Grey Nuns White Spruce - Park Planning
The Grey Nuns White Spruce Park (GNWSP) is a unique park that includes the White Spruce Forest, which is a designated Municipal Historic Resource. 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.

Kingsmeade Park - Park Planning
The new Kingsmeade Park is located in the Kingswood neighbourhood along Kingswood Boulevard.
The City gathered input from the community in 2020 and a concept design for Kingsmeade Park was completed. In February 2021, a site amenities survey was conducted to help finalize the park design.
We are happy to announce the completion of St. Albert’s newest community park – Kingsmeade Park in the Kingswood neighbourhood. The park is intended for use in all seasons, and has an incredible playground area, walking trails with interactive play elements, a boarded outdoor rink, multi-sport court area, open spaces for unstructured play, an all-season social hub, and various trees and shrubs to complete the landscaped area.
Two additional pieces of playground equipment (playhouse and teeter totter) are scheduled to be installed in spring/summer 2022.
$2.5M in Social Infrastructure Funding for Kingsmeade Park thanks to the Government of Canada.
