Twin Falls Territorial Park

North West Territories

Project Overview

EDA Collaborative Inc. working for the Government of the Northwest Territories, developed a Masterplan for the upgrading of three existing parks:  Alexandra Falls, Louise Falls and Escarpment Creek.  The spectacular nature of the parks provided unique opportunities with the Hay River dropping dramatically over two major waterfalls as it flows to Great Slave Lake.  It was identified early in the process that the image presented by the existing park was discontinuous and weak, and therefore the main goal was not just to upgrade the facilities, but to link the three together into a strongly defined, well developed major park that would provide a unique experience for tourists.  The scope of work of this study included a bio-physical inventory and analysis, market assessment, alternative concepts for development, final plan development, costing, and recommendations for interpretive programming, phasing, operations and maintenance guidelines.
