Route Description for Kinsmen Park Trail
The Kinsmen Park Trail follows a loop around the perimeter of the park, beginning at the Walter Dale Museum. The park features a small water splash park, sports fields, playgrounds, the popular Queen Elizabeth Outdoor Pool, the Kinsmen Sports Centre, and of course, the museum.
From the parking area, follow signs north towards the museum, making your way to the south banks of the North Saskatchewan River. When you reach the water’s edge, you will be granted with an excellent view of the Alberta Legislature building across the water.
