Edgewood Park is the next great neighborhood park, providing space for all to connect through nature and play. Acquired in 1951, this 3.9 hectare (9.6 acres) park served as the location for the Sunnyside Saddle Club for many decades. It is now in the middle of a rapidly growing neighbourhood and being transformed to provide amenities for the community.
The park was designed through a community consultation process, including two open houses (November 28, 2017 and May 8, 2018) and a community site meeting on February 3, 2020. Review the related documents for more information:
After preliminary project work, collecting feedback from residents, revising the concept plan and finalizing detail design plans, the park is now under construction.

Fall 2017 – Spring 2020
This phase involved site surveying, environmental assessments, other analysis, preliminary design work and site preparation.
Nov 2017 – Feb 2020
This phase included two public open houses, a community site meeting, and surveys on preliminary design work for the park.
Fall 2019 – Spring 2020
This phase involved the refinement of the park concept design, detailed design, permitting and approvals.
Following a hazard tree assessment and arboricultural review, 20 trees were identified to pose a significant public safety concern or will be negatively impacted by necessary grading while constructing the park. 93 new trees are planned to be planted in the park.
Construction of Edgewood Park began.
The park is scheduled to open.
