Muskoseepi Park (Between Hwy 2 Bypass and 100 Ave)

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.
