Wetaskiwin's By-the-Lake Park is a superb day-use facility featuring a 2.5-kilometre paved trail surrounding a 17 acre man-made lake. As you walk around the park, you will find informative signage on the various plants and wildlife that call the area home. A large picnic area makes this an ideal spot to spend a summer afternoon with family and friends and the lake is stocked with fish for summer and winter fishing (Alberta Sport Fishing Regulations must be followed). During the long-winter months you can enjoy cross-country skiing, ice skating, tobogganing, even a pick-up game of pond-hockey.


Diamond Jubilee Park
50 Avenue & 54 Street
Located in the downtown core, this beautiful park is a great place to relax or go for a short stroll. Jubilee Park had become the "meeting place" every spring during High School Graduation where families and friends arrive to take photos and exchange congratulations.

The cenotaph at the center of Diamond Jubilee Park is a memorial to "Fallen Comrades" in the Canadian forces. The park also hosts a plaque that honours the efforts of the two missionaries, Father Lacombe and Reverend McDougal, who worked to keep the peace and foster understanding in light of the Louis Riel Rebellion.


Ashoro Park
54 Street & 43 Avenue
The Wetaskiwin Ashoro Friendship Park was created in honour of the 20-year relationship between two sister cities Ashoro, Japan, and the City of Wetaskiwin. Nestled in a residential area, the park has a Japanese influence and is a great place to go for a quiet stroll and spend some time relaxing while enjoying the outdoors.
