The City of St. Albert is redeveloping Amherst Park playground in Akinsdale. Residents are invited to share feedback on the playground proposed design options through a survey. Feedback will help identify which play features are preferred and will be considered alongside:

  • Available budget
  • Sustainable maintenance requirements
  • Product availability
  • Project schedule
  • Contractor qualifications and experience

The scope of this program falls within the municipal repair, maintain, replace (RMR) capital plan. A guiding principle of this program is to replace "like for like" elements. Therefore, where possible the playground replacement design strives to include key play feature elements that are consistent with the original design.

We thank everyone who submits their thoughts and ideas through the survey. Remember to click the subscribe button at the top right of this page to sign up for project updates.
