Parks and Trails

The Town of Devon has no shortage of beautiful parks and recreational facilities for visitors to enjoy. In addition to the river alley trails, the Town currently maintains approximately 10 kms of multi-use paved trails linking neighborhoods that form meandering park-to-park connections.

Voyager Park is a great family park for summer activities and offers easy access to the river and trails. The trail system has way-finding signage along the path highlighting the wildlife you may encounter. Families can enjoy large wide-open areas with plenty of picnic tables and fire pits to enjoy an afternoon picnic, as well as general areas that have expansive play areas for kids and public restrooms. Come find our ‘secret park’, nestled away in among grand trees and shrubbery. Devon is a great place to get away with an easy commute from Edmonton!

Trail Etiquette and Safety

  • Keep right, except when passing or turning left. 
  • Move completely off the trail (to the right) when stopping to avoid a collision. 
  • Yield to make way for less mobile users (strollers, wheelchairs, etc.).
  • Stay alert by being aware of your surroundings and other trail users. 
  • Use caution in blind corners, poor weather conditions and on unfamiliar sections of the trails.
  • Be visible by wearing brightly colored or reflective clothing.
  • Use caution with earphones by keeping the volume low enough to hear others approaching.
  • Preserve the environment by avoiding fragile surfaces and vegetation.
  • Remember that this is a natural environment and be cautious of wildlife, this is their home.
  • Some areas of the natural trails can be steep and slippery, so use care when accessing these areas.
  • Be a responsible pet owner by keeping your pet on a leash and under control
  • Bag dispensers and garbage receptacles are located throughout the trail system.
