Gallagher Park Projects - Update October 2021
Gallagher Park Concept Plan
The(20MB) project is complete. It establishes a 20-year vision for development and use of the area. The implementation of the concept plan will advance as funding becomes available through future budget cycles.
As part of the Concept Plan development, an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report, along with a Site Location Study (SLS) report were completed.
The City continues to investigate methods to address the drainage concern on site and is working closely with EPCOR to determine the best way to complete this work. As this work advances further updates will be shared.
Gallagher Park Remediation Project
This project is to excavate and remove contaminated soil near the former incinerator site, south of the Muttart Conservatory at Gallagher Park. The area requiring remediation is on the western portion of Gallagher Park near the Peace Dove eastward to the first tree grove of trees as shown on the Excavation Limits Site Plan. The site will be restored to a grassy area suitable for public use. This project is scheduled to proceed in Spring 2022. Please check back in Spring 2022 for further updates.
