Rundle Heights Park Redevelopment

A committee including members from the Beverly Heights Community League along with the parent teacher councils for both St. Jerome and Ivor Dent schools have begun the process of redeveloping the Rundle Heights Playground (Park) at 10805-34 Street.

The playground was built in 1989 and is maintained by the City of Edmonton. However, the playground equipment was reported in poor condition in the 2018 Playground Condition Assessment, which indicates that less than 60% of the equipment is in good condition and greater than 40% of the equipment is in poor condition and will be removed as it becomes beyond repair or unsafe.

The project scope will be to redevelop the existing playground infrastructure within the City of Edmonton parcel (zoned AP) to meet the needs of the community for the next 10-15 years. The project will be in compliance with all City of Edmonton project management requirements, including public engagement, equipment safety standards, and construction practices.

Concept and Budget Update September 2021

At our Sep 1st committee meeting the City of Edmonton presented an official Concept drawing, with measurements and official details.   With the updated Concept plan, can a clearer picture of the budget (previously the estimate was +/- 50%).    The new budget is $804,016.67 (+/- 30%).   We’re still working through the final concept steps and approvals, as we were waiting for that final drawing form the City before we could move forward. Our target is to get all the funds in place by Dec 2021 and build in Spring/Summer of 2022

The results from three surveys have been compiled:

2019 Community Survey and 2019 St Jerome student survey: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QDMh0YAI00oGpvZJGWJlHxjgUE9FSi6k/view?usp=sharing
