Initial Stakeholder ConsultationRiver Access Strategy Facilitated Sessions Overview
The North Saskatchewan River valley is one of North America’s largest urban parks. Stewardship of this resource is important to Edmontonians. Access to the river and its valley is essential to Edmonton’s quality of life.
Within Edmonton's city limits, the banks of the North Saskatchewan River include many parks, natural areas, trails, and amenities including boating facilities, launches, hand launches and docks. These features are owned by the City and designed for use by the public, partner groups and Emergency Response.
The River Access Strategy will establish guiding principles and guidelines to inform the development and location of all river-based infrastructure and supporting amenities. Its goal will be to balance environmental stewardship while encouraging a broader appreciation for activities on or near the river.
The Guiding Principles Survey, which closed July 25, 2014, gathered input from river users and other stakeholders, and will help determine the guiding principles of the overall strategy.
