Garbage Dump to Playground for All Seasons with An Environmental Flavor

Doug Frost

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.
