      Gold Bar Park is located on the south bank of the river at the end of 50 Street. The park is named after the Gold Bar community it is adjacent to. The community was named after the gravel bars that extend into the North Saskatchewan River where prospectors would pan for gold in the late 1800s. Along with an off-leash area and picnic sites, the park might be best known for its numerous cross-country ski trails in the winter.
