The purpose of the Rainbow Park Phase 1 Rejuvenation Project is to improve and enhance sustainable transportation access, emphasize safe routes for pedestrian and cycling users, improve the arrival experience to a major park, reduce irrigation demands on the potable water supply, connect the park washroom to the newly installed sanitary sewer system on Alta Lake Road and undertake railway crossing improvements.
This project advances several outcomes from the 2021 Summer Experience Plan as well as community goals including the Climate Action “Big Moves” Strategy, the Recreation and Leisure Master Plan, and the emerging Active Transportation Plan. The project is a meaningful opportunity to reduce GHG emissions associated with park visits.
