UPSTREAM IN DEVON
The Town of Devon, Parkland County and Leduc County will offer a warm community welcome in Voyageur Park on Friday. Join us to celebrate all the enhancements to our river valley park system!
Location: Voyageur Park
Date: Friday, September 15
Time: 4 – 8 PM.
Parking: Park & Ride, or Stride & Ride is encouraged, as on-site parking is limited! You can park at the Devon Community Centre (20 Haven Avenue), and the bus will bring you to us, or park at River of Hope Devon Baptist Church (2 Saskatchewan Avenue W), walk to us and a bus will take you back up the hill when you are done.
Here’s the finer details:
Water Lovers – Floating the river might be new to some people, but Voyageur Park has been a popular raft launch for years! It happens all summer long, and RiverFest is no exception. If you want to give it a try, we’ll have rafts on hand to take you to Lions Campground, and busses to get you back to the festival. Lifejackets will be available, but if you have your own, you’re welcome to bring it along.
Land Lovers – Voyageur Park has something for you!
Major Attractions Include:
-Performances by the West Coast Lumberjacks
-Opening of the new mountain bike trails
-The River Valley Trekkers
-Tethered hot air balloon from RE/MAX
-The Ripple Affect project
Other things to do:
Try a new kind of bicycle, watch a mountain bike demo, try geocaching, do a guided tour along the river, or yoga in the park. Take part in the Ripple Affect Project, brought to you by the Town of Devon, the Alberta Chapter of The Wildlife Society, and Alberta Invasive Species Council. Learn about our fish and wildlife, then paint your own fish for the permanent display. Of course there will also be food trucks and kids games and fun selfie opportunities.

Float The River
Compliments of EPCOR, we will have 50 multi-person inflatable rafts on hand, and will launch them all in the first-ever RiverFest Floatilla! Beginning at 4pm, rafts will be launched from the boat launch at Voyageur Park. Once on the water, enjoy a leisurely drift down the North Saskatchewan to Lions Campground!
After you’re back on dry land, you can walk, cycle, or bus back to Voyageur Park.
