Warehouse Park is a new park with multi-use green space coming to downtown Edmonton. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2024.
Turning parking lots into paradise! Warehouse Park is a new, signature park coming to the heart of Edmonton in 2025.
Designed for all ages and abilities, the new downtown park will provide space for you to play, be active, relax and gather with friends and neighbours surrounded by trees and a large open green lawn.
The Warehouse Park will cover 1.81 hectares (18,100 square metres or just over 3 NFL football fields) between 106 Street and 108 Street and Jasper Avenue to 102 Avenue.
The vision for this park is an urban oasis and an inclusive, multi-use green space featuring large, open areas that invite citizens and visitors to reflect and explore. This park will serve as a major public amenity for downtown residents, workers and visitors as the downtown population is expected to significantly increase in the next decade. The design of 106 Street from Jasper Avenue to 102 Avenue will be integrated into the scope of work for Warehouse Park.
This project is an important catalyst project identified in the Capital City Downtown Plan, and is to be funded by the Capital City Downtown Community Revitalization Levy.
