“Nice park, very busy in summer”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

This is a nice little park but it's very busy in summer. I come here because there's geocaches hidden here. (geocaching - high tech treasure hunting using a GPS)
I'm sure I'll be back to geocache someday...

“Busy in summer”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

Laurier Park is a good place to park so you can go somewhere else. It's handy to the river valley trails, the Valley Zoo and the Buena Vista off leash area, but there's really nothing special at the park itself. Just some picnic tables, some grass and a a pleasant location by the river. However, there are also a lot of people who let their dogs wander all over, so be careful where you sit down.

“Ok for walks, but not much to offer otherwise”
Reviewed 4 January 2012

It's my neighbourhood park, and it's ok for walks or picnics with the little ones. The parking is problematic, especially when you have to carry picnic baskets and toddlers

“yeah for the dog park!”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

I do like this dog park and the trails through the river valley that also connects to Hawrelak park. This is especially convenient during Heritage days in August when parking is non-existent at Hawrelak. You can walk for miles and not see many other people which is both good and bad. I'm not sure I would walk there alone without my dogs. Bikes, running and hiking are all welcome but remember you're sharing the trails with the dog walkers too.
