Built in the late 1970’s, Beaumaris Lake is both Edmonton’s first stormwater lake as well as the largest. The lake serves as both a stormwater management facility and a recreation destination for area residents and visitors. The City of Edmonton is beginning the process of concept design for landscape and amenity redevelopment around the lake. The City is engaging lake users and residents to help guide the concept development.

Current Activity

In June 2017, we went out to Beaumaris Lake to find out how residents and visitors currently use the open space surrounding the stormwater facility and to find out what people would like to see improved or changed.

This is What We Heard in June.

A number of concept options were created for the open space around the stomwater facility using the feedback we received in June. 

In November, we hosted two engagement events where we shared these concept options and people provided their input on what they liked and what they would prefer changed.

These are the dispay boards that were set up at the engagement events in November.

If you were unable to attend the public engagement events, we aslo invite you to participate in an online survey avavailable from November 18 - December 1, 2017.

Your input will inform the preferred concept design, which will be presented to the public in Winter/Spring 2018.

2013: Needs Assessment Stakeholder Interviews - Summer 2013

Project Overview

In 2016, the City completed a condition assessment of Beaumaris Lake which included the surrounding landscape, community amenities (open space) and the stormwater facility (lake). While the stormwater facility was confirmed to be functioning well in terms of flood protections and water quality enhancement, the assessment pointed to a need for rehabilitation of the surrounding landscaping and open spaces around the  stormwater facility and adjacent park.

The objective of this first project phase is to develop a functional plan - essentially the long-term “vision” for the lake - which will be used to create concepts. Approved concepts will help to inform designs required for request in the next capital budget cycle.
