Engagement Phase 2: Concept Options

We want to hear what you think about the concept options for Alberta Street and Columbia Park!

Review the information boards and complete the online survey.

Overview of Columbia Park Concepts:

The renewal of Columbia Park will have areas to manage rainwater and increase trees and planted areas in the park. These features will support birds, pollinators, and other urban wildlife, as well as help mitigate and adapt to climate change. The park redesign will provide a restorative nature experience for people and a chance to see wildlife and native trees and flowers as part of their daily routine. A washroom, walking/rolling paths and a playground will be included in all park upgrade options. However, the options vary in the amount of space dedicated to active sports, flexible open space, and natural planting areas. Review the Park Concepts.

Overview of Alberta Street Concepts:

Alberta Street (from West 37th Avenue to 45th Avenue) will be a park-like street that provides a connection for people and urban wildlife between Queen Elizabeth Park and Columbia Park. All the concepts for Alberta Street include more trees and planting areas, improved sidewalks and cycling facilities, access for emergency vehicles, and more places for pedestrians to stop and socialize along the way. There will also be rainwater management within the street to create a blue green system. The street concept options vary in the amount of space dedicated to vehicle drive lanes and parking, as well as how they provide spaces for cycling, rainwater management and planting areas. Review the Street Concepts.
