It is all good fun, and the park is near the river in the southwestern part of the city.

Yet it feels like a quiet and private suburban area, with leafy trees along the main road lending a laid-back atmosphere. Just a couple of blocks away lies the colonial-style Alberta Legislature Building, with its beautiful grounds an ideal place to relax at any time of the year.
