Help Create a Vision for Queen Elizabeth Park

Queen Elizabeth Park has been a well-loved destination park for Edmontonians for almost a century. Given all the planned improvements in the area, including the new Walterdale Bridge and the repurposing of the Rossdale Power Plant, in addition to the demolition of the old Queen Elizabeth Pool, the time is ripe to re-imagine what this park means to us and to explore options for its future.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

The City of Edmonton will be hosting the first in a series of three public events around the development of a high-level Concept Plan for the entire park and a Master Plan for Upper (south) portion of the park.

Workshop 1: Idea Gathering
Wednesday, April 18, 2012
6:30pm to 8:30pm
Old Timers’ Cabin, 9430 Scona Rd. NW

 This event will be a full 2-hour facilitated workshop focused on gathering ideas.

 In this workshop you will be asked to:

  • contribute your local knowledge about Queen Elizabeth Park;
  • tell us what you value about the park;
  • identify what should be preserved or enhanced;
  • identify what should to be changed or improved, and;
  • identify how you would like to see the park used in the future.

 WHY ME?

Your input at this workshop is important to help us create a vision for the park that will attract, captivate and delight park visitors now and into the future.

It will also help us identify priorities for the park that will be used to guide the design of the park Concept Plan and Upper Park Master Plan.

WHAT IF I CAN’T BE THERE?

There will be an online survey available for two weeks following the workshop which you can use to contribute to the process. A link to the survey will be provided on the project website: www.edmonton.ca/QEparkplan.

TELL ME MORE!
