The Alfred H. Savage Centre in Whitemud Park makes it easier for Edmontonians of all abilities to pursue nature-related activities in the river valley. This hub for outdoor education and environmental programs also serves as a warm-up and washroom facility and is a great place for the community to gather.
This facility is named after Alfred Savage, a Commissioner of Public Affairs for the City of Edmonton between 1974 and 1981. Savage was a driving force behind City facilities such as the Muttart Conservatory and John Janzen Nature Centre.
The centre is built to LEED Silver standards (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). It uses geothermal heating, water use reduction methods, reflective roofing, exterior light fixtures that point downward for less light pollution and during construction 84% of waste was diverted away from the landfill mainly by recycling material.
Conveniently located in Whitemud Park next to the beauty of Edmonton’s river valley, the Alfred H. Savage Centre serves as a hub for community rentals and events. No matter the occasion, the naturally lit space of our rental facility is suitable for anything from meetings, to corporate retreats, to small weddings and more.
Note: You must supply your own projector, computer/laptop and HDMI cable if your event requires those devices.
Clients are welcome to use any caterer of their choice as we do not impose any restrictions nor do we have catering surcharges. You will need to confirm with your caterer that any supplies and/or equipment they needs to be dropped off or picked up will have to be done during the times of your rental as the facility is not staffed on a regular basis.
With consent from the facility representative and a valid liquor permit, alcohol can be served during your event, provided individuals that handle it have Pro-serve certification. Failure to display the liquor permit will prohibit the service and consumption of alcohol. Service of all alcohol must end one hour prior to the end of your booked time. For information on the permits required for your event, please contact the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission at 780-447-8600.
*$25.00 per hour fee for a security guard will also apply if you opt to serve alcohol at your event.
Please note: The room is rented as one large space.
