The Grey Nuns White Spruce Park (GNWSP) is a unique park that includes the White Spruce Forest which is a designated Municipal Historic Resource.
The park is valued for the recreation opportunities it provides and how it connects to St. Albert’s cultural and historic past. With the development of Riverside and increasing use of the GNWSP there is a need to provide better access to the area while ensuring the long-term sustainability of the White Spruce Forest.
About the Project
The City is developing a park plan that will allow the public opportunities to enjoy and learn about the historic and cultural significance of the area while protecting the forest through an appropriate trail system and amenities. Plans include different types of trails, a nature play space, picnic shelter and interpretive areas. This is part of the Red Willow Park West Master Plan, which was completed in 2018.
