Project Overview

The Community Parks Framework is a proposed new approach the City is considering to support the development and renewal of Community park amenities. The framework intends to replace the Neighbourhood Park Development Program which started in 1983. 

The Community Parks Framework will ensure equitable access to community park amenities for all Edmontonians. The framework aims to ensure the City's investment in development and renewal of amenities is providing the optimum long-term value through planning, operations and life cycle management.  

The proposed framework will align with the City policies such as The City Plan, ConnectEdmonton, Breathe, GBA+ and the Infrastructure Asset Management Policy to guide strategic development and renewal in a consistent, equitable and responsible manner.
