I saw the sign…

City parks and trails are the pride of the community and make St. Albert one of the most beautiful cities in Canada. With over 100 parks and approximately 95 km of recreational trails, St. Albert’s extensive park system offers an abundance of space for quiet reflection, play, exercise and picnics in natural surroundings.

To enhance resident and visitor experience, the City of St. Albert’s Recreation and Parks department is in the process of implementing a three-year park signage project. The project started with a review of the City’s extensive park system, which found out-of-date, deteriorating, inconsistent and, in some cases, non-existent signage.

Key elements of the signage project include creation of the park sign design, development of park signage guidelines, development of manufacturing standards and specifications, and installation of signs in a phased approach.

The new features of the signage include park name, park amenities symbols such as washrooms, playgrounds, picnic tables, skating, etc., and identification that shows if the park is on-leash or if it contains an off-leash area.

Installation will begin mid-June and continue to September.
