LocationRiver Valley Mayfair, Edmonton, Canada

William Hawrelak Park is a park in Edmonton, Alberta. Formerly known as Mayfair Park, Mayfair Park was initially going to be developed into a 500 lot subdivision, however when the Strathcona Land Syndicate forfeited their taxes the city obtained the title for the land in 1922. This land laid unused until 1954, when current Mayor William Hawrelak proposed to create a 350-acre riverside park in this area as it would “fit into the overall park development of the City along the lines of the zoo, and the golf courses and other picnic areas”. The digging of the man-made lakes began in 1959 and later was completed in 1964 but had few facilities. The official opening day of Mayfair Park was July 1, 1967. It was renamed in 1982 for William Hawrelak, who died in office in 1975 while serving as mayor of Edmonton.
