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

We will be coming back out in November 2017 for a second round of public engagement on concept options.

  • Public Consultation - May 2016
  • 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 lake 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.
