Louise McKinney Park - Urban Beach
City Council is interested in the possibility of an urban beach at Louise McKinney Park. The park already has a number of elements that complement an urban beach including food service, washrooms, and views of the river. Because the park is centrally located it is accessible via walking, cycling, transit and vehicle.
An urban beach, a new type of amenity to Edmonton’s central river valley, would increase activities in Louise McKinney Park during the day and into the evening.

An online survey was available between September and November to help gauge the level of public support for an urban beach at Louise McKinney Park. The results will be included in the report to City Council in March 2014.
Work on developing a concept drawing for the proposed urban beach based on public survey and feedback collected through consultations held in June and July 2013.

Public Survey, Presentation & Feedback Sessions
Project information was shared, and public feedback was collected at multiple events and via an online survey. Information collected will inform the design of the proposed urban beach at Louise McKinney Park.
