The City has approved a Master Plan for Oleskiw River Valley Park that establishes a 25-year vision and management plan for the space.

Project Overview

Oleskiw Park is a 193-acre park located in the west end, south of the Fort Edmonton Footbridge and adjacent to the Edmonton Country Club. In its current form, the park includes a formal trail and several informal trails, as well as various natural vegetation areas. There is currently no public vehicle entry into the park, which limits its development.

The Terwillegar Park Footbridge and West End Trails projects have created a shared-use path through Oleskiw River Valley Park. This trail provides park users access to and through the park. 

The public consultation crafted the vision for Oleskiw River Valley Park and has established guiding principles that informed the basis for the park’s master plan. The master plan has identified opportunities for the Oleskiw River Valley Park to create a lasting legacy that is unique to the surrounding neighbourhoods and considers the park’s natural and cultural identity. The master plan reflects the needs of today while enhancing and preserving the ecological integrity of the park as part of Edmonton’s river valley park system for generations to come.
