A new district park is being developed in the Heritage Valley area.

Project Update - August 2023

With the completion of Stage 2A in July 2023, the construction for the entire Heritage Valley District Park project is nearing completion.

The new sports fields will not be available until spring 2024 to allow for seed germination. 

The new Catholic school (Father Michael McCaffery) is under construction by Alberta Infrastructure on the northwest side of Heritage Valley District Park. To accommodate construction of the school, a temporary access road and a laydown area within the park is required for a duration exceeding the parameters of the development of the district park. As a result, an additional stage of development will be required to complete the park once the temporary access road and laydown is no longer needed. Construction for Stage 2B will be initiated upon completion of the school.

Project Overview

The City is currently in the build phase for the Heritage Valley District Park which will support the growing Heritage Valley area. It will be home to two high schools, a community centre, multiple sports fields, and a variety of open space amenities to serve the area.

Through a series of public engagement opportunities, the City gathered input from residents and property owners, the public and Catholic school boards, community leagues, sports groups and organizations. The feedback gathered, along with City policies and technical requirements, was used to develop a final design.

Construction was to begin in summer 2021. A delay in securing a contractor due to funding constraints resulted in execution of only critical scope of the work in 2021, and rescheduling remaining work moved to 2022. 

Project Stages

The project began in 2020 and will be completed in 2 stages, subject to funding approval.
