This is one of the nicest walks in or around Grande Prairie. The views across the Bear Creek Reservoir to various landmark buildings give the park a picturesque quality reminiscent of great English parks or New York’s Central Park.
Start the walk at the Visitor Centre just off the Hwy 2 Bypass. Follow the paved trails along the eastern side of the reservoir then cross Bear Creek at the bridge to the Museum and Heritage Village. Walk between the Heritage Village and the creek until you regain the paved trail. Follow the trail past the College and through the Rotary Campground to the bridge back to the Visitor Centre and Sundail.
Near Wembley Alberta is the Pipestone Creek Park proposed home of the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum (River of Death Discovery Dinosaur Museum). There are 2 short walks here: one near the day use area and campground and the other up the road to the dinosaur dig. For more information visit the Pipestone Creek Park website.
