The urban park will provide space for public events, gatherings and outdoor activities for nearby residents and visitors.

The City of Edmonton is planning a new urban park in the city’s downtown.

In a press release, the development of Park Warehousea new space designed to create gathering spaces and a hub for the community, was announced Monday morning.

Early designs for Warehouse Park have the space planned to occupy 1.47 hectares of land between 106 Street and 108 Street to Jasper Avenue and 102 Street.

With the size of the park at nearly two football fields, planners envision the area becoming an inclusive mixed-use space that will serve the needs of downtown residents as well as workers and other visitors.

The project is fully funded by the Capital’s Downtown Community Revitalization Levy and is expected to be completed sometime in 2025.

As part of the announcement, the City is hosting a few events open to the public to gather feedback and recommendations on how the space should be developed and some concerns the project may have.

Two different renders of what the development might look like when complete are available on YouTube via a link provided by the city as the video is not listed.

The first pop-up event is scheduled to take place at the YMCA Resource Center located at 9538 103A Avenue NW on May 3 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Another event is scheduled at the Warehouse Park site on May 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at 10135 107 Street.
