Hinton/Yellowhead County, Alberta
Mary Reimer Park is located at the eastern edge of Hinton, bordering Yellowhead County. Increasing demand for additional park space has prompted the Town of Hinton and Yellowhead County to acquire 186 acres of land for the expansion of Mary Reimer Park. The newly formed park is to become the major active sports park for the region.
A challenge of this project was to accommodate the range of recreational facilities desired by the client and stakeholders, as a vast amount of the acquired land is typified by steep slopes and dense forest cover. The master plan developed by EDA Collaborative Inc. subdivides the park into nodes based on intended recreational use, thus providing areas for active recreation such as soccer, slo-pitch and rodeos in addition to areas for trail development, hiking and camping.Project Components
