In 2021, Hermitage Park will be rehabilitated to ensure Edmontonians can continue to enjoy this valued asset for many years to come.

Project Update - September 2021

Paving at the main entrance is tentatively booked for the week of September 20, depending on the weather. The road is tentatively booked to be completely closed in mid-September for a few days and then reopened with partial access during the paving. With weather permitting paving should be completed later that weekend and the access to the park will be back to normal.

Project Overview

Hermitage Park is located in the northeast end of the city and is an important part of Edmonton’s river valley. The park is filled with natural trails, a large off-leash dog area and picnic sites. This park provides users a variety of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.      

In 2021, the City will rehabilitate the park roads, parking lot and entry and wayfinding signage to extend the life cycle of the park infrastructure and provide citizens the ability to continue to enjoy the park site for many years to come.

The purpose of this project is to replace the aging park infrastructure that has deteriorated over time due to heavy usage and weathering. The park has been identified as in poor condition and in need of repair and replacement.

The Hermitage area attracts a high volume of users; therefore keeping the City asset in good repair contributes to a safe public space that supports the goal of a healthy city.
