William Hawrelak Park (originally Mayfair Park) is a 68 hectare park in the river valley featuring a 5 hectare lake and open grassy areas. The park hosts several major festivals and events throughout the year and is a fantastic location for all Edmontonians and visitors to explore.

William Hawrelak Park Rehabilitation Project

The City is looking to develop a 10-year rehabilitation plan to ensure the park continues to serve the recreational and event needs of Edmontonians. This plan will address the aging park infrastructure that requires repair, replacement or upgrades.
