This 280 m pedestrian bridge spans the North Saskatchewan River, linking Edmonton’s River Valley Oleskiw on the north bank to Terwillegar Park on the south bank. The bridge is the world’s second longest stressed ribbon suspension bridge.
Approximately 5 km of primary and secondary trails built to provide linkages along the river in Southwest Edmonton. A primary trail links to the Terwillegar Pedestrian Bridge. A secondary trail connects the West Anthony Henday Bridge to Terwillegar Park.
This project included the construction of approximately 14 km of primary and secondary trails in the east end of Edmonton on both the north and south sides of the river, creating connections to the existing Corporal Ainsworth Dyer Bridge and Anthony Henday East Bridge.
This project included hand launches and docks at four locations in Edmonton, including the refurbishment of one motor boat launch. These river access points provide safe and efficient access to the river, and include parking, comfort stations, and waste receptacles.
This 5.6 km primary trail starts at Ellerslie Road in Edmonton, then continues to the Anthony Henday Drive on the south side of the river. Here, trail users can cross the river on the existing pedestrian bridge or continue on the existing trails.
This 2.6 km primary trail runs from the Anthony Henday Drive bridge on the north side of the river to the E.L. Smith Water Treatment Plant, where a pedestrian bridge will cross the river into Terwillegar Park.
This pedestrian bridge is a vital river crossing and will enable a trail loop. This project will link Terwillegar Park with the E.L. Smith Water Treatment Plant and will connect neighbourhoods in west Edmonton to the river valley trails.
This project includes three boat launches, two docks, and one hand launch. The boat and hand launches will provide safe and efficient access to the river. Boat launches will be designed for vehicle circulation with a ramp into the river, parking, comfort stations, and waste receptacles. The docks will provide safe moorage for boats and safe access to the river.
This water front promenade will enhance water access and provide a unique public space in downtown Edmonton. This project will be a signature component of the RVA’s vision for a regional river valley park.
