Hermitage Park has been rehabilitated to ensure Edmontonians can continue to enjoy this valued asset for many years to come.

Project Update - June 2023

Minor landscaping work is expected to wrap up by the end of summer 2023. Work is not expected to have an impact on the park. 

Hermitage Park has been reopened for Edmontonians to enjoy. 

Project Overview

Hermitage Park is located in the northeast end of the city and is an important part of Edmonton’s river valley. The park is filled with natural trails, a large off-leash dog area and picnic sites. This park provides users a variety of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.        

In 2021, the City began rehabilitating the park roads, parking lot and entry and wayfinding signage to extend the life cycle of the park infrastructure and provide citizens the ability to continue to enjoy the park site for many years to come.  

The purpose of this project was to replace the aging park infrastructure that has deteriorated over time due to heavy usage and weathering. The park was  identified as in poor condition and in need of repair and replacement before renewal.

The Hermitage area attracts a high volume of users; therefore keeping the City asset in good repair contributes to a safe public space that supports the goal of a healthy city.
