The Waterfront Park engagement is closed. We thank all residents, community stakeholders, and Indigenous partners who were part of meaningful discussions and submissions.

Waterfront Park concept design 

The Waterfront Park design is available to view here.

The Waterfront Park covers 6km of Waterfront from the Athabasca Bridge to Horse Pasture Park in Waterways. The design enhances existing natural elements, creates various community gather spaces, improves water access and connectivity to our downtown, and recognizes the region’s Indigenous heritage. 

Help shape the waterfront into a community space for all to enjoy. Engagement opportunities include:

  • Online Survey
  • Phone Survey by calling PULSE at 780-743-7000 or toll-free 1-800-973-9663
  • Virtual Open House - Watch the presentation in the Virtual Open House Recordings section on this page.
  • In-person Open House - Thursday, September 9, 4p.m.-8p.m. Pre-register

Pre-registration is encouraged but not mandatory.

A detailed What We Heard Report of the engagement that occurred in June is available, providing survey results, overall themes, and participation numbers. Some overall themes include representation of Indigenous culture, ability to touch the water, seating, recreational opportunities, and floodplain infrastructure. 

The Waterfront Park is part of the Waterfront Park Revitalization Project including the Snye Point Outdoor Event Space.
