William Hawrelak Park is a 68 hectare park in the river valley featuring a 5 hectare lake and open grassy areas. The park hosts several major festivals and events throughout the year and is a great location for all Edmontonians and visitors to explore. 

The City is looking to develop a 10-year rehabilitation plan to ensure the park continues to serve the recreational and event needs of Edmontonians by addressing aging park infrastructure that requires repair, replacement or upgrades.

Project Overview

Edmonton is a growing city with infrastructure dating back 30 or more years.  The City prioritizes rehabilitation of aging buildings and parks to ensure they will serve Edmontonians now and for years to come.

William Hawrelak Park is one of the most popular parks in Edmonton. This park has been identified as a priority to address aging park infrastructure that requires repair, replacement and upgrades in order to meet current and future demands of the park.  This project will develop a 10-year rehabilitation plan that defines a phased approach to address the existing infrastructure within the park.

The rehabilitation plan will consider the physical condition of the assets, the current policies that are in effect and the operational requirements to maintain and sustain the park. Another important element is how the park functions, how it is currently used and how it will be used in the future. Public engagement will gather this information from spontaneous users as well as festival and event groups.
