The river valley, parks of various sizes, and tableland natural areas are connected through greenways and habitat stepping stones which comprise Edmonton’s open space network. Open spaces include a variety of parks and natural areas and are intentionally planned across the city to connect wildlife and people to nature, recreation, and celebration spaces.

For more information on the policies, plans, technical studies, and management strategies used to support this work, please see the main Natural Areas, Parks and Urban Biodiversity page, and related Natural Area and Parks Planning LDA Technical Studies and Environmental Review Requirements in the River Valley and Ravines pages.
