Located 6 km south of town (follow 63rd street south) along the beautiful McLeod River, Willmore Park offers an extensive multiple-use trail system, scenic views, day-use, group-use, overnight camping facilities, and a great tobogganing hill.
Our 12.75 km loop trail system is excellent for short walks, longer hikes or mountain biking. The trails offer a nice mix of rolling terrain, short uphills and intermediate downhills through old growth mixed-wood forest along the McLeod River.
The park offers 41 non-serviced auto access campsites and one large backcountry campsite. Campsites and group use areas can be booked by reservation. Potable water, firepits and firewood are supplied.

It is important to keep in mind when visiting Willmore Park that you 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.
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.
