Fulton Ravine South Park - January 2017 Update

We have some interesting results from the survey conducted in 2016.  We are still in the process of analyzing the data but here are some of the results we have found so far. We have also provided a copy of the survey to show what questions were asked.  Respondents had the choice of checking off the items of interest, and/or they could also number the items in order of priority if they wished to do so. We had 151 surveys completed. This was a combination of online surveys, and surveys completed in person.  We had a variety of venues in which the in person surveys were conducted.  Respondents included a mix of current users of the park and those who have never been to the park, and a wide variety of ages.  In addition to the responses on the items that were presented, we had quite a number of additional suggestions for ideas for the park  Hope you find the results interesting!  Once we finish the analysis, more results will be posted here, so check back soon!  The intent is to share these results with the City, and see where we can go from there.
 
In terms of fundraising for the park, we don't have any fundraisers scheduled at this time, but we are always looking for ideas and/ or people who would like to assist with this worthy cause.

Example Park Survey
 

Fulton Ravine South Park - October 2016 Update

We conducted the park survey over the summer and through September, concluding on October 1st. We had lots of great feedback. Thanks to everyone who participated. The results will be reviewed and summarized over the month of October. We will share the results with the City and with the community.  

We are going to hold some fundraising events over the winter to raise money to complete the parking lot which is part off the initial phase of park development (funds need to be in place for this before we can move on to other more interesting aspects of the park!) . If you have an idea for a fundraising event, or you'd like to help out, let us know. 

There will be a fun improv night on Wed Nov 23 at L'Unitheatre (8627 91 St). It will be a full-length improvised show about skateboarding.  There will also be a silent auction. Tickets available at http://kickflip.eventbrite.ca

Fulton Ravine South Park - May 2016 Update

SECLA, in conjunction with the City of Edmonton, is developing plans for the second phase of park development near the skate park.

Our ideas for the second phase focus on Healthy Living in a Healthy Environment:

·         With protection of biodiversity through native plantings and low impact development practices

·         Plantings of edible trees and shrubs for the enjoyment of humans as well as birds and other creatures!

·         Design for both active living as well as passive enjoyment of the outdoors through benches, adult fitness equipment, and open green space. 

Do these ideas interest you? Would you like to express your opinion, or become part of the project team? We want to hear from you - stay tuned for SURVEY coming soon!  For info, or to get involved, contact Connie Lussier by email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
