Willmore Park is located south of Edson on the
McLeod River. When traveling west through town
turn left onto 63 Street, cross the eastbound highway
and continue south 4 km along the gravel secondary
road (RR174). Turn left on Twp. Rd 525A and travel
two kilometers to the Willmore Park gate. When
traveling east into town along Highway 16, look for
the brown Willmore Park sign.
Willmore Park is a gem to the Town of Edson and
local area, and a wonderful stop over for those
traveling through the Yellowhead Region.
Willmore Park offers an extensive multiple use
trail system including hiking, walking, and mountain
biking with more bike trails being added, and plans
for a Bike Park underway. It also boasts scenic views,
day use, group use, overnight and back country
camping facilities, tobogganing hill and boat launch.


CAMPING AND GROUP USE
The park offers 41 non-service auto-access campsites and one large backcountry
campsite. Campsite and group use areas can be booked by reservation. Potable water,
firepits and firewood are supplied.
SEASONAL FUN
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.
EXPERIENCE THE TRAILS
The 12.75km 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.
WILDLIFE WATCHING
The park is home to many wildlife including mule and white-tailed deer, squirrels and
forest birds.
