This session looks at the history of Jackie Parker Park, one of Edmonton's largest parks, from its beginnings as what was largely a garbage dump to an environmentally sensitive playground for all seasons, including Edmonton's largest spray park and playground, an 18-hole golf course, off-leash dog park, ski trails, skating rink, and more.
