The City of Edmonton is redeveloping Rollie Miles Athletic Field District Park because of its aging infrastructure. The park includes the parkland and sports fields to the north and south of Strathcona Composite High School as well as Scona Pool.
The 400 metre track and track and field elements were replaced in 2014 and will not be reconstructed during this project. George S. Hughes arena is part of the City’s 10 Year Arena Strategy and will not be redeveloped during this project.
The City is conducting engagement sessions to find out more about community needs, demand for park elements, and park functionality. City Administration will put forward two concept plans for the park to City Council in the fall of 2016. One plan will include a facility and the other will not. The only opportunity to continue to have an aquatic facility on the site is if Council chooses the concept plan with the facility.
