Hiking Rundle Park is just one of the many things you can do here. We suggest planning a half to full day here with your family to take advantage of what the park has to offer. You can get on the water, play mini golf or horseshoes, plan a picnic, and even play field sports. The hike itself circumnavigates the park from the north, creating a counterclockwise loop.

Rundle Park Trail Description

Rundle Park Trail is a great loop trail in the heart of the city. It is a short trip with almost no elevation gain. The park is host to many amenities, which can mean that there is a higher number of visitors than some other areas in the city. Watch for multiple modes of transit on the trail as this is a multi-use area, and you may encounter cyclists moving at high speeds.

The park is a great choice for groups wanting to spend a half day or more. There are plenty of picnic sites, activities, playgrounds, and fields here to fulfill your needs. When looking for fresh air and green space, this is an excellent destination.

From the parking area, find trail signs for the Rundle Park Trail, also known as Rundle Activity Park. Find the beginning of the trail at the southwest corner of the parking area, taking a right out of the lot. You will travel in a counterclockwise direction on this route.

After 2297ft, you will come across the ACT Aquatic and Recreation Centre on your right. Stay left and enjoy a small detour to a pond here. There is a playground here as well if you are looking to take a break. Continue onwards on the main trail and come to another small detour to a larger pond on your left. There is an out and back of roughly 328ft to the edge of the pond.

Come to a trail junction and turn left, contouring the southeastern edge of the next large water feature. Stay on this main trail for 1312ft, passing a few small junctions before turning left to head south towards the North Saskatchewan River. In 328ft, you will join the main riverside trail and begin hiking back eastbound.

Follow the main path here as you curve along the river’s edge back to the parking lot where you began. The Rundle Park is equipped with many activity options including horseshoes, mini golf, playgrounds, soccer fields, tennis courts, disc golf, beach volleyball, many picnic sites, and a paddling centre.
