The Ribbon of Green Concept Plan:

  • Proposes extending the present urban park to include the entire length of the river valley and ravine system.
  • Divides the park into three land management zones: Preservation, Conservation and Extensive Use.
  • Represents a balance between making the valley accessible for public use and protecting the natural landscape and wildlife areas.
  • Proposes development of five major parks: Big Island, Terwillegar, Twin Brooks, Buena Vista, and Hermitage.
  • Proposes a continuous trail system including construction of eight river crossing bridges and eventual link to adjacent municipalities.

 The City of Edmonton's North Saskatchewan River Valley and Ravine System Concept Plan (1990) considers the river valley and ravine system a whole. The plan's aim is to establish publicly supported goals for the development and management of our Ribbon of Green.
