Seasonal Fun:
On hot summer days the sandy beaches of the McLeod River are a very popular spot to head for a swim or soak up the sun. In winter, the park is a popular destination for families and friends as it offers a spectacular tobogganing hill for sledding and all our winter fun. On a good snow year the trails also offer opportunities to snowshoe and cross-country ski.

Wildlife Watching:
The park is home to many wildlife including mule and white-tailed deer, squirrels and forest birds. It is important to keep in mind when visiting Willmore Park that your are in bear country. When using the trail system make plenty of noise, especially when walking near streams or coming around corners. Remember to always be aware of your surroundings.

Park Trails Work

Work on the Willmore Park trails continues. The Edson Cycling Association has been working hard on the trail system and they now have their first section complete.

Section 1 on 'Raspberry Stinger' is officially open and they hope to finish section 2 for the end of October.

It takes a huge volunteer effort and almost 400 hours were spent on this section alone. Thank you for all of your hard work!
