Project Overview

The City of Edmonton is developing a new park at the southeast corner of 107 Avenue and 105 Street, as part of the 107 Avenue Revitalization Project

This park will support a sustainable, vibrant, interactive and green community, along with the revitalization of 107 Avenue. Program elements for the park were developed through public engagement inputs, internal City stakeholders and City policy and guidelines. The highest ranked elements included lighting, performance area, child-friendly area, paved festival space, trees and grass and the introduction of colour. The proposed scope of work includes:

  • Plaza - hard surface festival/event space and gathering space

  • Graphic art wraps - integration of traffic signal cabinets/LRT equipment shed with park-themed, colourful graphic art wrap
  • Park shade shelter at the north edge - highlights a park entrance, enhances the transit waiting area, winter break place with seating, lighting
  • Gateway feature - to highlight the key park entry from the intersection
  • Casual gathering area - festival/event seating area with stand-up tables, picnic tables and benches
  • Seating - Accessible seating with backs and arms, concrete seating walls, social and community interaction area with durable finishes
  • Child-Friendly Space - landscape feature attractive to children and families for casual, unstructured play with rubberized colourful surfacing and playful casual seating
