About the Project

Edmonton’s mature neighbourhoods are great places to live and have many treasures including District Activity Parks. These parks serve several neighbourhoods in the larger area and are important for health, wellness and quality of life. They are part of a city-wide park system and support a wide variety of facilities, programs and open space activities.

Glengarry Park, 13340 85 Street, is a District Activity Park located in the Glengarry neighbourhood. The City has completed a master plan to establish a long term vision for this park. It includes a concept plan which was created using input and ideas gathered through public engagement. This plan will be used to shape the park’s future, taking into consideration the interests expressed by the public, use of existing amenities, new amenities and activities, operational requirements and City strategy and policies.
