When we completed engagement in the spring of 2022, you told us the following considerations were the most important to you when designing Warehouse Park:
- Safety and security
- Year-round use and activation
- Programming opportunities and amenities
- Pedestrian-friendly and accessible, with plenty of seating
- Expansion of the tree canopy, with a focus on native species
The Project Team has used these considerations, as well as City Policies and Programs and technical requirements, to develop the design for Warehouse Park.
The Warehouse Park will cover 1.47 hectares (roughly 14,700 square metres or just over 2 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 fully funded by the Capital City Downtown Community Revitalization Levy.
