Leduc city council christens green space Outlook Park

A developed green space in the Leduc Industrial Park has been named Outlook Park by the City of Leduc council, upon the request of Stantec.

A developed green space in the Leduc Industrial Park, north of 74th Avenue, has been named Outlook Park by the City of Leduc council, upon the request of Stantec.

Stantec had created a pile of dirt when evacuating a storm water pond, and instead of simply hauling the dirt away it was developed into a green space.

“So instead of the cost of doing that they built the park. It helps to soften the features of the area,” said Jim Jones, community development and culture manager with the City of Leduc.

Trees are going to be planted; including Trembling Aspen, Saskatoon bush, Chokecherry, Coyote Willow, Paper Birch and Lodgepole Pine.

The hill was born as a partnership between Stantec, the City of Leduc planning department, the Parks, Recreation and Culture Board.

The park is expected to be a popular area for activities such as bird watching, picnics, cross-country skiing, walking and climbing.

Stantec is also posting educational signage within the park, explaining what plants and trees were planted on the site and why.

Other considered names for the park included Hilltop Park, Hillside Park, Promontory Park and Summit Park. However, council approved the name Outlook Park unanimously

According to a City of Leduc presentation, from the top of the 51 foot hill you can see the whole City and almost to Edmonton.
