The river valley is a place people have been drawn to and gathered at since time immemorial. The City is exploring ways to improve access to the central river valley with the Touch the Water Promenade project. If the project moves forward, it would include opportunities to celebrate heritage, encourage recreation and connect people with nature.
Project Update - April 2021
The What We Heard report from Stage 2 of the Touch the Water Promenade’s public engagement is now available. We thank everyone who provided feedback on the last phase of engagement in November 2020 that helped to shape this report.
Your input helped us to refine, adjust and improve the concept design options in order to develop one preferred concept design.
The Touch the Water Promenade project is currently in the planning and design stages and is not funded for construction. The planning and engagement we do now will ensure that we have a blueprint for future development that reflects a shared vision for this very special area.
Public and Indigenous engagement in Stage 3 will include the preliminary design for the Rossdale area, and more specifically, the site area surrounding the former Rossdale Power Plant. The next stage of engagement will take place in summer 2021.
