NEWS RELEASE -NORTH SASKATCHEWAN RIVER PARK UPDATE

TRMH.png

The Town of Rocky Mountain House is the owner of the North Saskatchewan River Park (NSRP), which is located within the municipality of Clearwater County. The NSRP is important to both municipalities in providing economic benefit to the region and enhancing the quality of life of the citizens through recreational and entertainment events.

A long-standing issue with the park is having an appropriate entrance from Highway 11A into the NSRP that meets the requirements of Alberta Transportation. This is to ensure proper traffic flow and safe turning lanes. The absence of a proper intersection has resulted in difficulties in allowing additional events at the NSRP.

The County and the Town are currently working cooperatively in th?e design and upgrading of the intersection, with anticipated completion in 2019. Until this is complete, the County and the Town will be reviewing any event requests at the NSRP on a case by case basis. It is the intent to review each application to assess if there would be a traffic concern at the intersection and if so, what alternative measures can be done to mitigate the concern. 

The long running events such as the Rodeo, Chuckwagons and Demolition Derby are approved to continue their events. The Town and the County will be working with the Jeep Rodeo for a 2019 event.

The Town and County look forward to the future growth of the park as we continually invest in and improve the NSRP.
