North Shore Promenade Location Map
View larger version (PDF)

The City of Edmonton is exploring the possibility of a promenade along the north bank of the North Saskatchewan River adjacent to River Valley Road, between Government House Park and the Walterdale Bridge.

A separate “river walk” project, the Touch the Water Promenade, is proposed to the east of the Walterdale Bridge, and includes an opportunity to get down to the river’s edge.

At this stage of the North Shore Promenade project, the City is doing a survey to gauge public support for the potential of this project.

Project Overview

The North Shore Promenade would provide a “river walk” experience. The promenade could include features such as areas to gather, viewing decks, paths for pedestrians, cyclists and other wheeled users, seating and/or enhanced access points. Future design of the promenade, if approved, would include significant public engagement and technical analysis. Public feedback, technical considerations and City, provincial and federal policies and regulations, would determine the final design.

Technical reviews to confirm the possibility for development of the North Shore Promenade have not been completed. At this stage, the City is gauging public support for the potential of this project before proceeding.
