Let’s chat about Franklin & Main Park Project

In March 2020 Council approved the recommendation of the Wood Buffalo Downtown Revitalization Advisory Committee (WBDRAC) to develop a community park at the location of Franklin & Main in downtown Fort McMurray. This infrastructure plays a vital role in continuing to enhance downtown with improvements and opportunities as part of Downtown Revitalization.

The purpose of this public engagement is to gain an understanding of priorities for the park to create a sustainable service for public life. Identifying the overall vision and urban fabric will contribute to the park's design.

The goal of the Franklin & Main Park is to create a destination with exceptional visitor experience. Resident's input is an essential component for the success of the development. We encourage all residents to fill out a short survey to contribute your feedback.
