Butler Memorial Park Sign

Project Overview

The City is planning to redevelop Butler Memorial Park, located at 15715 Stony Plain Road. The Jasper Place Revitalization Strategy and subsequent Jasper Place Area Redevelopment Plan recommend enhancements to the park, and were approved by City Council.

Enhancements to Butler Memorial Park are intended to contribute to the continuing revitalization of the Jasper Place area and to support the goals of safety, connections and community building. The new design will enhance area character and integrate with current plans for improving the adjacent Jasper Place Transit Centre.  

Feedback contributed at Public Engagement sessions for the area and park redevelopment plans provided information on how citizens believe the park could be improved.

Setting direction: public engagement opportunity to refine option

What We Heard - May 2019

Winter 2019 - Exploring Options
Three concept options were explored through a public survey and engagement events. The feedback from the public consultation, community groups and City stakeholders guided the direction in which the concept options were refined into one preferred design.

The key components within the concept options that had the most support were:

  • Centrally located plaza

  • Desire for well-lit spaces

  • Keep mature trees and shrubs

  • Stage for events and festivals

  • Pathways that supported efficient flow of travel through the park to the transit centre

  • Larger grassed area for activities and event space

  • Centrally located playspace for kids away from busy roads and closer to transit
