Great Chief Park access affected by upgrade work

Trees being removed at Great Chief Park to make way for new entrances

A section of Great Chief Park will be closed to the public on Thursday while upgrades are underway.

The area of the park near the west parking lot, including the entrance road, will be closed from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday.

Crews will be removing trees near the west parking lot, so two new entrances can be created to improve traffic flow and safety as part of the Great Chief Park Enhancement Project.

The area will re-open on Friday, however, the road leading into Great Chief Park will have intermittent lane closures and the west parking lot will remain closed until Saturday. Park users will be directed to park in the north parking lot.

Work as part of the Great Chief Park Enhancement Project, includes constructing a new synthetic sports field and a 400-metre speed skating oval. A new field house/pavilion, which will include a concession, public washrooms, change rooms, meeting space, and a timekeeper and media area.

A new maintenance building will also be built, electrical services upgraded and parking lots reconfigured.
