Get Back to Nature: Gold Bar Park Stream

While Gold Bar Park is an amazing place to explore (largest urban park in Canada!), our favorite spot within it is a shallow stream that empties out into the North Saskatchewan River.

 

We first discovered this fun spot while visiting Rundle Park and seen people along the shore of the river on the other side.  We crossed the pedestrian bridge to Gold Bar Park and followed a narrow path through the trees that came out at the stream.

The girls had fun wading in the water, picking up cool rocks and watching the minnows swim by.

On our second trip back there was a summer recreation group exploring the river shoreline, so we went a bit further back along the stream.  We found a narrow bridge and more trails to explore on our next visit!

There is plenty of parking in Gold Bar Park and also a small parking lot close to the pedestrian bridge on the Rundle Park side.  For detailed trail information, check out the City of Edmonton River Valley Trail Map.
