Glengarry District Park is being renewed with a construction start date in September 2021.

Project Update - March 2022

Construction Update

Construction will resume once the weather allows in the spring. In 2022, construction will focus on the north side of the park. The walking trails will be renewed, and new playground and spray park structures will be installed. Other park amenities, including furniture and a dog park, will also be installed. New pickleball courts will be constructed adjacent to the tennis court area.

Tree Removals

Tree removals and transplantation to relocate trees on the north side of the park will be completed in early spring. Considerations will be made for the nesting season. Tree removals and relocation are necessary to meet setback requirements with the renewed trails, amenities and playgrounds. A combination of deciduous and coniferous trees will be planted in 2022.

Currently, the plan for construction is to allow the park to remain open and fence off areas where active construction is taking place. Every effort will be made to limit the amount of time the park is fully closed while still prioritizing public safety. 

The following amenities will remain open and accessible throughout construction: 

  • North soccer field and running track (including the soccer field inside the running track). These fields will not be renewed as part of this project.
  • Glengarry Arena. 
  • Glengarry Child Care Society.
  • Glengarry Community League.
  • Tennis courts will be closed for a short time when the fence is renewed.

Residents living nearby may experience increased noise levels and traffic. We are continuing to abide by the Community Standards Bylaw 14600 for noise from construction, and in many cases, are able to complete the work earlier than the guidelines require.

Fencing will remain in designated work areas to ensure public safety. Please watch your mailbox for construction bulletins that will provide more information along with contact details for any concerns regarding landscaping and access.

About the Project

Edmonton’s mature neighbourhoods are great places to live and have many treasures including District Activity Parks. These parks serve several neighbourhoods in the larger area and are important for health, wellness and quality of life. They are part of a city-wide park system and support a wide variety of facilities, programs and open space activities.  

Glengarry Park, 13340 85 Street, is a District Activity Park located in the Glengarry neighbourhood. The City has completed a master plan to establish a long term vision for this park. It includes a concept plan which was created using input and ideas gathered through public engagement. This plan will be used to shape the park’s future, taking into consideration the interests expressed by the public, use of existing amenities, new amenities and activities, operational requirements and City strategy and policies.
