Edmonton is a growing city with infrastructure dating back 30 or more years. The City of Edmonton 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 for addressing the aging park infrastructure. Rehabilitation refers to the need for repair, replacement and/or upgrades in order to meet current and future demands. 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. Other important elements are 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.
