The Touch the Water Promenade will create a waterfront public space that connects  the existing river valley trail, Rossdale Generating Station/pump houses, and the new Walterdale Bridge. The promenade is planned to create a series of spaces that can be used for public gathering and  individual enjoyment of the river and River Valley.

The North Shore Promenade is a separate “river walk” project being explored. The potential project site is adjacent to the Touch the Water Promenade, on the north bank of the river valley from Government House Park to the west of the Walterdale Bridge.

Project Overview

The Touch the Water Promenade would provide a “river walk” experience. The promenade could include features such as areas to gather, viewing decks, paths for pedestrians, cyclists and other wheeled users, seating, enhanced access to the community and enhanced access to the river.

Design of the promenade will include significant public engagement and technical analysis. Public feedback, technical considerations and City, provincial and federal policies and regulations, will inform the final concept design.
