The 262 metre long footbridge links Terwillegar Park to Oleskiw River Valley Park on the north side of the river. The unique, minimalist profile of the first ‘stressed ribbon’ bridge in Edmonton provides a striking river valley crossing.
The footbridge connects to the existing river valley trail system through the West End Trails initiative.
Planning to visit the footbridge? Here are a couple things to keep in mind.
Be aware of parking restrictions in Terwillegar Park. The City of Edmonton will be expanding the parking lot next spring to meet the high demand for parking.
Dogs need to be leashed on the Terwillegar Park Footbridge and in River Valley Oleskiw Park. There are no changes to the off-leash areas in Terwillegar Park.
