The Capital Region River Valley Park covers 18,000 acres linking over 100 km through the North Saskatchewan River valley. It is destined to become a world-class river front park that would be to the Capital Region what Stanley Park is to Vancouver or Central Park is to New York.

The RVA vision balances protecting the natural capital of the river valley while ensuring our residents and visitors can access and enjoy it.
