Park Development Projects

Park Development
Parks, Recreation & Culture strives to provide residents with parks, trails and other recreation facilities that are:
  • thoughtfully designed
  • well maintained
  • meet the needs of our community
We do this by building new parks and improving our existing parks.

Silver Valley Gathering Place – Blaney Hamlet

Project Description:

The Parks, Recreation & Culture Infrastructure projects include a gathering place project in the Silver Valley area with the first being in the Blaney Hamlet neighbourhood. Additional land was acquired in 2020 to support this initiative. This first gathering place is proposed to be located adjacent to the new neighbourhood park on 230A Street.

In addition to developing a gathering place at this location, the City is exploring developing youth action amenities along with a bike skills park as a sponsored feature. We would like to hear your thoughts on desired amenities and programming for the gathering place, as well as to hear what kind of youth action amenities may be desired.

Due to Covid-19 we are encouraging residents to review the project information panels and submit an online comment form to leave feedback regarding this project. We would appreciate your feedback by August 16, 2020.

For residents who would like to review this information and ask questions of Parks, Recreation and Culture staff in person, while maintaining a 2.0m physical distance, two meeting times will be available by appointment. Please RSVP to to book a 15 minute appointment time during the following dates and times:
Dates: Thursday July 16, 4:00pm – 7:00pm
Dates: Tuesday July 21, 5:00pm – 8:00pm
Location: Basketball court at Blaney Hamlet Park (13700 230A Street)
