Mill Woods Park or Mill Woods Sport Park is a large multi-recreational park located in the center of Mill Woods, Edmonton, just to the west of Mill Woods Town Centre. It serves as the school fields for both Holy Trinity and J Percy Page High Schools.

The park features picnic sites, water playground, small lake, paved walkways, sports field, and a skate park.[1] It is also home to the Mill Woods Canada Day events with various musical performances, petting zoos, hay rides and other activities, with about 50,000 people in attendance each year.[2][3][4] During the winter it becomes a popular spot for skiing and sledding.

The Mill Woods Recreation Centre which is in between the two schools has an indoor swimming pool, an exercise room, and two NHL-sized hockey rinks.[5]
