Lewis Farms exterior rendering

The Lewis Farms Facility and Park project includes a community recreation centre, public library, academic centre and district park.

The Lewis Farms Facility and Park will be located in the Rosenthal neighbourhood and will include a community recreation centre, public library and district park.

A need for a new facility in the west end was identified in the 2005-2015 Recreation Facility Master Plan and the Medium Term Recreation Facility and Sports Field Plan .

Public engagement and stakeholder feedback supported a Final Design for a multi-purpose recreation centre that contains aquatic elements, indoor ice amenities, a fitness centre, multi-purpose spaces and gymnasiums, and an Edmonton Public Library branch. The district park outdoor components include sports fields, gathering spaces, skateboard park, and walkways. Feedback results can be viewed in the What We Heard report.
