The City is in the process of preliminary design for landscape and amenity redevelopment around Beaumaris Lake.

Built in the late 1970s, Beaumaris Lake is Edmonton’s first and largest stormwater lake. The lake serves as both a stormwater management facility and a recreation destination for area residents and visitors.

The City of Edmonton has initiated a rehabilitation project for the landscape (open spaces) and amenities around the lake. The City engaged with visiting users and residents to guide the vision and concept development for this open space project.  The Preliminary Design phase of Beaumaris Lake Open Space Rehabilitation project is underway. The results of this phase will inform a funding request for the 2019-2022 Capital Budget cycle.

Beaumaris Lake Stormwater Condition Assessment.

  • Public Consultation - May 2015

  • 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.

Two rounds of public engagement activities, for each phase of the project, was completed to find out how residents and visiting users were using the open space surrounding the stormwater facility. Feedback gathered outlined what people would like to see improved or changed.

A number of concept options were created for the sections of open space around the stormwater facility based on the feedback gathered. These concept options were then shared with the public to provide an opportunity for input on what they liked and what they would prefer was changed.

All input gathered was used to inform the preferred concept design, which was shared at the public engagement in Spring 2018.
