“Bridgeland has more diversity, we fit in here as a family.”
For the last year, Active Neighbourhoods has been working with residents, business owners and the community association in Bridgeland to engage citizens in the planning and development occurring in the neighbourhood and improve the community’s access to active transportation options.
We have collected a number of photos and quotes from community members about what they thing the Bridgeland community needs more of.
Memorial Drive and Edmonton Trail
“There should be a pedestrian and bike bridge across Memorial.”
“We need to add bike lanes, wider sidewalk, reduce [car] lanes in this intersection.”
“Bud’s Building [on Edmonton Trail near Memorial Drive] is covered in lots of graffiti, and feels dangerous. It’s actually a heritage building, could this be a reason to clean the building up?”
“All the cross walks between Memorial and the bottom of the hill on 4th Street NE feel dangerous because they are difficult to access for pedestrians and pedestrians are often not visible to cars”
