North Telford lands will evolve into outdoor amenity to meet varied interests

Design and development of the North Telford Recreational Lands received a thumbs-up from Leduc City Council, Aug. 25, 2014, as part of a multi-phase approach to Leduc’s 2010 Telford Lake Master Plan.

“It’s an exciting step forward as these lands provide the perfect setting for a range of informal recreation activities focused on passive use and so citizens and visitors can appreciate nature,” says Jim Jones, manager of Community Development and Culture with the City of Leduc.

The key design features outlined in the design plan include:

• Picnic area, shelter and washroom facilities.

• Mountain bike terrain park, benches and garbage receptacles.

• Multi-way and natural trail development, interpretive trails and educational signage.

• Children’s play area.

• Canoe landing(s).

• Nature and wildlife lookouts.

“It consists of a range of outdoor recreation and interpretive opportunities with minimal impact to the existing forest habitat,” says Jones. “This plan also includes recommendations to shield the site from neighbouring residences and to restore disturbed areas to a more naturalized state. Most importantly for North Telford residents, this concept plan also clearly outlines the permanent road closure of 43 Street and the addition of a parking lot as these lands will be considered a day-use area.”

The concept design plan also identifies a multi-year, long-term funding strategy that carries a total estimated investment of $4.5 million, with the first stage to be completed by 2017 with an approved capital budget of $1.69 million.

Stage 2 and 3 would be completed at later dates, depending on capital funding.

This concept design plan was developed in partnership with city administration and the North Telford Recreational Lands Steering Committee, along with a city contractor.
