Winter Amenities on Parkland
The City of Edmonton can authorize the use of open parkland for a public snowbank rink, ice trail or ski trail. This opportunity is open to organizations and will require liability insurance. Depending on what’s proposed, additional permits and/or fees may apply.
Applications must be submitted by September 15 each year.
Neighbourhood and district parks can be improved through a partnered process involving a neighbourhood organization and the City of Edmonton. Visit the Park & Facility Development Team to learn more about this process.
