Edmonton's first woman architect, Mary Louise Imrie, donated this land along the North Saskatchewan River to the Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation in 1988. Her intention was that the land be used and enjoyed by the people of Alberta.
The site will be undergoing upgrades to the trail system in Summer 2015 in partnership with Parkland County and the River Valley Alliance. These upgrades will create a more accessible trail, with rest and waste facilities, access to the Prospector’s Point staging area down below and connections that will eventually lead south to the Town of Devon and north to the Devonian Botanic Gardens. While upgrades are occurring, the site will be closed.
