Mill Creek Ravine is located in south Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The end of the ravine opens onto the North Saskatchewan River valley near the west end of Cloverdale on the opposite bank from downtown.
The creek is named after a flour mill that was established by William Bird in 1878. The creek begins in rural sloughs just south and east of Anthony Henday Drive (just south of its junction with Highway 14 and to the south-east of the Meadows community), and flows northward to an outfall near 92 Avenue between the neighborhoods of Strathcona and Bonnie Doon. Large segments of the creek were diverted into culverts during the 1960s and 1970s including a section that runs underneath the Davies/Coronet Industrial areas in the city's south-east, and the lower reaches of the creek, which was diverted to a tunnel and concrete outfall structure several meters above the North Saskatchewan River. The outfall emerges on the East bank of the North Saskatchewan River at approximately 95 Avenue. It is clearly visible from the Cloverdale Bridge. The city has begun public consultations on re-establishing the natural, surface flow ("daylighting") the downstream reach of Mill Creek
The ravine was once home to part of the Edmonton, Yukon & Pacific Railway line. The line ran from the Canadian Pacific line at about 67 Avenue, across 99 Street, and down into Mill Creek Ravine. It went down through the ravine and out across the Low Level Bridge. The railway also served Gainer's meat packing plant, a large scale meat packing facility once located on the western edge of the ravine at 79 Avenue.

  • MY FAVE Off Leash DOG trails are in Mill Creek Ravine South in Edmonton. Park in front of 6736 84th Street NW in the shade, for closest access to off leash trails just down the grassy hill!  more »
  • The trails through the Mill Creek Ravine are a wonderful hidden gem in the middle of the city. You can get down into the trails and lose yourself in nature to refresh/recharge and the pop back up...  more »
  • Living in the area we like to explore new places. This ravine is best for that. It's very long and green and clean. Nice look out and lots of places to park.
  • Excellent for walking dogs and if you catch it at the right time in the spring, the dandelion seeds build up along the trail edges and look like snow.. Really scenic with plenty of easy water front access for hikes and dogs!
