Glengarry District Park is being renewed with an anticipated construction start date in summer 2021.

Project Update - April 2021

The Glengarry District Park Renewal Project Team has been busy over the winter months. We are now preparing the detailed design and tender package so we can begin construction later this summer. The list of park amenities that are included will renew and enhance the park for many generations to come.

Construction on the select renewal and growth amenities in Glengarry Park is planned for summer 2021 to summer 2022. The park renewal will focus on the northern portions of the park.

Renewed Park Amenities:

  • 3 new playground pods
  • New spray deck
  • Paved trails
  • Site furnishings (including benches, picnic tables, bike racks and waste bins)
  • Combination tennis-pickleball courts
  • 2 renewed sports fields
  • Ball diamond

Growth Amenities (new features at the park):

  • Dog park area
  • Large playground shade structure
  • Park naturalization
  • Tree planting

About the Project

Edmonton’s mature neighbourhoods are great places to live and have many treasures including District Activity Parks. These parks serve several neighbourhoods in the larger area and are important for health, wellness and quality of life. They are part of a city-wide park system and support a wide variety of facilities, programs and open space activities.

Glengarry Park, 13340 85 Street, is a District Activity Park located in the Glengarry neighbourhood. The City has completed a master plan to establish a long term vision for this park. It includes a concept plan which was created using input and ideas gathered through public engagement. This plan will be used to shape the park’s future, taking into consideration the interests expressed by the public, use of existing amenities, new amenities and activities, operational requirements and City strategy and policies.

Project History

Project Update - December 2020

Thank you to everyone who engaged with us virtually and provided additional feedback on 2 growth park amenities - the skateboard park and mountain bikes skills park. We will be taking the input we received and using it to finalize our design plan (see What We Heard Report). We will share the design plan with the public for feedback in early 2021.

Construction on the renewal amenities in Glengarry Park is planned for summer 2021 to summer 2022 while construction on the growth amenities will happen should funding become available.

Project Update - October 2020

Thank you to everyone who engaged with us virtually and provided feedback on the preliminary design ideas as we adjusted our engagement practices as a result of COVID-19.

Our online survey closed on September 22, 2020. Feedback received from the public, together with technical input, City policies, programs and funding, will inform the Glengarry District Park design. 

In late fall 2020, we will present the design plan for Glengarry District Park, highlight how feedback was used to inform the plan, what elements will occur as part of renewal (2021 construction) and what elements may occur at a later date, as part of growth and when future funding becomes available.

Preliminary Design

Project Update - Spring 2020

Thank you to those that provided feedback during the concept phase to help create the master plan. The Master Plan (12MB) is now complete and will be used to guide the future of the park. The Master Plan includes a Concept Plan which was created using input and ideas gathered through public engagement. 

As part of the 2019-2022 Capital Budget, funds have been allocated to renew portions of the Glengarry District Park. The concept plan that was created as part of the master planning process from 2016 through 2018 will be used as the foundation for preliminary design.

Public engagement sessions will be planned to seek the public’s input and help refine the design.
