About the Project
Beaver Hills House Park and Michael Phair Park are two open spaces in Edmonton’s downtown. This project will renew aging infrastructure within the parks and will also improve the overall design and function. The goal of the renewal, in addition to repairing or replacing the existing infrastructure, is to improve safety and accessibility and increase the use of these open spaces in our downtown.
The project will make improvements in lighting, sightlines and other park features as well as upgrade and fix park infrastructure. A public washroom will also be added.
The City of Edmonton is currently in the concept phase for the renovation of the parks. The design will be completed as per The City Plan,
, the Downtown Public Places Plan and in accordance with Breathe: Edmonton’s Green Network Strategy, which supports a multifunctional green network.
While there will be technical constraints that will limit options for some park elements, through a series of engagement opportunities the City will be gathering input from stakeholders and the public to advise on improvements to the design.
