The Snye Point Outdoor Event Space 

Public engagement was completed in March 2021. The final concept design was approved by the Wood Buffalo Waterfront Advisory Committee in December 2021.

To ensure that the Waterfront Park Revitalization Project remains within a responsible budget, Administration has cancelled the tender for the Snye Point Outdoor Event Space. The decision to cancel the tender has been made because the projected cost to complete this work was much higher than what was initially budgeted. The termination of this tender does not mean that the work on the Waterfront Park Revitalization Project is cancelled.

The Snye Point Outdoor Event Space project will be reviewed and considered as part of the development of the 2023 Budget Development Process. Administration will ensure that a future concept for the Snye Point Outdoor Event Space will be cost efficient and fiscally responsible.

The public engagement from many partners, along with the Indigenous Sharing Circles and knowledge will inform future versions of the Snye Point Outdoor Event Space, however the specific amenities or details may vary from the original concept. 


August 2021 - Final Conceptual Design is here

The Snye Point Outdoor Event Space final conceptual design will include features such as pedestrian pathways, welcome circles, natural play, public washroom, tipi feature, additional parking, vendor opportunities, new docks, and a toboggan hill. The space is designed to be an inclusive four-season waterfront, emphasizing natural elements while recognizing the region’s culture and heritage. 

Engagement occurred this past March with residents, stakeholders, and Indigenous Partners. A detailed What We Heard Report can be found here, outlining the overall themes heard throughout engagement. The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo appreciates participants feedback and shaping our waterfront.


March 2021 - Engagement has been closed

We thank all residents, community stakeholders, and Indigenous partners who were part of meaningful discussions and submissions. Construction timelines will be provided as they become available.

    The RMWB’s Waterfront Park Revitalization Project will be designed as a year-round interactive facility for residents and visitors alike. As a destination for cultural and heritage recognition, the Waterfront Park will also serve as an access point for recreational opportunities and connecting to nature in the heart of our region.

    The overall project will include design and construction of the year-round Snye Point Outdoor Event Space, as well as designing Waterfront Park which will cover the 6 km of waterfront from the Athabasca Bridge to Horse Pasture Park in Waterways.

    Currently we are focusing on the Snye Point Outdoor Event Space. Residents are encouraged to provide feedback on two concept designs that have been developed.

    Check out the concepts and sketches here, and let us know what you think!

    The Snye Point Outdoor Event Space public engagement has concluded. We thank residents, Indigenous partners, and stakeholders for their instrumental perspective on this community project. A final design will be shared publicly in the coming weeks.
