Rossdale River Trail is located in the Rossdale neighbourhood, between Walterdale Bridge and 100 A Street and 94 Avenue NW, and between the North Saskatchewan River bank and EPCOR Water Treatment Building.
Rossdale River Trail was closed during Walterdale Bridge construction and is now open for public use following necessary maintenance and spot repairs.
Trail conditions are not yet up to City standard and will require full rehabilitation (including sub-base, paving, landscaping) which will begin in the spring of 2019 and take approximately 2 months to complete.
Spring 2019: Trail will close temporarily for full rehabilitation work
October 2018: Trail reopened for public use following spot repair work
2013: Trail closed for Walterdale Bridge Construction
Rossdale River Trail was identified as a priority for rehabilitation due to poor conditions and safety concerns. Minor repairs, in more extreme spots, were completed following completion of Walterdale Bridge construction. That temporary repair work has made it possible for the trail to reopen to the public until the spring when the full rehabilitation project will begin. Rehabilitation work in the spring will involve the entire paved trail and adjacent landscaping, from the east side of Walterdale Bridge along the river into the Rossdale neighbourhood.
