Upcoming Engagement Opportunity

The City will be hosting an online information session on Wednesday March 3, 2021, at 7pm to provide more details on the project and answer questions from the public. Please check back for registration information.

Following the information session, we will be seeking feedback from the public to advise on the proposed trail realignment through our Engaged Edmonton platform.

Project Overview

The Riverside Trail realignment project focuses 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 has been officially closed to the public since 2013.

Proposed Trail Realignment

The City’s recommended approach to rehabilitate the trail is supported by an Environmental Impact Assessment and Site Location Study, approved by Edmonton City Council in November 2020. The approach aims to realign the trail to ensure long-term viability, limit environmental and ecological impacts and provide safe river valley access for all trail users.
