Louise McKinney Riverfront Park

Adjacent to downtown Edmonton and immediately south of the Shaw Conference Centre, this park is the front door to the river valley parks system and gateway to trails throughout the city. The park encompasses 12.9 hectares of land with a 500 metre breathtaking, unobstructed river view.

Thanks to monies received from the Alberta Centennial Legacy Grant, work was completed for the design and construction of the riverfront area. The grant helped build the Riverfront Promenade and Plaza amenity building as well as river access improvements, park signage, and widening of the Trans-Canada Trail.
