Under the direction of City of Edmonton Community Services, Stantec Consulting Ltd. conducted a planning study of the south portions of the Whitemud Ravine Nature Reserve and the Klondike Valley Campground lands.
This study is a continuation of the Whitemud Ravine Trail development plan prepared by the City of Edmonton in 1990 and follows general premises set out in the 1992 Ribbon of Green Master Plan.
The purpose of this study was to provide recommendations and an implementation strategy for future recreational development within the upper reaches of the Whitemud Ravine Nature Reserve. The study included three main components: an environmental review, conceptual planning for the ravine trail system, and planning and conceptual design for long term use of the Klondike Valley campground lands. Two open houses were held to obtain input from users, the first with a select group of stakeholders, and the second with the general public.
The study area encompasses Whitemud Ravine from the southern end of existing trail development at approximately 28 Avenue to the southern city boundary at 41 Avenue South, and Blackmud Creek Ravine from its confluence with Whitemud Creek to the city boundary.
