The Touch the Water Promenade will focus on a central stretch of the north bank along the North Saskatchewan River Valley in 2 connected areas. One area is adjacent to the Rossdale neighbourhood and the other is upstream of the river, along River Valley Road to Government House Park.
Design work will focus on 2 distinct and connected project areas and will align with, and build on, the policy direction from Breathe: Edmonton’s Green Network Strategy, Ribbon of Green and River Crossing.
This project includes a wide range of technical studies, expertise and considerations as well as landscape architectural design and engagement. The technical studies and expertise include archaeology and paleontology, geotechnical and hydrological engineering, civil and structural engineering, fish and aquatic biologists, environmental scientists and biologists, and cost estimating consultants.
This project is in the early stages of planning and design. It is not yet funded for construction. The planning process for Touch the Water, including engagement, is essential to ensuring that we “get it right”, and will give us a blueprint for future development that reflects a shared vision for the north shore of the river valley between Government House Park and Rossdale.
