Project Overview

The Riverside Trail realignment project focused on an approximately 1.9 km stretch of trail that runs between the Riverside Golf Course and the North Saskatchewan River. The trail is well-used and very popular with neighbouring communities and is also a destination for Edmontonians looking for river valley access and views. Over the past several years, the trail has had numerous issues as a result of high water events, ongoing bank degradation and instability resulting in significant slumps and other safety and accessibility concerns. The trail had been officially closed to the public since 2013.
