Consultation has concluded

Thank you for participating in the online engagement for Riverside Trail Realignment. The Ideas tool are now closed.

The feedback from the online engagement, including emails and phone calls from community members received by the Project Manager, will be used along with technical requirements and City plans and policies, to inform next steps. Additional information will be posted on the webpage as the project progresses.


The Riverside Trail Realignment project focuses on an approximately 1.9 km stretch of trail that runs between the Riverside Golf Course and the North Saskatchewan River.

Due to safety and accessibility concerns, the Riverside Trail has been officially closed to the public since 2013. However, the City has received several requests to rehabilitate the trail.

The trail rehabilitation was initially planned to begin construction in Spring 2021, with site preparations beginning in early February. Recently, the City heard concerns regarding the tree clearing required to realign the trail. The trail rehabilitation is paused and the City is currently inviting further feedback from the public.


To learn more about how the City of Edmonton developed the proposed design, we invite you to watch the video presentation above and then provide your feedback from March 3 - 17.

We are looking for your input on:

  • Factors we should be aware of with this trail and area
  • Anything we may have missed in the plan

Your input will be used, along with technical requirements, City plans and policies to inform next steps. Additional information will be posted on the webpage as the project progresses.
