front door to the river valley parks system and gateway to trails throughout the city. The park encompasses 12.9 hectares of land with a 500-metre breathtaking, unobstructed river view. The park is named after Louise Crummy McKinney.
