Glengarry District Park is being renewed with a construction start date in September 2021.

Project Update - January 2022

Construction Update

Construction began in September 2021 and focused on the east side of the park for the soccer field and baseball diamond renewal. All underground work in these sports fields is complete. Laying of the soccer field sod will be completed in spring 2022 and the field will be open for use once the sod has been established.

As of mid-November 2021, construction work stopped for the winter break. Work will resume once the weather allows in the spring. 

In 2022, construction will focus on the north side of the park. The walking trails will be renewed and new playground and spray park structures will be installed. Other park amenities including furniture will also be installed. New pickleball courts will be added at the tennis court area.

Tree Removals

Tree removals on the south side of the park have been completed. Removals were necessary to meet the required safety setbacks for the soccer fields and the ball diamond. Replacement trees were planted in October 2021.

Tree removals on the north side of the park will be completed in early spring. Approximately 25 trees will be affected. However, we are taking the opportunity to optimize the design over the winter break to look for opportunities to reduce the number of affected trees. Part of the project scope is to plant trees, including those that have already been planted on the east/south side this year. Considerations will be made for the nesting season in the tree removal process. 

Tree removals are necessary to meet setback requirements with the renewed trails, amenities and playgrounds.


Fencing will remain in designated work areas to ensure public safety. The construction map shows the scope of the project. Every effort will be made to limit the amount of time the park is fully closed while still prioritizing public safety. 

The following facilities will remain open and accessible throughout construction: 

  • North soccer field and running track (including the soccer field inside the running track). These fields will not be renewed as part of this project.
  • Glengarry Arena 
  • Glengarry Child Care Society
  • Glengarry Community League

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.
