Let’s talk about a new riverfront promenade
October 29, 2019

The river valley is one of Edmonton’s greatest assets, a place people have been drawn to and gathered for thousands of years. The City of Edmonton is looking to improve access to and within the river valley, creating enhanced opportunities for ecological connections, recreation, celebration, heritage interpretation and social gathering with a project called the Touch the Water Promenade. 

Edmontonians are invited to participate in this first round of public engagement, to learn more about the project, ask questions and share their vision for this project.

Public Engagement Pop-up Events:

Date: Thursday, October 31
Time: 11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Location: Edmonton Tower Lobby, 10111 104 Avenue NW

Date: Saturday, November 9

Date: Saturday, November 16
Time: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Location: Kinsmen Sports Centre, 9100 Walterdale Hill NW

An online survey will also be available for those who are unable to attend in person, and will be posted to the project webpage in early November 2019. All feedback gathered during this phase of engagement will inform concept design options, which will be shared with the public for further feedback. 

This project will focus on a central stretch of the North Saskatchewan River Valley in two connected areas. One area is adjacent to the Rossdale neighbourhood and the other is upstream on the north shore of the river, along River Valley Road. The Promenade is proposed to extend from Rossdale along the northern bank of the river to Government House Park, west of Groat Road Bridge.
