Dermott District Park Renewal

* Formerly Bonnie Doon Campus Park

Located in a mature neighbourhood on the southeast corner of 90 Avenue and 83 Street, the Dermott District Park faces the challenge of addressing community needs with infrastructure beyond its expected lifecycle.  The park is a 7.60 hectare district activity park in the Idylwylde Community that supports many amenities including: Vimy Ridge Academy, Idylwylde School Building, Bonnie Doon Leisure Centre, tennis courts, an outdoor shale running track and several sports fields.

Project Overview

The City of Edmonton, Edmonton Public School Board and the community have been exploring the current use and future recreation needs at the Dermott District since 2009. The site concept plan included a review of existing site amenities and feedback from stakeholders and the community on their recreation needs that integrates the existing leisure centre, Vimy Ridge Academy and tennis courts with new elements including: a twin arena, LRT line and community park amenities.  The site concept plan proposes new parking and access off 83 Street to minimize traffic and parking on 81 Street.

The development of a park master plan that will provide more details required to address community needs and aging infrastructure. The District Activity Park Renewal Program provides a long term strategic approach to renew district activity parks and identifies Dermott District Park as a priority for the 10-Year Capital Investment Agenda and 4-Year Capital Budget 2015-2018.
