Two days after the City unveils the preferred concept for the Oleskiw River Valley Park Master Plan, another public space will be given the spotlight. A public engagement session is scheduled next Wednesday to help shape the 10-year rehabilitation plan for the 68-hectare William Hawrelak Park.

The park has been identified as a priority for addressing the aging infrastructure. The decade-long rehabilitation plan will define a phased approach in upgrading the park's infrastructure, considering the physical condition of these assets, current policies in effect, and the operational requirements to maintain the space. 

The City wants Edmontonians to share their experiences visiting the 1967-opened William Hawrelak Park, which will form the basis for the development of the rehabilitation plan as the project navigates its preliminary stages.

The session will be held at Windsor Park Community Hall (11840 87 Avenue) from 4 to 8:30 PM on Wednesday, July 11. Anyone unable to attend can still participate in the process by completing an online survey available from July 11 to July 31.
