The Emily Murphy Park is known for its proximity to the North Saskatchewan River and its scenic beauty, but perhaps is the best-kept secret in the city for winter sports. Part of the enchanting River Valley, this beautiful park transforms into a winter wonderland, with snow-covered hillocks and plenty of space to go kick-sledding and tobogganing with family. During summer, the park throws open several trails that are used for biking or strolling. There is also a picnic site, a small boat launch system, and a children's playground built into the premises of the park.
There is always something happening in William Hawrelak Park; the Edmonton Heritage Festival and the Symphony Under the Sky are held here.

Spanning over an area of 168.03 acres (68 hectares), the park has good facilities for picnicking and as several well marked trails, ideal for biking, nature walks, and hiking. There's a playground and visitors can also enjoy volleyball here. Cross country skiing is another popular activity at the park.
