A second and final online discussion will run from April 4-15 to allow Calgarians to provide input on a draft management plan for River Park, Sandy Beach and Britannia Slopes.
This moderated online consultation will focus on feedback identified in earlier public discussions.
A common theme that has emerged during previous public consultations is to limit restoring the health of the park and its natural area and not introduce new features that will attract more park users. As a result, key conversations on the Apr
il 4-15 online forum will include: how to sustain the turf at the popular off-leash areas, how to slow erosion on the steep slopes of this river valley park, how to permit river access while protecting the environment and more.
To take part, please visit www.riverparkconsultation.ca, register, and join a discussion, rate participant comments and create a new discussion on the park topic of their choice.
River Park, Sandy Beach and Britannia Slopes are three large open spaces form a popular southwest regional park located just north of the Glenmore Dam and along the Elbow River. The goal of the management plan is to make this highly used public space enjoyable and sust
ainable for current and future generations.
In mid-May 2011, The City of Calgary Parks department will post a draft of the park management plan at www.calgary.ca/riverpark for public review. From there, an updated draft plan will be presented to Council’s Community & Protective Services committee on June 29, 2011.
