River Crossing is a long-term, city-building initiative to transform the central river valley into a vibrant community and special gathering place. It honours the area’s rich and layered history, reconnects neighbourhoods, and celebrates our connections to the river.

Here ancient Indigenous peoples camped and hunted over thousands of years. Here First Nations, Metis and Europeans met to trade. Here settlers established a community that has grown into one of Canada’s largest and most dynamic cities. Here in a place with one of the most layered histories in Western Canada, River Crossing celebrates Edmonton’s fascinating past and promising future. 

Learn about the history of the area, the planning background, River Crossing vision and Heritage Interpretative and business plans.

The River Crossing area is a place that is historically and culturally significant for many people, including Indigenous communities, Edmontonians and Albertans.
