Riverside Park Construction

About The Project

Located on the west side of St. Albert, Riverside is nestled along the Sturgeon River Valley and minutes away from Big Lake and Lois Hole Centennial Provincial Park. Riverside residents have access to acres of lush forest, extensive parklands and walking trails - all just outside their front doors.

The population is expected to see rapid growth and parks are being planned to build the community for now and the future. Riverside Park is the first park planned for construction in the Riverside neighbourhood.

Planning and design for Riverside Park is now complete and includes:

  • Asphalt trail connections through the park and to existing pathways that will connect to the Riverside neighbourhood;
  • Site amenities, including a sliding hill, soccer field and seating nodes;
  • Playground;
  • Landscaping, including tree and shrub planting.

Background

In 2018, the City of St. Albert approved the Riverside Parks Master Plan, which aims to ensure quality and diverse parks and open spaces within the Riverside neighbourhood that will meet the needs of residents, and continue to provide quality of life for all. The Area Structure Plan was amended in March 2020, which altered some planned parks.

To view the planning and participation that took place involving this project, visit the Riverside Parks Planning page.
